What's on the sesame bun? Unique McDonald's dishes in different countries

Millions of people love McDonald's, including for the fact that, no matter what country you come to, no matter what remote place you go, the Big Mac will still be the same as in a restaurant at home. But this does not mean that the menu is the same everywhere. In almost every country, employees of the corporation from time to time invent a dish adapted to national preferences. It turns out that McDonald's can be included in the program of gastronomic tourism. What a turnaround!

Probably, there is not a single Asian country where burgers with rice rolls did not appear. But only in Singapore and Korea they stayed for a long time. I wonder how much starch they add to keep this burger from crumbling in your hands?

How to identify a Japanese person if he is wearing sunglasses? Offer him to pour salted French fries with chocolate. If he agrees, he's definitely Japanese. In no other country in the world has McDonald's even tried to conduct this experiment, but the Japanese liked it.

In Mexico, the culture of fast food has a long history, and it is not surprising that McDonald's actively adapts to the national cuisine. Here, for example, is McMollets-a kind of traditional Mexican breakfast dish. Fried beans, cheese, and salsa on a flatbread.

In Canada and New England, you can try the Atlantic lobster sandwich during the summer season. This pleasure is quite expensive, so it is not included in the permanent menu.

Who would have thought that McDonald's spaghetti would take root somewhere else, except in Italy (in the Apennines, this is a seasonal dish). But the Filipinos were such lovers of pasta that McSpaghetti has not left the menu for several years. 

Middle East — McArabia

In Arab countries, in addition to the usual burgers, you can find McArabia-a flatbread with chicken cutlet, vegetables, cheese and sour cream sauce. In Israel, the exact same treat is called McShawarma.

Malaysia-bubur ayam

Bubur ayam is a Malaysian porridge with chicken, generously flavored with green onions and hot pepper. McDonald's chose to add a boiled egg to the age-old recipe.
