McDonalds Menus From Around The World: Which Ones Are Worth Trying?

When traveling, some travelers use McDonalds as a gauge for how expensive a place is to visit. They equate the cost of items on a McDonalds menu with the cost of living in that location. Other travelers pop into a McDonalds to see if any interesting local foods are on the menu, foods they can’t order from a US McDonalds menu. And though I rarely pop into a McDonalds, the more I read about some of the local items on their menus that I’ve missed in my travels, I’m thinking I just might start checking out McDonalds menus when I visit a place.

For instance, the Cadbury Cream Egg McFlurry in Canada and Australia could be yummy. Hummus and chicken salad on a McDonalds menu in Sweden? Just got back from Sweden, so missed this one too. A Georgie Pie in New Zealand sounds tasty. Pork Porridge in Thailand. Just missed this opportunity as well. Diversity of menus in chains we’re familiar with is interesting, and frankly I had no idea chain restaurants provided such local offerings.

These two articles here and here are fascinating glimpses into the food scene in MANY countries and how it has been incorporated into a McDonalds menu. My list of having tried ANY of these starts at zero. Which ones have you tried and are they any good?

    The bulgogi burger in Seoul was not all that healthy but was awful tasty. Plus, the restroom signs there had what looked like dancing stick figures on the doors. For best display, I’d have to go with the giant McBaguette window picture in Switzerland, although I haven’t tried that one.

      That kind of salad would appeal to me. Maybe someone who’s recently been to Romania can chime in and let us know if it’s still on the menu and still as good. Thanks, RA!

      HI Dan, I’ll be in Tokyo soon so I’ll look for the shrimp on top whopper. Was in Singapore last year so missed that one. How did I miss the lobster sandwich in Italy? That would have been fun to try and compare to places like NYC or Boston where I adore the lobster rolls. Thanks for your suggestions!
