Around the World: The Biggest McMenu, Part Nine

Here we are! Part nine of the Biggest McMenu, highlighting all the various "Mc-" menu items from McDonald's restaurants all around the globe. It's also the last part since I'm all out of "Mc-" items.

In Malaysia, you can go to McDonald's and get a local dish, the Bubur Ayam McD, a rice porridge with chicken, green onions, sliced ginger, fried shallots, and diced chilies. It's only about $1.44 a bowl.

We know that France has a McFish (with ketchup for the kids) but so does Brazil:

Whereas the French version is a variation of the Filet-O-Fish, the Brazilian version is the Filet-O-Fish.

In India, for the large vegetarian population, there's the McSpicy Paneer. It's basically a spicy, breaded, deep-fried cheese patty. To balance the heat, they top it with a creamy sauce and lettuce on a sesame seed bun.

There's also the McVeggie in India. Similarly to the McSpicy Paneer, it is also breaded and deep-fried, but the filling is a blend of bread, potato, peas, carrots, and Indian spices. It's complemented with mayo and lettuce on a sesame seed bun.

In Japan, there's the McPork which I actually had the opportunity to try a couple years back (pretty good!). It's a pork patty with a teriyaki-ish sauce and lettuce.

For the best of names, there's the McNifica which can be found in parts of Latin America as well as South America. It's fairly run-of-the-mill in construction though: beef patty, American cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, ketchup, mayo, and mustard.

In Spain, there's the McIberica, sourcing some local specialties, it sports a beef patty with Iberico ham, Manchego cheese, olive oil, lettuce, and tomato on a bakery-style bun. Looks fancy!

Finally, in South Africa and a couple of other countries, there's the burger best known here in the States for its mention in the movie Pulp Fiction: the McRoyale Deluxe... Because Quarter Pounder wouldn't make much sense in a country using the metric system. We would probably call it a Quarter Pounder Deluxe because basically, it is a Quarter Pounder with Cheese plus lettuce, tomato, and mayo which pretty much makes it a McNifica as well. Funny how the world works.

And so ends our Biggest McMenu adventure. I hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for reading!
