Bonzo_1116: MNguy: rynthetyn:

Thailand has the Samurai Pork Burger instead of beef, it's like a McRib only a million times more awesome.

Because when in Thailand, you might as well eat Mc Donald's.

Sometimes it's interesting to see what's different in the global chains.

Samurai pork burgers are in some way more foreign than a pad Thai from some street vendor. It's like the uncanny valley of food.

/Starbucks in Korea was disappointing, the stuff was exactly the same as at home. Same decor, too.


I still have nightmares about the food court at Incheon International sometimes.  The KFC was depressingly bad, the Starbucks was the same as America but pricier, and the Korean BBQ place gave me 2 days of indigestion.  It was like a war zone in my stomach.

I'd be happy if a fast food place served a decent poutine. Burger King in the airport in Montreal has it, but thats not in the states. Five guys fries would be ideal with Wendy's coming in second.

And that's relevant why?  I assume you never set foot in 7/11 either, since that's an American company and all.  You're so superior, refusing to eat at a place that Thais eat at all the time.

You can't avoid 7/11s, that's where I bought my cigarettes.  Street food was cheap and delicious.  Get over yourself.

Seriously dude, you're the one who needs to get over yourself. You're one of those pretentious asses who thinks they're better than everybody else because you never set foot in a McDonalds. I bet you never set foot out of Khao San Road except to get too and from the airport.

Yep.  I'm the judgmental prick here.  Enjoy your Mc Donalds.

You are the judgmental prick. And since you didn't deny the KSR bit, I know I'm right.

I will judge you for being an idiotic coont.  I didn't live in BKK, and when I did, I preferred the Patpong area.


Welcome to the ignore list for being a jackass who calls people names and get insulting because they set foot in a McDonald's ONCE in Thailand. Anyone who thinks they're superior because they never set foot in an American fast food restaurant oversees has too little going for them to even be worth talking to. Also, probably lying.

You've got to eat at Lotteria, that's the most passable fastfood at Incheon.

Yay.  I just said I never tried the pork sandwich.  Since you didn't respond, I'll assume your experience in the LOS was limited two a full moon party.

Wendy's has poutine in Canada too. It's way too salty, cold, and the gravy is wrong somehow. Avoid. I agree that poutine made from Five Guys fries would be outstanding.

I'd just like some of the regional US offerings to be made available nation wide.  I'm looking at your McDonalds, where's my McLobster Roll and Crab Cake?

Bonzo_1116: The McDonald's in Hawaii sell taro pie...and they still use the fryer for the delicious little f*ckers. Soooo tasty.


Does McDonald's still sell saimin?  I remember it used to come in the little styrofoam bowl...

McDonald's in Japan has way more variety than McDonald's in the US.  I wish the US McDonald's had the fries with spice that you shake around in the little bag (obviously you could DIY if you brought some spices with you I guess, but...)

It's not just fast food, either.  The variety of KitKat available in Japan just boggles the mind, none of them available in the US despite the fact that it's originally American!

rynthetyn: I know the type. The backpacker who never leaves the backpacker district, but thinks they're a "traveler" when all they do is hang out with other "travelers" talking about how deep they are, when the only locals they get to know are the people working at the front desk of their hostel.


So they'd rather hang out in the hostel, party, and have lots of sex with other young upper middle class travelers from around the world than hang out in some local slum. They can always go back when they get older. They'll be able to better appreciate it then anyway. Meanwhile, there are only so many chances in life to be the meat in a sex sandwich involving siblings from Portugal.

Accusing Americans of being ignorant and provincial because they don't eat at McDonald's when traveling overseas.

Funny stuff.

I think an "International McDonalds" would do very well. Maybe one or two in a few major cities.

Heck, it would be an interesting thing to have at Disney World, for that matter.

Dragonflew: We have that "Tower" sammich from KFC in Canada. My god, it's disgusting. There is so much salt in it that by the time I was halfway through it, I was gagging after every bite. I threw it out.


Thanks for the tip. I was pondering it, but no more.

Hands down, the weirdest thing I ever saw in fast food abroad was the corn sundae at KFC in Thailand.  Canned cream corn on top of vanilla soft serve ic cream.  It looked disgusting, there was no way I was going to eat something that looked like bodily waste.  However, they did have a fantastic dish of chicken strip things that was super hot, mixed with tomatoes and cilantro, with rice on the side.  That was fantastic!

The second weirdest thing I ever saw was the "McHommard" sandwich at a McD's in the middle of rural Quebec.  It looked like a seafood & mayo sandwich on a hoagie bun.

Homard is French for Lobster, and what you're describing sounds like a lobster roll, did it look like this?

Good call. I'd also accept a "McDonald's of The World" in Las Vegas that offered various samples - like the Coca Cola exhibits do (did?), although I've always wished that they also sold non-American Coke flavors.

i went to WORLD OF COKE (or world of coca-cola?) while spending time near atlanta. from my first-hand experiences, the european flavors in w.o.c.'s sampler room didn't taste like the flavors i actually had in europe. what a croc! perhaps it was simply the difference between hfcs and real sugar?

mcd in germany had, for limited times, a mcropolis burger...i cannot remember if the patty was beef or something else, but it had tzaziki sauce and the veggies/seasonings (maybe some feta?) you'd have on a gyro, and it was very yummy.

also during, i believe, the olympics 2000, they featured mcd sandwiches based on flavors from various countries/regions. i recall a mcafrica sandwich that was 2 small patties on a flatbread with special seasoning/sauce that was quite good. i don't remember any of the other flavors

when my parents came over, dad tried and love the mcfarmer (i think?) sandwich, which was a pork patty
