Specialty McDonalds???[moved from General Chowhounding board]

I lived in Australia for some time and would occasionally get the “McAussie” burger. It was a quarter pounder topped with beets and a fried egg. I was reading the thread about food that people had never tried and someone mentioned they had Big Mac with Kimchi on it in Korea.

What American fast-food joint (ie BK, McD, ect..) have you tried overseas that came with an interesting twist?

  1. Growing up in Hawaii, we could always get saimin at McDonalds. Also, while you can't get mac&cheese at the franchised KFCs there, you can get a scoop of white rice topped with chili.

    1. Not overseas, but in the Chicago area they used to serve hot dogs, pizza, and fajitas!

        And on Cape Cod, you can find lobster roll.s

      2. I had a lamb burger at (I think) Burger King in Wales. They also had a chicken tikka sandwich which looked good!

        1. McDonalds in Japan have a sandwich called the "Ebi Filet-O", it's basically a Filet O Fish made out of shrimp that have been pressed together and fried. Totally awesome, incredibly addictive.

            I had a friend who lived in Japan for a year and she was addicted to the fish nuggets.

              Loved the fish nuggets in Japan! And the shrimp brugers. In England, Mac D's has veggie burgers (they used to have a specialty veggie burger too), bacon rolls, 99 'flake' cones and 'porridge'. They used to serve hot dogs too. France has the McD's version of a 'Croque Monsieur', and 'fancy' coffees like cappuccinos and lattes.

          2. The teriyaki burger served at Japanese McD was pretty tasty.
