The Cold Filtered Ramblings of Gene Mueller

McDonald's menu items you won't see in the U-S

In China, it's called the "manly" burger.

Here, it looks like a Big Mac with mashed potatoes.  Not alongside the sandwich.  On top of it, where the secret sauce usually resides.

Welcome to the McDonald's international menu.

The Chicago Tribune lists some 30 items that  Mickey D's serves up globally, but not here in the states.   Chicken porridge in Malaysia.  McCurry pan in India.  My personal favorite looks like something you'd find at any Sheboygan restaurant: the Nurnburger of Germany featuring three (count 'em) three brats on a soft bun.   In my former hometown, brats are most often downed two at a time on a semmel roll.  Leave it to the folks in the Fatherland to do that one better.

 

Some are kind of pedestrian--the corn bowl, which is exactly what it says it is: a bowl full of kernel corn.  Others are a little more exotic, and there's one that should be brought stateside immediately: France's chocolate mousse, which comes in three different flavors, all of which sound darn swell.

Something else I'm surprised McDonald's hasn't imported: delivery.  It's done in many foreign countries, including Japan, Egypt, India and China.

Of course, our vanguard in terms of overseas McDonald's culinary pleasure is "Pulp Fiction's" Vince Vega who's profane (NOT SAFE FOR WORK) treatise on the Quarter Pounder remains the bench mark for our age.
