Taste the Goose Liver burger in McDonald’s!

Are you eager to taste some Hungarian goose liver while in Budapest? You don’t have to run to a gourmet restaurant and spend lots of money. Instead, you can simply visit a local McDonald’s restaurant and order a new burger, the Goosey Gustav burger.

As a result, you will most likely not find this if you come to Budapest in a year or more. However, those who will visit Budapest in the coming months will have the chance to enjoy this “gourmet-burger” in McDonald’s.

What is the Goosey Gustav judgment?

If you want a gourmet meal in Budapest, don’t go to McDonald’s (I guess that doesn’t come as a shock). But, if you want to simply taste some goose liver and go home and brag about how you ate goose liver in Hungary, this can actually get the job done.

The taste of the burger is nice, and it is easy to enjoy, even for those who are skeptic about the taste of goose liver. The dressing is nice, and the meat used is also tasty. Some will complain and say that the authentic goose liver taste has been liquidated (meaning that it doesn’t have a strong enough taste), but many people will enjoy this burger exactly for that reason.
