As evidenced by their mind-numbing game shows, the Japanese lead the world in a certain kind of creativity. In fact, this creativity extends to food; more specifically, McDonald’s Japan.
Keeping in line with American tradition, McDonald’s Japan has a few sandwiches and pies that were transformed for local consumption. While we were hoping they would have something like McSushi or McSoba (much like our McSpaghetti), these are still worth mentioning.
Here are 10 food items in McDonald’s Japan that you won’t find in your neighborhood Golden Arches:
1. Cheese Fondue Chicken
Chicken breast dipped in a rich cheese sauce, with bacon, lettuce, and guess what? More cheese.
2. Mega Tamago
Here’s an overwhelming Double Big Mac tower with a sunny side egg patty and bacon.
3. Bacon and Potato Pie
How about a deep-fried pie stuffed with mashed potatoes, bacon and cheese? This would probably be a hit to-go snack if it were sold locally.
4. Carbonara Chicken
Here’s some chicken breast dipped in a white cream sauce with scrambled eggs, mozzarella and bacon. Such an unhealthy way to consume lean meat, don’t you think?
A simple sausage pork patty topped with lettuce and sweet & sour sauce.
6. Korroke Burger
Welcome to carbohydrate overkill with Korroke, a fried potato patty burger-fied with shredded cabbage and Teriyaki sauce between two chunks of bread.
7. German Sausage Chicken
A more sophisticated option: fried chicken thigh patty with a slice of grilled pork sausage sandwiched with some cheese, sauerkraut, and whisper of mustard.
8. Ebi Filet-O
For the seafood-loving Japanese, a shrimp patty with lettuce and thousand island dressing.
9. Mega Sausage
A breakfast hotdog slathered with relish and ketchup.
10. Cheese Katsu Burger
Akin to the likes of a Cordon Bleu, Japan has totally owned it in this cheese-stuffed deep-friend pork patty with tonkatsu sauce.
