    India: BigSpicy Paneer Wrap
    This fast food take on a common Indian street food is both spicy and vegetarian, making it a hit at the 271 McDonald's locations in India. Made with breaded paneer, a type of South Asian cheese, the BigSpicy Paneer Wrap is one of many vegetarian McDonald's innovations, which have been so successful that the chain plans to open two all-vegetarian locations in India next year.

    Japan: Ebi Filet-O
    Part of McDonald's Japan President Eikoh Harada's push to tailor food to Japanese taste, the Ebi Filet-O generated sales of 10 million in the first three months after its launch in October 2005. Made with breaded shrimp, this Japanese version of the classic Filet-O-Fish is modeled after the traditional Japanese dish of shrimp tempura and costs around $5.70 in Tokyo.

    Turkey: Kofteburger
    The Kofteburger is the McDonaldization of kofte, a type of Turkish kebab made with mint and parsley. So authentic that even the bun is sprinkled with parsley, the Kofteburger has been a hit with Turkish customers, and as one American visitor put it, "it's good but it doesn't taste like a burger...it tastes very...Turkish."

    Thailand: Samurai Pork Burger
    The name says it all. Featuring a pork patty marinated in Teriyaki sauce and smothered in peppers, the Samurai Pork burger is McDonald's attempt to put a Thai twist on the classic Big Mac, although the fast food giant may be a little off the geographical mark on this one. As one customer asks, "Why does it have a Japanese name when I'm in Thailand?"


    [​IMG]

    Morocco: McArabia
    Priced at about $6.50, variations on the McArabia are available in countries across the Middle East. But Moroccans, especially, seem to have taken to this cumin-spiced flatbread beef sandwich. As one customer told the Global Post, "Honestly, it tastes Moroccan."


    [​IMG]

    China: Prosperity Burger
    A seasonal item only available around the Chinese New Year, the Prosperity Burger is made with beef smothered in black pepper sauce and onions. Customers in China and other East Asian countries can also enjoy local delicacies like taro pie, a variation of the classic apple version, as well as red bean sundaes.


    [​IMG]

    France: Croque McDo
    The country that immortalized the "Royale with Cheese" in the classic film Pulp Fiction has another local McDonald's creation to boast about. This take on the croque-monsieur, the classic French open-faced ham and cheese sandwich, is popular with Parisians and tourists alike. As one American visitor to France exclaimed about the breakfast sandwich in her blog: "this was no American Happy Meal."


    [​IMG]

    Poland: The WiesMac
    This quarter-pound beef patty, translated into English as the "Country Mac," is served with mustard and horseradish sauce on a sesame bun. "Everytime I eat WiesMac...I want to die," says one Polish customer in an online discussion, "But it is very tasty." Apparently, McDonald's guilt transcends differences of language and culture.


    [​IMG]

    Mexico: McMollete
    The Mexican version of a McMuffin minus the egg, this international McDonald's breakfast creation consists of refried beans, cheese, and pico de gallo, or Mexican salsa, atop a muffin. The dish takes its inspiration from molletes, a classic Mexican comfort food.


    [​IMG]

    The Netherlands: McKroket
    When McDonald's first moved to the Netherlands in the seventies, they tried to tempt Dutch customers with erwtensoep, or pea soup. Although that venture was unsuccessful, the McKroket has proven a much more profitable local item. A deep-fried patty of beef ragout on a bun, the McKroket costs roughly $2.50 and is McDonald's take on the traditional Dutch croquet.


    Plus, because I'm feeling nice...from mighty Australia:

    I love it!

    When I go out of state, I always ask if they serve the "Texas Homestyle Burger"... (only sold in Texas)...

    Fun will be had by all. :grin:

    Lol. I'll have to try it. Sounds like hilarity would indeed ensue.

    I think in Spain, they still had the Texas Whopper (it was 7 years ago, so maybe I am not remembering correctly)

    BUT the McRib is king, KING I TELLS YA

    JK, seriously after watching Food Inc I'm not surprised one bit. It's been a long time since anything American has had any reputation for quality (weapons excluded)

    We've had the ebi burger and the samurai burger in Hong Kong, both were ****ING AMAZING. The sweet corn/lobster bisque at McDonalds in HK were awesome too.

    I know one thing. McDonalds has some of the best chicken in Peru.
    You'd think you were in a KFC. They even have KFC's here, but even with
    that McDonald's still has better chicken.
    And this is a country that LIVES on chicken. You can find a polleria
    on almost every block.

    Not a healthy food snob. But I'll never touch McDonald's again. So far it's been 10 years.
