    I wouldn’t eat there. I applaud their efforts with a vegetarian restaurant, but I feel as though the only reason they’re doing so is because of religious beliefs, not ethical reasons. The reason I wouldn’t eat there is because its still Mc Donald’s, and they’re still profiting from it and they’re still slaughter innocent animals. If they shut down all of the meat selling locations and went totally vegetarian, then maybe I’d give it a shot :)

    I think it’s really cool, maybe if it does well they will open up more vegetarian locations in other countries, I would just be happy to have more vegetarian fast food options. I get the aspect of not wanting to support McDonalds, but in the same sense I find it similar to peta2 encouraging ordering vegan options from Taco Bell, even though they are owned by the same place that KFC is, and the money is going to the same spot. I think it’s just supporting the fact that these companies have veg*an options, opposed to just burgers/chicken/etc, it’s showing them that there is a market for meat free, even in the fast food world.

    I think they are doing it to cater more to people who don’t eat meat for religious reason than for compassionate reasons.

    That’s good that they are trying to go meat-free but it is still only ONE restaurant. They should start doing this is the U.S. I still wouldn’t trust them though and wouldn’t visit this location since it’s still money going is McDonald’s pocket. I just hate McDonalds so much for all the cruelty towards animals and just how disgusting is is. I stopped eating there almost two years ago when I found a roach in my fries. EW!

    Wouldn’t eat there, because it’s still money in their pockets, but at least it’s one less restaurant selling meat.
