What's in McDonald's New Worldwide Menu

McDonald's: The most bizarre products from in 5 different countries

Wherever you are in the world: there is very likely a McDonald’s there. Because there are only a few countries in which the fast food chain has so far not been able to gain a foothold.

When I've been traveling in the past few months, I've made it my business to go to McDonald’s in every country. So I've been to various McDonald’s restaurants in South Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand and Australia.

I tried a total of 24 different dishes that you can't buy in my home country, the USA. This included, for example, a chicken sandwich with mozzarella and a green McDip ice cream. That's how I found out how McDonald’s in every country includes local specialties in its menu and thus ensures that the restaurant never runs out of customers.

Here you can find out what I have eaten at McDonalds in five different countries.

  • Next, I went to a McDonald's in Ho Chi Minh City. Because there is super delicious street food on every street corner in Vietnam, it is not easy for fast food restaurants here. There are still a couple of McDonald's in town.

  • The garlic and soy sauce also does what it says on the tin. It is a delicious addition to the dish that you would probably not find in a McDonald's anywhere in the USA.

  • The chicken was what you are used to from fast food restaurants. And the egg was definitely a ready-made product like the McMuffin. However, the egg was less rubbery than you know from McDonald's eggs.

  • The matcha dip hardened quickly and became a tasty coating for the ice cream. The matcha added a full-bodied, almost earthy taste to the popular McDonald's soft ice cream.
