Re: Why does the Filet O Fish have cheese?

When I used to eat that kind of stuff, I used to like the Filet O' Fish, and I always got it with cheese, and without tartar sauce.

Tartar sauce is a vile abomination that should be considered a substance of torture by the Geneva Convention.

I have never eaten a Filet-O-Fish, nor would I ever, but I don't see the big deal about putting cheese on seafood. I've seen it put on chicken, why not fish?

Now cheese on APPLE PIE, however, that's another matter.

it's not a big deal, just unusual. As I wrote, other fast food fish sandwiches don't have cheese, and the combination of fried fish and a slice of cheese is just a strange one to me.

Yeah, I've seen people add cheese to a Burger King original chicken or a McD Mcchicken, and that's kind of disgusting, too.

I'm really trying to psych myself into trying a filet o fish, though.

I can't stand McDonald's, but when I have to eat it, I either go for McNuggets or the filet-o-fish - but never with "cheese."

It's not that I find the combination of fish and cheese strange, it's just that I can't stomach that orange processed vegetable oil stuff.

Yeah, really, calling it "cheese" is unfair to cheese. American "Cheese" I can handle on a burger (but prefer cheddar, swiss) but on anything much else? Oy, it's a chore. Congealed colored vegetable oil with some milk added. Yep, that's "cheese" alright!

I love tartar sauce. Wonderful with battered fish. Steak tartare is fantastic, too. But that's another story.

Re: Why does the Filet O Fish have cheese?

The whole sandwich has a really strange after taste. I worked the closing shift at a Mickey D's when I was 18 (oh to be 18 again....) and we got to split and take home whatever was left unsold. For some reason the Filet O Fish were like gold nuggets the way they'd fight over them which led me to discovering that the Quarter Pounder is an underrated burger.

I worked at McD's in 1977-78, while in high school. I cannot stand tartar sauce, so I would put Mac Sauce [Big Mac's special sauce] on mine. To this day, I still order my occasional Filet-O-Fish that way.
