These Food Hacks Will Make You Head Straight To McDonald’s Now

December 3, 2017

McDonald’s classic offerings are so iconic that they belong in some sort of pantheon for food. Quarter Pounders, Big Macs—everyone has their ideal item off the menu. Sometimes however, it can be fun to play around with the classics. Here, we’ve come up with some ways to hack what they have on offer in order to make your ideal items your own.

Eggs Benedict

Order an Egg McMuffin right before the breakfast menu disappears, and the crew starts lunch service. Get a side of Ala King Sauce for an additional 15 pesos, open up your muffin, and pour all over for an instant version of the brunch classic.

Mushroom Pepper Chicken Fillet

There’s nothing wrong with gravy, but this food hack turns your usual Chicken Fillet into something that’s almost like the way Southern folks make their country fried chicken. Ask for Mushroom Pepper Steak Sauce, and top your Chicken Fillet with it.

BBQ Crispy Chicken Sandwich

If you’ve never thought of doing this before, it might etch itself permanently into your McDonald’s vocabulary. With a stroke of genius, forget the ketchup and ask for a side of BBQ sauce instead, when ordering a Crispy Chicken Sandwich. What you get is a smoky version of the snack, with the rich barbeque sauce a stark foil to the creamy mayonnaise.


Make a cheaper but just as awesome version of the Italian staple with only two ingredients from the regular menu. Pour a McCafe Premium Roast Coffee over plain Sundae and let the intensity of the brew mimic Italian espresso. If you want things sweeter and creamier, you can mix in sugar and cream before letting the coffee sink into the soft serve.

McDo Secret Menu

The OG of food hacks has actually brought everyone’s crazy food ideas to life. If you’ve ever thought of combining a Big Mac and  a Filet-O-Fish, there’s now the mouth watering Surf N’ Turf! Increase your patty intake—Double Quarter Pounders with cheese, Triple Cheeseburgers, and Double McChickens now exist on McDonald’s Secret Menu.

Unlike the other food hacks, these premium hybrid burgers can be ordered straight from McDonald’s friendly crew! You simply have to ask about it in the counter, pass by McDonald’s Drive-Thru, or order via McDelivery hotline (86-2-36.)

May it be McDonald’s four new hybrids or our other food hack suggestions, we’re pretty sure you’d be coming back for more—tell us which one’s becoming your regular order.
