I found this great article online and I just need to share it with you! McDonalds all over the world has different menus to cater themselves to the locals. Even in Hawaii, you’ll find things like ramen, Portuguese Sausage / Eggs / Rice Plates, and taro pies. Japanese McDonalds, of course has it’s own quirks, not to mention special choices on the menu.
The Breakfast menu
The Lunch and Diner menu
Not a whole lot that’s terribly interesting here. You’ll notice that many of these items are found on your local McDonalds menu. Here’s the things that are probably unique:
If you live in Hawaii, you may be one of the lucky ones to come across one of these…uh…things? Just double the amount of meat you would normally find in a Big Mac, close your eyes, tap your ruby shoes together, and you’ll get one of these. When I tried it, I could barely fit it in my mouth, that’s how ridiculous it is. Why Japan would have a hamburger bigger than any of its counterparts in America is beyond me. I suppose it makes up for the generally smaller portions everywhere else.
Normally I am a big fan of some Thousand Island salad dressing… but that’s usually just on my salad. I can’t wrap my mind around. This is very similar to their Shrimp Burger, which we’ll take a look at right now.
The Japanese Ebi Fillet might even rival an In-n-Out burger, though that might be pushing things a little bit.
One of my favorite aspects of Japan is the constant easy access to one of my favorite foods: Croquettes (コロッケ). If you can put them in a hamburger, then more power to ya, I say. Though, I would probably just take them out from the bun and eat them separately. But then again I’m not twelve years old.
Erin says these exist from time to time in the US, so I won’t talk about them too much. I thought that maybe it was due to the ban of beef imports from a couple years back, but maybe it’s just a plain old normal hamburger
I’m a sucker when it comes to Teriyaki Burgers, and this is no exception. My mouth is watering.
There’s all sorts of great / interesting things there, but if you could only choose one, what would it be? I think I would go with the Mega Teriyaki Burger. Mmm I'm lovin it!
