McDonald's products (international)


McDonald's products (international)

In order to satisfy the palate of the local population in a country, McDonald's offers a regionalized version of its menu. The result is McDonald's foods and meals not seen in other countries.

Africa

Morocco

The McArabia is sold in the Middle East. In 2005, the McSahara was briefly sold. In late 2006, the Chicken Mystic, Le Petit plaisirs (small pleasures), and 280 gram Recette Moutarde (Mustard burger) were all released.

Asia

Bahrain

In addition to the McArabia, McDonald's restaurants in Bahrain, beginning in March 2008, sell the McCrispy, a meal consisting of 1, 2, or 3 chicken strips served in a wrapper for a single strip or in a box for 2 or 3, with a choice of barbecue, sweet & sour, or garlic sauce. Like all Middle Eastern McDonald's restaurants, all food served in Bahraini outlets is halal.

China

In China, the Chicken McNuggets come with the traditional BBQ, Sweet & Sour, and Honey Mustard sauces, but there's also a chili garlic sauce (very popular in China).In China there are specific McDonald's restaurants and counters for ice cream, beverages, and desserts (otherwise rare in China). They also include crispy chicken wings on their menu which comes in 2, 4, and 6 pieces. There is also a seasonal Chinese New Year meal available, including Grilled Chicken Burger, curly fries, with a horoscope of the twelve zodiac animals of Chinese astrology and traditional "red" packets, or gift bags, for monetary gift giving as good luck. Note that all chicken burgers offered in Chinese McDonald's use thigh fillet (eg Premium Grilled Thigh Fillet Burger, Hot and Spicy Grilled Thigh Fillet Burger), rather than breast meat as per usual in occidental countries.

Hong Kong

McDonald's sells beef, chicken and pork burgers. Fried chicken wings and nuggets are also popular. In some restaurants, a separate counter sells ice cream and desserts to pedestrians. Soft Serve Ice Cream can be ordered with either red beans or green beans. Some restaurants have a section for the McCafé. Apart from the general menu, it also promotes some other foods seasonally or longer, like spicy french fries, the Shogun Burger (a Teriyaki pork patty with lettuce, served in a sesame seed bun), Grilled Chicken Burger, twisted macaroni breakfasts, salads, soups, pineapple or red bean sundae, pineapple pies, taco flatbreads with pork, beef or chicken, rice fan-tastic (a burger-like entree with rice patties in place of buns) and many others. Hong Kong hosts some of the world's busiest McDonald's with many operating round the clock. It also sells many toys or dolls, like Hello Kitty, Snoopy, and Disney figures in addition to set meals, which are very popular. In Chinese New Year, red packets ("lai see") are included in set meals. During the local Bun Festival, McDonald's restaurant on the island of Cheung Chau sells mushroom burgers instead of hamburgers and any other items which contains meat. In Kowloon Park, there is also a small counter named Snack Station selling ice cream, as well as a counter that sells McDonald's drinks in the swimming pool.

* Shake Shake Fries - flavored French fries. Shake Shake Fries are only available in certain periods of time throughout the year. There are several different flavors including seaweed, chargrill, French onion and salt and pepper.

India

Beef and pork products are not served to cater to Indian religious sensitivities. Chicken (only Halal) along with fish are the only meat products used.

In India, meat and vegetarian meals are prepared in separate areas of the restaurant because of religious laws about preparation of food for vegetarians and meat-eaters. Cooks preparing vegetarian dishes wear distinctive green aprons.

The Big Mac is replaced by the Maharaja Mac, which was originally made with lamb but is now made with chicken.

Mexican-style wraps for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians, such as the Paneer-Salsa wrap and the Chicken-Mexican wrap, and Curry pans in Shahi-Paneer and Chicken-Tikka variations are also offered.

Other items on the Indian Menu include chicken products such as the McChicken Burger and Chicken McGrill (a burger with a thin chicken patty, thin slices of both onions and tomatoes, filled with green chutney replacing the usual layer of mayonnaise).

The vegetarian burger menu consists of the McAloo Tikki Burger. It is a vegetable burger with potato, peas, and spices, tomato, onion, and a vegetable-tomato mayonnaise. [cite web|url=http://www.mcdonaldsindia.com/ourfood/veg/mcaloo_tikki.html|title=::Welcome to McDonald's India :: ]

McVeggie is another Vegetarian burger on the menu. It looks similar to the above McAloo Tikki Burger, but is made from mixed vegetables, peas, and spices, lettuce and veg mayonnaise (referred to as Veg Sauce in India).

Another new Menu Item added is the McSurprise burger. It contains a patty, onion, Italian mayonnaise.

There is also a Pizza McPuff, consisting of a puff pastry stuffed with peas, sliced cheese etc.

Indonesia

McDonald's sells fried chicken, which is by far more popular than the hamburgers. McRice is also offered, a small mound of steamed, plain rice. McSoup is a chicken flavored soup with bits of reconstituted croutons and vegetables. A bun containing a beef patty covered with satay sauce (spicy ground peanut sauce) is sold as Mc Sate.

Israel

McDonald's has Kosher branches only in Israel and Argentina. [cite web|url=http://www.frommers.com/destinations/buenosaires/D55904.html|title=Kosher McDonald's | Restaurant Review | Buenos Aires | Frommers.com ]
* McShawarma (shawarma served in flatbread) and McKebab (kebab served on flatbread) are specialty items on the Israeli menu.
* All meat served at McDonald's in Israel is kosher.
* Israel and Argentina are also the only places in the world where McDonald's burgers are barbecued on charcoal rather than fried.

Europe

Belgium

In 2004, a range of deli styled rolls were introduced. Branded as Deli Choices, it was the biggest project McDonald's Australia had undertaken since the launch of the breakfast menu in the late 1980's. Each restaurant had to be retro-fitted to accomodate new refridgeration and cooking equipment. Deli Choices initially launched with six varieties, including Chicken Caesar, Chicken Tandoori, Italian, Turkey & Cranberry, Veggie Delight and Bacon & Egg. Today the menu has been scaled down to four, and wholemeal bread is now an option.
