Out with the Hokkaido Salmon Burger and in with the Samurai Double Beef Burger and the Ninja Chicken Burger. With these Japan-related promotions McDonald’s Singapore has been offering, does it make you wonder – what do they have in McDonald’s over in Japan? Let’s take a look together, shall we?
Here are 5 items from McDonald’s Japan we wish were available in Singapore.
This beautiful, thicc (thick)burger has two beef patties in it drizzled in garlic pepper sauce. That sauce looks like it would go extremely well with some crunchy lettuce, onion slices and tomatoes. We wonder if it’s anything like Samurai Double Beef Burger. Hmm.
The Garlic Pepper Beef Burger is priced at ¥490, which is about $6.30.
Not satisfied with just plain ol’ seaweed, McDonald’s Japan is currently selling their fries with sachets of cheeseburger-flavoured seasoning for a limited time. Intriguing! Will there also be the taste of chopped onions and dill pickles? Will it be anything like Pringles’ New York style chips, which are also cheeseburger-flavoured?
The Medium Shaker Fries will set you back ¥310, or about $4.00.
This little slice of fried gold looks a lot like the MOS Chicken from MOS Burger, except maybe a little more uniform in shape? It’s also available in other flavours, such as cheddar cheese and red pepper. Just pour in the seasoning and shake!
All versions of Shaka-Chicki are priced at ¥150 each, or about $2.00.
In Singapore, we have the Caramel Macchiato at our McCafés. In Japan, they go next level by offering up the Crème Brûlée Latte. Which means that if you order the Crème Brûlée Latte in Japan, you’ll get the deliciousness of the caramel with the added bonus of some custard cream. Umm, yes please.
A medium Crème Brûlée Latte would cost you ¥390, or about $5.00.
In Singapore, we’ve had several variations on the evergreen Apple Pie, including the most recent Coconut Pie and the Taro Pie back in 2013. In Japan, they currently have a promotion involving a triangular pastry pie filled either with Tiramisu or good ol’ chocolate for ¥150, or $2.
By the way, if you’re reading this article, chances are you eat at McDonald’s. So mark your calendar for 19 November because awesome things are on the horizon!
In just 2 days, you’ll be able to taste the Samurai Double Beef Burger and Ninja Chicken Burger at McDonald’s. The Samurai Double Beef Burger, for the uninitiated, contains two slices of quarter-pounder beef patties slathered in teriyaki and mayonnaise sauce served with lettuce. The Ninja Chicken Burger, which is a new item, features a juicy chicken patty bathed in Japanese tartar sauce and sweet Nanban sauce served with white cabbage.
The crowd-pleasing Seaweed Shaker Fries will also return. There’ll also be a new dessert flavour: Coffee Milk Tea. If you love coffee, you’ll be able to choose between having a coffee milk tea Sundae, ice cream or McFlurry.
