McDonald's Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Al Ain, RAK, UAE

McDonald's (not MacDonald's) is a well known fast food outlet specialising in hamburgers that make you fat according to Morgan Spurlock (Mr Supersize Me), but not according to Ronald McDonald (a plastic clown). Whatever you think about the cholesterol levels and health food rating of a Big Mac and fries, McDonalds is popular and prevalent in Dubai, UAE, and the Middle East. Walk into the food court of most large shopping centers in the UAE, and the largest queues (and perhaps customers) are invariably at the McDonalds counter loading up with food trays that don't always include a salad. And if you wonder why your chips and drink are always bigger than expected, that's because McDonald's staff ask if you want a "medium" size meal when they mean "upsize" (how many people knew that medium meant "bigger", not "what I asked for"?).

McDonalds Breakfast in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Sharjah

From around April or May 2009, Mc Donald's in the UAE have started serving their delicious (well, we think so anyway) breakfasts in some branches, breakfast time from 0500-1100 (5am to 11am). Shopping center branches of Mc Donalds don't serve breakfast, presumably because most shopping centers in the UAE don't open until 10am. Also, disappointingly, the Dubai Airport McDonalds branches don't serve breakfast either, even though they're open 24 hours. Egg McMuffins with turkey bacon or non-pork sausages, hash browns (a bit on the greasy side), pancakes, scrambled egg meals are all available. McDonalds branches in the UAE that do serve breakfast as of June 2009 (contact us if any information is incorrect or needs updating) are:
