McDonald’s Hong Kong Does Square Patties & Potato Wedges for World Cup

First it was fancy fry boxes. Then it was country-inspired sandwiches. Now McDonald’s is continuing the World Cup-themed cavalcade in Hong Kong, with a limited time menu that includes three kinds of chicken wings, potato wedges, orange fruit punch, and a four-patty spicy beef cheeseburger.

Mickey D’s tribute to Spain, the Spicy Beef Burger comes topped with cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, and the aforementioned square slices of beef, though we’re not sure what any of it has to do with Spain. The spice is courtesy of Malagueta chili sauce, which Brand Eating reports is actually more common in Brazilian cuisine than Spanish.

What is exciting, though, regardless of origin, are the other limited-time offerings. Not only does the McWings Platter includes flavors like Pickled Chili and Crispy Garlic, but the orange punch is practically a nonalcoholic sangria, and the fried potatoes come in wedge form instead of our boring old French julienne. Sure they’re still just potatoes, but the fact that we can’t get them here is still enough to make me go, “WANT.”
