No McLobster? NO McLOBSTER?!?!

Well, they did say America and it's available in New England.

But why no McCrab in the PNW? Why?????

If you're going to McDonald's looking for "good food," yer doin it wrong.

Royale with cheese?

I heard that in Paris, you can go into a McDonalds and order a beer.
 
2012-10-09 10:35:02 AM  
Still not going to McDonald's. It's too much of a symbol of everything wrong with the world.

The Prosperity Burger looked pretty good. I miss the old cheddar melt they used to have once in a while.
 
2012-10-09 10:35:55 AM  
This is actually something I usually do when I'm abroad. Walk into a McDonalds not to eat, but just to see what's different. And a lot of the ones in TFA would actually interest me.

A rep brought us chick fil a breakfast and they have the best breakfast of the fast food chains. Their eggs taste like fluffy, little clouds. Mcdonalds has that big breakfast which isn't bad, but its like 1500 calories O_o

The Moroccan and Turkish looks damn tasty.

I guess I am really saying I should hit a halal cart for lunch. Or maybe Maoz.

I think the "no good food at McDonald's" crowd just don't want to admit they a) go to McDonald's or b) don't want to be seen at McDonald's so they can continue to pretend they're better than the rest of us.

nah the thing is we get shiatty, tasteless food at mcd's in the states. I can attest to the fact that Indian McDonald's is just so much better.

Could you imagine the derp that would come from the right if they tried to introduce any of those here?
 
2012-10-09 10:39:08 AM  
I'm sure it's an abomination if you're used to actual Indian food, but that McPaneer wrap looked pretty good. Then again, a regular McDonald's hamburger looks pretty good in the publicity stills, too.

Best McD's meal I ever had was a lobster roll in Nova Scotia.

Oh right... That *IS* in America...

/sorry

The Prosperity burger says beef, but it looks like they use the McRib die to press it.
 
2012-10-09 10:41:18 AM  
The chestnut custard pie from Japan was more awesome than any apple pie from here.

Also, their burgers look like the pictures. No, they don't have half squashed burgers in their pictures just so they can say that.

Their coffee's decent. Also, I have a friend from college who swears by their soft serve ice cream cones.

/It's a good value, I suppose.

I doubt the images in TFA are accurate representations either.

Any Indian Farkers have experience with the McPaneer? Can you take a photo of what you get vs. what is advertised? I'm confident it looks like a limp wrist.
 
2012-10-09 10:42:46 AM  
Go away, troll.
 
2012-10-09 10:43:05 AM  
Also...

...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."

Yeah, well, that's the whole point of travel, innit? Broaden your horizons. Experiment with a different culture's McDonald's® Happy Meal™.

I had chicken wings at a mcdonalds in china, they were pretty good if memory serves.

/no, I did not want to fly halfway around the world to go to McDonalds.
//Was really pissed that we went, actually.
 
2012-10-09 10:45:01 AM  
That Prosperity Burger is just the McRib, you'll never convince me otherwise.
 
2012-10-09 10:46:02 AM  
McDonald's is sh*tty here in the US, and the only proof you need is to eat at McD's in an another country. The burgers and buns and overall quality in Japan is incomparable to the US. You come back to the US and it's obvious that you're getting "grade D" rock-bottom quality food over here.

You can like it, but don't pretend that it's not government-grade, sh*t-ass quality.

Portuguese sausage, spam, rice and eggs.

Only available in Hawaii.....and freaking delicious.

Is this going to become a weekly thing now? Seems like this is the third or fourth "fast food items available in other countries" threads in as many weeks...

All of those sandwiches make that 800 lb. cremated corpse in Georgia seem appetizing.

Too lazy to click. List fails without beer (available in Germany)
 
2012-10-09 10:50:09 AM  
Just back from a trip to Germany, I walked into the Glenview, IL McDonald's and said, "I'd like a beer with that Big Mac."
"Sir, McDonald's doesn't serve beer."
"The one that I was in yesterday did."

It's called pandering to your fan base. Fast food is relevant to the interests of 98.634% of Farkers.
 
2012-10-09 10:53:58 AM  
Never bothered to get it since I preferred the street vendors, but in Czech you can get the McSmazak, which is like a mozzarella stick made into a patty and put on a bun. It's called Smazeny Syr (fried cheese) and it's the best late night drinking snack.

This.

Also, the McRib is available YEAR ROUND in Germany.

China: Prosperity Burger

FARKING NO

That burger brought me prosperous diarrhea. I have never consumed that much black pepper in one sitting on ONE FREAKING SANDWICH. Was ok going down but the prosperity hit me when I was on an airplane. Nothing like the bathroom of a little Chinese plane made for little Chinese people to have an intestinal explosion.

/I do like the Taro pies though

I'll vote for the latter.

List fails with the glaring omission of the McRib.

A few Saturday Mornings a year I take all 5 kids to McDonalds for breakfast and let Mrs. Engineer sleep in. I get two big breakfasts, and feed them all. Then I let them burn off some energy and work out their immune systems by letting them play on the playplace.

//To be fair, the oldest is 9...
 
2012-10-09 11:01:41 AM  
I live in the D/FW area all my life and one of the strangest items I saw at Mcdonalds was a pizza. I forgot where I was since this was about 15-20 years ago on a road trip.
