Last week I published a map of the number of vegetarian restaurants per 1 million inhabitants in Europe, and I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the other side of the coin as well, and what could be more “opposite” to being vegetarian than hamburgers at McDonald’s?

The map is based on an article on Wikipedia that lists the number of McDonald’s outlets by country. It is interesting, but perhaps not surprising, that the number is higher in wealthier countries than in less wealthy Eastern European countries.

What could be rather surprising is the number for France, which is among the highest in Europe. Even though the French are stereotyped as a nation of gourmets, they enjoy their fast food as much as other European nations.
