You can pry my beloved Filet-O-Fish from my cold, dead hands.
It’s no secret that out of all the McDonald’s burgers, the Filet-O-Fish is the one that cops the most hate.
It’s an intense hatred, too. People will judge you for daring to order this burger — and if you’re seen eating one, poof, you instantly become a running joke for your mates.
If you express anything other than vile disgust for the humble Filet-O-Fish, you’re instantly regulated to the bottommost tier of society.
But today, I’m here to express something that will instantly divide the internet — I bloody like Filet-O-Fishes and you can pry that delicious bun from my cold, dead hands
For starters, why do people hate the Filet-O-Fish? She’s a humble girl, consisting of a soft, pillowy steamed bun that’s exclusive to only a couple of burgs on the McDonald’s menu.
Then, there’s the crispy portion of fish, elevated by the addition of zesty tartar sauce. I mean, you can’t get a better flavour combination — am I right?
And if that wasn’t enough, there’s even the slice of cheese, which pulls the Filet-O-Fish together and makes it tasty AF.
I will say that Filet-O-Fishes are on the small size — they’re more of a snack, something to tantalise the tastebuds during the day.
So, what’s all the hate about? Filet-O-Fishes are simple, yes, but that’s where they excel. They’re an iconic part of the Macca’s menu and they rightfully deserve some love and appreciation.
Plus, as someone who doesn’t eat beef for religious reasons (cows are viewed as sacred animals to Hindus), growing up, the Filet-O-Fish was up there with the limited amount of choices my family and I could order.
Plus, if you think I’m alone in my love for this Macca’s burger, think again. We exist and believe that everyone needs to stop slandering the good name of Filet-O-Fishes.
So, rise up fellow Filet-O-Fish stans. You’re not alone in your love for this burger. Continue to order it happily and enjoy what others are so plainly missing out on.
