McDonald’s Is Now Serving Bacon Mac & Grilled Cheese Sandwiches In Hong Kong

When you think about a sandwich stuffed with macaroni and cheese, the first word to probably come to your mind is “America.” Our country is known for popularizing the obscene and delicious creation, but when the fast food game decided to join the party, they took the talents of their mac & cheese sandwiches elsewhere.

Instead of dropping the sandwich here in the U.S., McDonald’s decided to launch their new Bacon Macaroni & Cheese sandwich in Hong Kong as one of two new “Toasties” in their lineup. It’s a simple but gluttonous meal, with a two-cheese mac & cheese and bacon crammed in between two slices of toasted bread.

The other new Toastie, in case you were wondering, is a riff off of the ever-popular Korean corn cheese side dish. Named the Corn & Cheese Champignon Toastie, it’s basically just corn, cheese, and champignon mushrooms inside of a grilled cheese sandwich.

While the corn cheese sandwich is definitely more catered to Asian consumers, that mac & cheese masterpiece screams “USA” as loud as a screeching bald eagle. If there was one sandwich you should definitely bring to the United States from overseas, McDonald’s, this would be it. We’re too obsessed with putting mac & cheese in our sandwiches to not fall in love with this instantly.

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.”
