Katsu Curry McNuggets Are Coming To McDonald’s UK

As if we needed any more proof that America hardly ever gets the cool releases in fast food, McDonald’s in the UK will be debuting Katsu Curry Chicken McNuggets on December 30.

Featuring McNuggets coated in crispy panko breadcrumbs and served with a side of curry dip, this iteration is an eyeopener in terms of the potential McNuggets have to be served in different flavors and types. Patrons can try a box of the Japanese-inspired nuggets for £3.59 for six, £4.09 for nine, or 20 pieces for £5.99.

However, they have to act quickly, as these McNuggets are a limited-edition and will only be available for a six week window. Now if the US can even get a sniff of any creative fast food item such as this, then things can get exciting again in that space.

IKEA Japan Serves Up New Meatless Katsu Curry

When I think of IKEA, my first thought lands on those juicy Swedish Meatballs swimming in rich gravy. The furniture itself, an afterthought. Not too long ago, I discovered that my local IKEA offered a vegan alternative to those meatballs, and they were phenomenal. 

That’s why it doesn’t come as a surprise that the furniture company is embracing plant-based alternatives even across the globe. 

IKEA locations in Japan have now released a brand new plant-based katsu curry, reports SoraNews 24

Dubbed “Born of the Field” Plant Katsu Curry, guests will find not a single morsel of meat within the curry dish. The katsu is made from a mix of soybean and other plant-based ingredients. It’s topped off with a creamy vegetable curry and served with a side of rice. 

The new menu item’s idea was to create something more sustainable and have a less environmental impact than regular meat. If IKEA Japan’s foot traffic is anything like the US’, it can definitely go through a lot of meat. 

IKEA Japan has also added an entire menu designed around a plant-based motif. This includes rolled cabbage, plant kebab salad, veggie wraps, vegan cheese dogs, and plant-based chocolate mousse. 

Customers can find the new plan-based Katsu Curry at all IKEA Japan locations across the country.
