Questionable McDonalds Burgers

The Big Mac might be the most famous sandwich in the history of the world. 

McDonald's hasn't become a massive, multinational corporation solely by delivering morsels of the American diet to foreign countries; the company also caters to local taste by releasing all kinds of variants on their menu items that are region-specific and even religion-specific.

Sadly, the old adage that no two countries with McDonald's have ever fought a war is no longer true, but the fast-food chain's international presence still remains impressive

1. Chicken Maharaja Mac

In India, where much of the population is Hindu and therefore abstains from eating beef, McDonald's has an equivalent of the Big Mac, the Chicken Maharaja Mac. Much like the Big Mac (which was originally known as "The Aristocrat"), the Maharaja Mac features three pieces of bun, two patties, and tons of toppings, including habanero sauce and jalapenos.

2. McKroket

The McKroket is a specialty served by McDonald's in the Netherlands and Belgium, made up of a Kroket and a mustard sauce wrapped up in a bun. What's a "Kroket" in this instance? It's just the Dutch spelling of what is otherwise as a "Croquette" in most of the rest of the world.

3. Gratin Croquette Burger

The Gratin Croquette burger can only be found in Japan, according to the Australian website Japan Australia. The fried croquette is a combination of shrimp and cheesy, creamy macaroni atop a bed of lettuce and croquette sauce. This is one that definitely sounds a little more exotic than it is.

4. EBI Filet-O

The EBI Filet-O burger is available in Japan for anyone who doesn't want to enjoy the incredible food that is available at the yakitori stands that are ubiquitous across the nation. This McDonald's creation is a patty made up of shrimp tails, which are then breaded and fried all together. The idea isn't bad, per se, though asking McDonald's to get it right is a big challenge.

5. McBifana

The McBifana is one of two dishes that can only be found at McDonald's locations in Portugal, the other being Caldo Verde, which is a shredded kale soup. Catering to the local crowd with a McDonald's take on the traditional stewed pork sandwich known as a "bifana" and its ciabatta-like bread fits into McDonald's oeuvre perfectly.

6. Black and White Burgers

McDonald's in China serves this fun-looking duo, the Black and White Burgers. On the left is a black bun with white sesame seeds, which comes with onions and a black pepper sauce. On the right is a white bun with black sesame seeds, which comes with lettuce and a sweet and spicy sauce.

7. Samurai Pork Burger


Buying a beef hamburger from McDonald's is a risky enough proposition, but for anyone who trusts the fast-food chain to serve pork, the Samurai Pork Burger is available in Thailand. The ground pork is slathered in teriyaki sauce, then topped with lettuce, tomato, onions, and mayonnaise. The resultant mush doesn't look too appealing in this photo, though.
