You know what they call the Big Mac in India?
So you think you know the McDonald’s menu like the back of your hand? Think again. From McDonald’s international, here are some menu items you have probably never tried before.
Good morning, welcome to McDonald’s. May I have your order please?
In India, there are no Big Macs because the Hindu people don’t eat beef.
However, they have the Maharaja Mac, which is a Big Mac made of lamb or chicken meat. There is also a vegetarian burger, the McAloo Tikki.
In fish-loving Norway, they have the McLaks, a sandwich made of grilled salmon and dill sauce.
It’s bottoms up in Germany, where McDonald’s serves beer!
In parts of Canada, have a lobster dinner with the McLobster lobster roll. Pardon me – “McHomard” (in French).
Japan totally reinvents McDonald’s with its Ebi Filet-O (shrimp burgers), Koroke Burger (mashed potato, cabbage and katsu sauce, all in a sandwich), Ebi-Chiki (shrimp nuggets) and Green Tea-flavored milkshake!
In Chile, you can dress your burgers with – not ketchup – avocado paste!
In Costa Rica, unsurprisingly, you can order Gallo Pinto, meaning rice and beans.
It’s not Greek without pita, so when in Greece, have a Greek Mac, a burger made of patties wrapped in pita.
Rice-loving Hong Kong, has – of course – Rice Burgers, where the burgers are in between, not burger buns, but two patties of glutinous rice.
In Israel, McDonald’s has 3 kosher restaurants where cheeseburger and dairy products are not served because Jewish Law forbids serving “the child [cow/beef] in its mother’s milk [dairy].” They have McShawarma, meat in a pita bread roll.
In Uruguay, they have the McHuevo, which is like a regular hamburger, but it is topped with a poached egg.
