The Big Mac Index was introduced in 1986 as a humorous illustration of national purchasing power parity and it has been published by The Economist ever since. We found that the average price of a Big Mac burger is around €3.70. But we all know that a simple Big Mac (not a meal) won’t make you full and yes better food around the world! We want to prove to you that you can get different types of healthy meals in Asia with the same number of Big Macs in Europe.
