You can eat a Changnyeong garlic burger till late summer, starting from 4th of Aug. Prices for the set menu and single product both rose by 500 won.
On the day of the interview with Consumerwide, McDonald's person said, "We appreciate our customers' love for the Taste of Korea. We will continually approach them with fresh and delicious ingredients rooted in the Korean peninsula.
On the other hand, Burgerking jumped with an upgraded version of American taste. In June, Burgerking released a Texas chili whopper, bearing the taste of America, homeland of the hamburger. This time, Burgerking chose an upgraded version of the Texas chili whopper, that added double patties. You can get a Texas chili whopper for 11 thousand won, and a set menu for 12 thousand won. Sales records have not been opened up to the public.
A Burgerking related person said, "We got to release a Double Texas chili whopper following the Texas chili whopper. Our new menu is an upgraded version; it has two patties, and the taste is even better...Burgerking doesn't open a public sale record of Texas chili whopper. Thank you for your understanding."
