With the introduction of McDonald’s new Sriracha Big Mac, as well as various Big Mac sizes coming to United States restaurant locations, it’s going to be a busy year for the fast food chain.
Through the years, we’ve come across a few McDonald’s burgers from around the world that make us regret not traveling more. These burgers feature regional ingredients, outrageous additions, and drool-worthy portions.
Check them out!
McDonald’s Katsu Cheese Burger
McDonald’s Japan added a new burger that features a pork katsu cutlet. The breaded, deep-fried piece of pork is stuffed with cheese. Upon emersion in the deep-fryer, the crust is crisp and golden brown and the cheese is oozing and melted.
The patty itself boasts so many different textures that this burger instantly became a must-try here at the office.
Who loves Nutella?
If you can’t get enough of the hazelnut spread, McDonald’s locations in Italy are slinging this sweet new “burger” you can sink your teeth into. Think of it more as a nutty pastry that happens to look like a burger. It’s even packaged in a box similar to the Big Mac.
If there’s one item that’s sure to spread holiday joy on this list, it’s the Nutella Burger.
Sure, the US will soon be introduced to the Grand Mac. However, Japan already cornered the market on giant Big Macs with their variant: The Giga Mac.
The kaiju of McDonald’s burgers features four beef patties, cheese, lettuce and Big Mac sauce, served on a sesame bun.
McDonald’s locations in China introduced a burger that featured red pork sausage a few years ago. Another burger, a grilled chicken sandwich boasting a fried shrimp sticks accompanied it during its initial launch.
Over here in the US, our eyes popped at the unique ingredients stacked in these two burgers.
Our friends at 7 Deadly took a trip out to France a while back and reported back this delicious Fromage Pan sandwich. This wonder of the world featured a patty that’s just made up of breaded cheese.
We expect nothing less from a country so prominent in cheese culture. Beautiful.
Mushroom Dijon Burger
Some burgers don’t have to have crazy meats and coloring to make us salivate. All they need are the right combination of ingredients that simply compliment each other.
Take this Brazilian Signature burger. The fat sandwich features double meat patties, bacon, mushrooms, and dijon grain mustard.
Quiet down, stomach.
Fan of meaty burgers?
Another sandwich from McDonald’s locations in China introduced a double-pattied burger that was then topped with two plump sausages. The sausages were drizzled with mustard and served on a brioche bun. No other ingredients. Just meat and bread.
Because there’s nothing more appetizing than grey food, McDonald’s China dropped this pork patty burger with iceberg lettuce and bacon.
