WHen the World Cup was in Japan and South Korea, I got to travel to Taiwan to see my in-laws. The McD's there had special burgers representing the countries and they'd sell them for as long as the countries were in the Cup.

They had a teriyaki burger, a pork cutlet burger (with katsu sauce) and a kimchi burger. The kimchi burger was the best, but they stopped selling it when Korea lost.

So basically they're taking local food and putting it on a cheap McDonald's hamburger bun.

As always

They don't list the vegan burger they have here, of 'course I see three reasons for this

1) its mcDonalds its not somewhere Vegans really want to go

2)they made it with the help of dietists, healthy food at McDonalds, do not compute

3) it tastes like cardboard with a bit of hotsauce

When I was in London, 1999, the two items McDonald's was pushing were the McChicken Korma Naan and Lamb McSpicy. (Is the use of "pattie" in the singular a Brit thing, or is it just misspelled?)

No it's a Brit thing I believe, but I'm baffled by their choice of Carolingian font to make it look Indian. I keep thinking of Hobbits and medieval texts!

It's good to see McDonald's making food shitty for everyone.

World-wide obesity, ho!

Mos' Taco Nan was always my go-to option if it was in-season. Failing that, you can't beat the classic Mos Burger.

No mention of a Royale with cheese.

Disappointed.

Actually there was, if you would read the article.

Quote:
France: Croque McDo

The country that immortalized the "Royale with Cheese" in the classic film Pulp Fiction has another local McDonald's creation to boast about. This take on the croque-monsieur, the classic French open-faced ham and cheese sandwich, is popular with Parisians and tourists alike. As one American visitor to France exclaimed about the breakfast sandwich in her blog: "this was no American Happy Meal."

What kills me is that if all this stuff was actually offered in America, I'd be a lot more likely to eat at McDonalds. I'd certainly like that Indian Spicy menu.

Yeah, that spelling is British I think (although I think most people would use "patty" anyway). The Indian stuff was a fairly short lived limited edition IIRC.

Hell, I'd have most of the stuff mentioned in this thread before I dare consume another McRib.

If one of the local McDonald's had all of these menu items, it would deserve three Michelin stars. My body is ready.
