Surprisingly (to us Americans, maybe), McDonalds all over the world has different menus to cater themselves to the locals. Even in Hawaii, you’ll find things like ramen, Portuguese Sausage / Eggs / Rice Plates, and taro pies. Japanese McDonalds, of course has it’s own quirks, not to mention special choices on the menu.

Besides the food, Japanese McDonalds has some other differences as well. Ronald McDonald has a different name: Donald (ドナルド). McDonalds Restaurants are generally a lot cleaner, staff seems to be a little friendlier, and everything is a little more upscale (at least as upscale as McDonalds can be). The drinks and fries are considerably smaller, though the hamburgers are only a little smaller. They have most of the staple McDonald choices on the menu, but I went through and found all the ones you might not see in your country of origin. Let’s start with breakfast!

Breakfast Menu (朝マック)

Feel free to click on the image above to get a closer view, but we’ll be getting into more detail on some of these below. I’ve provided a literal translation to all of them, written right above each picture. A few things strike me as a little odd, though. Why is the Chicken Caesar Wrap and the Fillet-o Fish on the breakfast menu? Japanese love eating weird things (at least by our standards) for breakfast. So if you study abroad, be prepared to eat a lot of lunchy-dinnery things in the morning!

Bacon Lettuce Egg Wrap

This sounds ridiculously good. I thought I loved Sausage and Egg McMuffins, but now I have something new to look forward to. Thank goodness Japan’s time difference might help me wake up early enough to grab one of these, while I’m still in jet lag mode.

The Mega Muffin

I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard about the MegaMac (keep reading), but this is it’s monstrous morning brother, the Mega Muffin. From the looks of it, the Mega Muffin consists of two sausage patties, a slice of cheese, an egg, some bacon, and some ketchup. Seriously? Well, I suppose it won’t stop me from trying one the first chance I get.

Chicken Caesar Wrap

This menu item isn’t strange all on it’s own. The thing that’s strange is that it’s found on the morning menu. Though, I gotta say, I probably wouldn’t mind. This is a good segue to…

The Lunch / Dinner Menu

Not a whole lot that’s terribly interesting here. You’ll notice that many of these items are found on your local McDonalds menu. Here’s the things that are probably unique:

MegaMac

If you live in Hawaii, you may be one of the lucky Americans to come across one of these…uh…things? Just double the amount of meat you would normally find in a Big Mac, close your eyes, tap your ruby shoes together, and you’ll get one of these. When I tried it, I could barely fit it in my mouth, that’s how ridiculous it is. Why Japan would have a hamburger bigger than any of its counterparts in America is beyond me. I suppose it makes up for the generally smaller portions everywhere else.

Shrimp Thousand-Island Wrap

Normally I am a big fan of some Thousand Island salad dressing… but that’s usually just on my salad. I can’t wrap my mind around this one, though I love the shrimp (sounds like a perfect wrap). This is very similar to their Shrimp Burger, which we’ll take a look at right now.

Shrimp Fillet-O

If you’ve never had a shrimp burger, do so as soon as you can. It is (unsurprisingly) one of the best fast-food burgers you’ll ever have. The Japanese Ebi Fillet might even rival an In-n-Out burger, though that might be pushing things a little bit.

Croquette Burger

One of my favorite aspects of Japan is the constant easy access to one of my favorite foods: Croquettes (コロッケ). If you can put them in a hamburger, then more power to ya, I say. Though, I would probably just take them out from the bun and eat them separately. But then again I’m not twelve years old.

McPork

Erin says these exist from time to time in the US, so I won’t talk about them too much. I thought that maybe it was due to the ban of beef imports from a couple years back, but maybe it’s just a plain old normal hamburger :(

Teriyaki McBurger

I’m a sucker when it comes to Teriyaki Burgers, and this is no exception. My mouth is watering.

Shaka Shaka Chicken

These are like little fried chickens in a bag. Then, you get this seasoning mix that you pour into the bag, seal, and shake. Now, all of a sudden you have some seasoned chicken, the McDonalds employees didn’t have to do the seasoning part for you, and now everyone’s happy! Here’s a video of someone doing it.

[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qthR4QyxTk0]

Bacon Potato Pie

I’m not too keen on sweet deserts. I’ve always been one for eating salty things after eating salty foods, you know, to clear the pallet. This piece of work seems to fall within that category, and sounds wonderful. Screw you Apple Pie. Bacon Potato pie is in town.

Now, we’ve only gone over the different food options there were. There’s also some different drinks you can get your hands on, to wash the greasy goodness down.

Available Drinks

You’ll notice all sorts of different things (and a lot of familiar ones). One of my favorite things about Japan is the availability of Ginger Ale. You definitely don’t see it very often in American fast food restaurants, but in Japan, it’s pretty common! Other interesting drinks include tea, Grape Fanta (Fanta is fairly big in Japan), and Qoo (I have no idea how to explain Qoo, except for that their apple juice is amazing).

So What Will You Eat?

There’s all sorts of great / interesting things there, but if you could only choose one, what would it be? I think I would go with the Mega Muffin, just because my current American favorite is the smaller version of that one, and more is always better, right?

  • http://www.edufire.com/arky Arky

    Some of those look surprisingly tasty despite my disdane for McDonalds… D:

  • binxy

    Teriyaki Mac Burger looks good. YUM YUM!

  • kataomi

    that look all tasty things !!!!! *_* I definetly want to try the Shrimp Fillet-O lol !!

  • http://www.feitclub.com feitclub

    Not a fan of the Mega Mac. It's hard enough to hold together a regular Big Mac without it collapsing into a pile of lettuce and special sauce, so the Mega Mac is an exercise in futility. Plus, as you noted, it's too big to fit in ANY human mouth.

    The Mega Muffin, on the other hand, works. Beautifully, I might add. I think it's because there's no extra layer of bread in the middle.

  • Kitam

    Nice stuff.. been awhile since i been here.
    you should do a contest where you give away a megamac.. tat should be an exciting cholesterol rollercoaster to remember.

  • alicia

    So no nuggets, or chicken by itself (other than that shaking thing)?

  • fredydb327

    Hahaha.
    McGriddle is good.
    Chicken Fillet thing is good.
    Didn't try a mega mac thing… I was going to but didn't.
    Shaka Shaka chicken is the way to go.
    Fanta is awesome! I accidentally bought some weird gummy fanta in a convenience store thinking it was just the drink. It was still good though. It was like, jello in a can.
    I don't really like getting coffee, cause I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but I bought one of the iced coffee drinks there, thinking it was all mixed already, but it was black and I got barely any sugar or “gum syrup?”.

  • http://www.vietamins.com Viet

    The Mega Mac and the Mega Muffin can be ordered in the US. Like most major fast food establishments, McDonalds will accept custom orders as long as they have the food material.

    The US equivalent for the McPork sandwich is the McRib, which has a huge cult following.

  • Tonio

    I'd definitely go for the Shaka chicken and the Potato pie for a quick meal.

  • WOTDsctoo

    Koichiben flashbacks anyone? :O

    >The Japanese Ebi Fillet might even rival an In-n-Out burger, though that might be pushing things a little bit.
    BLASPHEMY!
    … :P

    I think I might try the shaka shaka chicken. Looks fun. :)

  • TicTaek

    The Shaka Shaka Chicken and the Teriyaki MacBurger look wicked awesome. Unfortunately for me, I made a bet with a friend that I wouldn't eat McDonald's again till I went back to France and had a Royal avec fromage (with cheese). I plan on going to Japan first so it looks like I might have to break my bet which will have been ongoing for 3 years by the time September '09 rolls around. Quite the dilemma, I know.

  • http://www.tofugu.com koichi

    I love the cinnamon melts too – but I only talked about things that are only available in Japan (or things that I thought were only available in Japan). I eat cinnamon melts all the time here!

  • http://www.tofugu.com koichi

    True that. Sadly, no, they don't look like the images above in real life :(

  • http://www.tofugu.com koichi

    Aww, megamac is an experience to have! Next time, you gotta try it!

  • http://www.tofugu.com koichi

    Ooh, never thought about that. Good point!

  • fredydb327

    I want to go to Japan again. :)Like this summer…. alone or with friends,
    haha.

  • kwyjibo

    I must say, the shrimp burger was pretty good, if not better than a lot of the things served here in the U.S.

  • Popkornage

    Hmmm…. Ginger Ale isn't usually available in US fast food restaurants? It's almost always inside Canadian fast food restaurants.
    The Teriyaki burger looks cool, and I'd like to have a contest with one of my friends to see who could eat a mega mac the fastest :)

  • Jeshii

    I miss the Tsukimi Burger…

  • Kitam

    ~runs to McDonalds~

  • http://caitlinomara.com Caitlin

    The bacon lettuce burger is pretty gross. It's more like undercooked bacon and soggy lettuce. :( I was hoping for a bacon cheeseburger-type thing.

    I used to drink Qoo but after the kids at the schools did a study on the amount of sugar in drinks, I've stopped. I don't remember exactly but it was up there in the soda range. Back to green tea for me.

  • http://www.vietamins.com Viet

    I remember reading that bacon in Japan is generally served soggy and undercooked. So gross.

  • http://sexy-kawaii.blogspot.com Lisa

    I can't believe I missed the Croquette burger…and the potato bacon pie!!!
    The shaka shaka chicken is a definite win though – totally delicious and only 100 yen!
    When I was tight on cash in Osaka my lunch would be a two course meal at 300 yen….

  • Shane

    I work at a McDonalds. Let me tell you, when we're making the actual burger it looks just like on the posters and advertisements. I think it's the wraps or something,because as soon as it's wrapped/unwrapped the burger looks like crap.

    That's always puzzled me.

    If you want something to taste as good as possible, ask for it to be made with fresh meat. You'll have to wait 5-10 minutes for it to cook, and depending on what it is you might need to let it cool down before taking a bite..but it makes things taste a whole lot better :)

  • Irene

    I ate my first cinnamon melts 1 week ago. Love them!!!
    in Holland they don't have them so I should eat them as much as possible while I'm in Japan then XD

  • http://myspace.com/805x Sam watashi wa

    I know I've been told say nothing if you don't have something good to say
    but, I'm not a big fan of mcD's.(well in america)
    but one thing that did catch my eye was the Teriyaki Mcburger and the Shrimp Thousand-Island Wrap :d
    once i go back to Japan i would have to step in and taste those!
    ps the shaka shaka chicken is looking mighty tasty haha

  • Alexis olson

    I usually only eat Mickey-D's while traveling since it is so bad for you, but I will admit it is delicious! It looks like Japan gets more creative with the meat, might have to try it when I'm down there, looks yummy :D

  • MidgarZolom

    Wow, this just made me so hungry. Fortunately, I live in an apartment complex that is right behind a McDonalds, so I can walk there in 1 minute. Unfortunately, half of the things I want to eat — the things on the Japanese menu — won't be there.

  • http://spacejay4000.livejournal.com/profile spacejay4000

    that all looks really good!! i really want to try the shrimp related foods cuz i have a soft spot for anything shrimp. though i'm surprised. i thought that there would be more fishy foods in the menu and that would serve alcohol like our friends in germany (please correct me if im wrong about germany). but i really wish our menus were as diverse and crazy as other countries cuz then it might entice me to actually eat there….ah well.

  • http://vinteb.tumblr.com/ vinteb

    Ahh, the Ebi Fillet-O looks so tasty. That'll be one of the first things to get when I get to Japan. Along with the Shaka Shaka Chicken, Teriyaki McBurger….. and some Qoo.
    haha =]

    maybe?

  • Maciel

    my mouth is watering, just looking at all these pictures and reading about them
    wow

  • Eevee

    The mega mac…. ugh. v.v
    As someone who works in fast food making sandwiches, that MegaMac must be a bitch to make, and nevermind that, wrap! T__T -shudder- And I thought the Triples from Wendys were hard to squish down!

    I have to admit, some of those burgers that have a more asian flavour to them do look a heck of a lot more appetizing compared to their all beef counterparts over here. I also noticed there's a lot less chicken on the menu, any particular reason why?

  • http://twitter.com/spellbunny Stacy

    When I was in Japan, I tried the Ebi Filet-o and the teriyaki burger..and to my dismay…. the shaka shaka chicken with the cheese packet. The chicken was the only thing I hated outright. The rest = LOVE!

  • Waaat!

    can you do that?

  • Zaywex

    On account that this is mostly digression, would you eat something with a chocolate flavored spread that used shrimp in it?

  • GameGod652

    Wow.

    I am a vegetarian but I have to admit the stuff on the menu looks good.

    I am thinking about becoming a pescitarian. That would make a visit to Japan much easier.

    HOLY SHIT. MEGAMAC IS FUCKIN’ HUGE. Y’know, maybe you can go to a McDonalds, and ask them to add another 2 patties to the normal Big Mac, and they might think “Oh, hey. Genius idea. Let’s do it.”

    I had a MegaMac (not sure if it was called that, but it was the same thing) several years ago in Mexico. I was still pretty young, probably about 10, but we had been swimming all day so I ate the whole thing.

    Interesting article, however the grammar-Nazi in me came out while reading it. When you want to change courses, you cleanse your “palate” not your pallet, which is the wooden base for a large, wrapped warehouse inventory.

    New Zealand has a Double Up Menu. Which means there is a MegaMac (Big Version of Big Mac), Double Fillet-O-Fish, Double Quarter Pounder and Double McChicken (all pretty self-explanatory). Not to mention the Olympic Menu at the moment too!

  • Scott Simonds

    Wish the mega mac would come to New Hampshire

  • kj

    We gotta get smoking out of Ronnys. They promote and cater to kids and then they let adults smoke like chimneys in their restaurants. Boo, hiss, fail !!! NO SMOKING NOW!

    People, are you stupid the Y.A had the mega Mac here in the U.S. about 17 years ago, but it was known as the “double big Mac

  • Amzar

    For muslim they must say no to McDonald in Japan. because they using the same item they use to handle pork and other food.

  • http://www.facebook.com/TrishtheStalker Laurie-Ann Pederson

    They don’t have Double Big Macs and Double Quarter Pounders in the states? I’m in Canada and the Mega Mac is the same thing as our Double Big Mac.

  • Donald Watley
