Neat! McDonald's Thailand Offers Japanese-Style Bentos

Out in Thailand, McDonald's is offering a limited-time promotion with what looks to be a Japanese-style bento.

Calling it "Spicy Chicken Teriyaki Rice," the meal comes in a plastic compartmentalized tray (think frozen dinner) with slices of crispy fried spicy chicken topped with teriyaki sauce, steamed rice, and a fresh salad. The price comes out to about 69 Thai baht or about $2.17.

I wouldn't mind seeing some international flair in a limited-time promotion here in the U.S. McDonald's seems to do it quite a bit in other countries. Of course if they did the same here in the U.S., I think the meal might be closer to $4 or $5.
