Unique McDonald’s meals from around the world

Unique McDonald’s meals from around the world

Entire books have been written on the global phenomenon that is McDonald’s. 

Maharaja Mac Meal, India

McDonald’s replaced the Big Mac's two all-beef patties with chicken to create the Maharaja Mac in order to cater to Indians who consider cows sacred. Although you can get the Maharaja Mac with fries and a Coke, they also offer sides like the Vegetable Pizza McPuff that are unique to India.  

McArabia Pita, Middle East

The McArabia Pita comes with chicken or beef patties, onions, and traditional tahini sauce on a pita bread sandwich. Don’t expect any special sides — outlets in the Middle East keep to the American classic standard with french fries and a Coke.

Samurai Pork Burger, Thailand

The Samurai Pork Burger from Thailand is a pork patty that comes with teriyaki sauce, lettuce, tomato, onions, and mayo. Forget apple pie for dessert — visitors to McDonald’s in Thailand can try corn and pineapple pies, which you won’t find here in the U.S.

McBaguette, France

French McDonald’s are unique for more reasons than just their McBaguette combo option, a sandwich that comes with a choice of breaded chicken, ham and cheese, or hamburger and is topped with two hashbrowns. The country's McDonald’s are known for being some of the most sophisticated in the world, and are designed like French sidewalk cafés. If you go to a McDonald’s in France, expect to find macarons and crêpes as well as the McBaguette and Coke combo.

The McFiesta Burger, Argentina

The McFiesta Burger is essentially just a regular McDonald’s quarter pounder, but with mayonnaise instead of ketchup. Sides and desserts are standard here, too, with french fries and Coca-Cola, but dessert gets a little fancier with the option of an Oreo cone to hold your ice cream.
