  • Nikhil: From calorie count to portion sizes,

  • we wanted to find out all the differences

  • between Burger King in India and the US.

  • This is "Food Wars."

  • In Burger King India, our drinks come in one standard size,

  • which looks to be your small or medium,

  • but you can also opt for a can of 330 ml.

  • Burger King in the US, our drinks come in four sizes.

  • Value, small,

  • medium, and large.

  • Let's measure this cup to see

  • how much is actually in here.

  • Does this make anybody else want to pee,

  • or is it just me?

  • Joe: 34 ounces.

  • Well, it says 38 at the bottom of the cup.

  • It ain't 38.

  • Our Burger King fries come in two sizes,

  • medium and king.

  • [angelic singing]

  • Our fries come in four sizes.

  • Value, small,

  • medium, large.

  • I remember the large being bigger than this.

  • I'm just glad that the fuss we rose

  • for the first UK-US "Food Wars" Burger King

  • has resulted fry transparency.

  • Next up, chicken fries.

  • I didn't know this was a thing,

  • so I'm very excited to eat them.

  • It should have five pieces.

  • Three.

  • Four.

  • Five.

  • Six!

  • Thank you, Burger King!

  • Oh, never mind.

  • One of the fries had broken. They gave me five.

  • Ours also is one size. Nine chicken fries.

  • It's like a pack of chicken cigarettes.

  • Seven, eight, nine.

  • A nice brown on brown.

  • Yeah. We thought ahead for this one.

  • Next one we shoot, I'm wearing all brown.

  • I'm wearing a brown jumpsuit.

  • We're gonna paint this brown.

  • The most unwatchable series.

  • Here's everything you'll find on the menu

  • at Burger King India that you won't find in the US.

  • And here's everything you can get at a US Burger King

  • you can't get in India.

  • Let's begin with the Whoppers!

  • This is a good time to mention that here in India,

  • most fast-food restaurants do not serve beef or pork

  • to keep the religious sentiments of both Hindus and Muslims.

  • Conservative Hindus will not

  • enter a restaurant that serves beef.

  • Conservative Muslims might not

  • enter a restaurant that serves pork.

  • All right. Keeping all of that in mind,

  • let us begin with the chicken Whopper.

  • Whoo, boy!

  • OK, Burger King definitely has larger burgers

  • than most other restaurants here in India.

  • Look at this. It's the size of my face.

  • I am the Burger King.

  • That's so good.

  • You might notice if you are a regular

  • Burger King consumer of the foreign lands

  • that if you were to eat this one,

  • it's a little spicier.

  • And I think they've done that

  • because most Indians love their spice.

  • There's a lot of bite to it.

  • Next up, double chicken patty.

  • Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!

  • This one's got some heft to it, huh?

  • The mutton Whopper.

  • Mutton, if you are unaware, is goat meat,

  • and Burger King is one of the few fast-food chains here

  • that actually serves red meat of some kind.

  • Indians love their mutton.

  • I love my mutton.

  • It's definitely more meaty.

  • Has a lot more bite to it than the chicken.

  • God, Burger King, what are you doing?

  • The quality is out of control.

  • Every beef burger at Burger King is a US exclusive.

  • Got all the Whoppers.

  • Let's start down here.

  • The little guy, the Whopper Jr.

  • Not enough meat, you say?

  • You can get yourself a double Whopper.

  • Same burger, two patties.

  • Can they go bigger? They can.

  • The triple Whopper.

  • Look at this thing.

  • Hey.

  • Close your mouth when you're taking a picture.

  • The Texans of the audience

  • might have to help us out in the comments here.

  • The Texas double Whopper.

  • Texas prides itself, from what I can tell,

  • on always going bigger.

  • So why wouldn't it be the Texas triple Whopper?

  • A rare moment where Texas was reserved.

  • Texans of the internet,

  • I think you guys need to step in here.

  • I don't think that sandwich is doing you guys proud.

  • On to the veg options.

  • This is a veg Whopper.

  • I expect great things from this bad boy.

  • I would say this is pretty lackluster.

  • Next up, veggie double burger,

  • if you want double the disappointment.

  • Another thing that we have that technically isn't beef

  • is the Impossible Whopper,

  • which is made with Impossible beef.

  • I'm actually very curious,

  • how does the Impossible burger patty taste, Joe?

  • Regular beef.

  • I have to hand it to them. It tastes exactly the same.

  • If you want to give the environment a break,

  • maybe get one of these every once in a while.

  • Next up, we have an exclusive King collection of burgers.

  • These better be quite royal and aristocratic.

  • No. 1, Hot 'n' Cheezy veg.

  • Lot of jalapeños.

  • The patty actually has, like, cheese melt in it.

  • Hot 'n' Cheezy Kings collection,

  • on a scale of common villager to the king himself,

  • I would rate this village bard.

  • Once in a while

  • you want him there just to appease a few people,

  • but otherwise pretty lackluster.

  • Paneer Royale.

  • Just by the name itself,

  • this one should be incredible.

  • So, paneer, if you don't know, is cottage cheese,

  • and here in India, it is almost a staple.

  • We eat it in everything. We eat it in curries.

  • We sometimes just sear it and eat it plain.

  • And obviously it had to make its way to burgers.

  • The paneer is really good. Chewy and delicious.

  • I would rate the Paneer Royale

  • a local baron.

  • Helps the king around a little bit.

  • Now on to the two non-veg options. We have fiery chicken.

  • Plain and simple.

  • They just want this meat to blow my mind.

  • It's just spicy. That's all it is.

  • It doesn't have the depth of flavor

  • that the chicken Whoppers did.

  • Chicken tandoori.

  • If you guys don't know what a tandoor is,

  • it's basically this cylindrical oven

  • that we heat up using wood fire and charcoal traditionally,

  • and we use it to create everything from kebabs to breads.

  • I doubt all Burger King outlets

  • have an actual tandoor in their restaurants,

  • but let's see if they were able

  • to replicate that smoky flavor.

  • On a scale of absolute street urchins to maharajas,

  • I would rate these two court traitors

  • that tried to backstab the king, and now they're on trial.

  • They have a lot of bark but not enough bite.

  • They're gonna be executed.

  • Non-Whopper burgers, aka burgers.

  • You can get yourself something called the Big King.

  • And that's what it looks like. Don't have it.

  • What we do have is the single quarter-pound King.

  • Bacon King!

  • I would say generous amount of bacon.

  • It's great.

  • Then these little, much more reasonable-size burgers.

  • Bacon cheeseburger.

  • Bacon double cheeseburger.
