The Croque McDo And Other McDonald’s Meals Not Found In The U.S.

My kids have never eaten a meal at McDonald’s (though it’s possible we got fries there once when the traffic was backed up for hours crossing the Sagamore Bridge).


But things might be different if the Ebi Filet-O shrimp burger sold at McDonald’s in Japan or the Croque McDo (grilled ham and swiss on toast) sold in France were on the menu.

In this enlightening Foreign Policy piece , discover “The Best McDonald’s Meal You Won’t Find In The U.S,” including the Thai Samurai Pork Burger, the Turkish Kofteburger (a turkey kebab with mint and parsley) and the McMollete, a Mexican-style breakfast dish with refried beans, cheese, and pico de gallo (Mexican salsa) on a muffin. Of course, what the story’s really about is how McDonald’s has so cunningly weathered the Great Recession and remains such a dominant player in the global food arena.
