Refried beans, cheese, and pico de gallo served on an English muffin. Sold in Mexico.

Deluxe Breakfast

The McDonalds deluxe breakfast in Hawaii comes with spam, rice, eggs, and sausage patties.

McLobster Roll

Served seasonally in Canada.


  1. It can never be a deluxe breakfast unless it's served up with a portion of spam.

  2. That's the beauty of taste. It's all subjective.

  3. Well done, Frank!

    While most of those look absolutely disgusting, there were a few that looked yummy. Stuff it with cheese and deep fry it and I'll eat just about anything. I'm a health nut like that.

  4. McDonalds can't get diet coke right, imagine how they can fuck up a beer

  5. Oh, and "My Poutine" sounds completely wrong!

    I love McD's Diet Coke! Must be a Cali thing.

  6. Audra.. HAHAHAHAHA! why does it always taste like root beer?

  7. MMM, My Poutine craves a mega sausage all of a sudden...


  8. Should clarify, the McLobster is limited to only eastern Canada....if only it would migrate west....

  9. I'm so sure there's real lobster in that thing. Crayfish, if you're lucky.

  10. Watch out its McLobster migration season.

  11. i find it hard to believe they've got wasabi in norway.

  12. for the record: poutine is delicious. It's important that it be cheese curds and not just any old shredded cheese or something. But seriously: fries, gravy, and cheese? Delicious. Bottom line.

  13. HAHAHA @ Juicy

  14. Of course Wasabi makes sense in Norway. If everything is a variation of whitefish, a little green nuclear mouth explosion would be welcomed.

  15. I >heart< gallo pinto! I'd eat the poutine (cheese curds? uh, yeah!) and the bacon potato pie too.

    Damn, now I'm hungry.

    w/v = inglique = like engrish, only from french-speaking countries?

  16. "Mouth-watering porridge?" I don't think so.

    Some of those sounded pretty good, I think. Others, not so much. They need to be washed down with the funky Coca-Cola beverages they serve in different countries. We sampled them at the Coca-Cola Museum in Atlanta and some of them were VILE.

    Are you from Hawaii? Because here in the Aloha State, Spam plays a major role in McD's breakfast offerings, not just the deluxe breakfast. I think there's an Egg McMuffin with spam in it.

    Spam™ is a major food group here in Hawaii, yet life expectancy is approaching 90. Must be because all our pollution blows onto someone else. Also because we feast on the blood of tourists traveling alone, but you didn't hear that from me.

    The other great thing here is the haupia pie. Haupia is like sweet coconut jello or pudding. Yum.

    Okay, having lived in Seoul over a third of my life and having visited Japanese and Hong Kong McD's plenty of times, I might start to sound like I'm educating, but I'll risk it.

    #1, the McHotdog Mega Breakfast is a Japan-only thing, I think. We definitely don't have it in Korea. For the longest time we had no breakfast at all in Korea, even though they were 24 hour shops. Korea was like the only place without an Egg McMuffin, but we had egg burgers: a cheeseburger or hamburger with an egg in it as well. Blech.

    #2, the Sausage over noodles, I think is in Hong Kong, but I can't remember for sure. And for some reason, HK McD's served borsch. Not sure who their demographic was, except for Russian sailors on shore leave.

    #3, the Bacon Potato Pie, is a Japan-only thing, as far as I know, and it is DELICIOUS. I go out of my way to get those things. It's like a chicken pot pie sort of thing to go.

    The Cheese katsu is McD's version of a local Japanese thing: katsu is Japanese for "cuts" I think, as in pork cutlets.

    Korea McD's has the bulgogi burger. That's pretty good. If you like bulgogi. It's probably the most accessible Korean food to the American palate (no kimchi).

  18. kushibo, you left out one HI island McOffering that stands out in my memory. Taro Pie. A regular fruit pie with sickening purple pasty stuff inside. Having tasted taro root in other contexts, I declined to try it.

  19. Not very many of those looked like something I want to try. Your "crabby patty" comment made me laugh.

  20. I'll second Kushibo - the bacon potato pie is super yummy! Back when we lived in Japan they had this thing called a Teriyaki McBurger. It was a burger with teriyaki sauce and an egg on top, that thing was NASTY!

    Aside from the name - I could chow on that CroqueMcDo... yummy cheese :)

  21. My rule of thumb when traveling is eat pretty much whatever the locals are.

    You'll tend to be surprised by something you'd have never though to try back home.

    That said I'd be all over anything on this list with bacon in it, and the idea of getting a beer in McDonalds has appealed to me ever since I saw "Pulp Fiction".

    Word veri: triescar, If you'd wrap a car in bacon, Cam would most likely triescar.

  22. Hey, I'll voice up for the McSpaghetti (sold in the Philippines at "McDo" (pronounced MAC-dough)). It's a really different tasting sauce; you wouldn't think it'd work, but it's pretty decent.

    Plus McDo has a fried chicken combo, too. Not bad...

    It is funny to travel and see what U.S. washouts have surfaced & thrived in other cultures, where dining tastes tend towards their particular product line (i.e.: KFC, Shakey's, and Wendy's are huge in Manila).

  23. Hey, we have McLobster here in VT/NH! We also have Poutine, but that's because Quebec is just a stone's throw away.

    I would totally eat the Double Beef Prosperity Burger with a side of Shake Shake Fries and a McBanana Pie for dessert. Oh, and I'll have a McBeer with that.

    I'm not kidding.

  24. I've had the McLobster back home in Cape Breton - it's actually decent. Remember, it's regional, so lobster isn't as expensive as it is further inland. It's not spam cheap, but it is cheaper. Poutine is amazing too. Fries gravy & cheese. Are you kidding me? It's a heart attack in a bowl. What else could you want?

    Frank is right - spam with breakfast is vile to me, but they wouldn't keep it on the menu if it wasn't popular. Give the people what they like. : )

    WV - "burfi" how you feel after eating the dishes in this post

  25. I live in Japan, and trust me.. everything they have to offer is damn good. Check out the menu if you dare...

    Juicy Chicken Akatogarashi (like a chilli chicken burger) is one of my favorites.

  26. I believe this is the first and last time I'll ever see the words "mouthwatering" and "porridge" linked together.

    wv: septiess

    It's all the same once it reaches the septiess tank.

  27. HAHAHAHA McLobster migration!!!!!!!!!

  28. The McLobster is also served in parts of Maine.

    And Poutine is the BEST DAMNED food ever. Fries. With cheese. AND GRAVY. Even better with cheese, CURDS. EL YUM! (I'm French Canadian, so I KNOW that stuff, even when I've not been around it for a LONG time)

  29. kushibo - i often put spam (or prem) inside my onigiri. hmmmm that sounds like a euphemism for something else, but really... i love my spam!!!!

    i'd eat most of those menu items i think.

    p.s. yes, poutine is very big up here in canuckville.

  30. I dunno, most of these look a lot better than the american offerings.

  31. Is it safe to say that world wide, McDondald's offers the same menu everywhere, just with local additions? If that's so, it may be that the local stuff is made fresh, not with the highly processed, re-constituted stuff the rest of menu is.

    I've been in McDondald's in Oslo, Munich, Edinburgh (fancy a McHaggis?), London, even Rome, mostly to get a drink or use the loo...they all always seem to smell the same. They just opened a new one round the corner from us (seems like it went up over night) which is a McCafe. Haven't done the sniff test yet.

  32. We once had the McOZ here in Australia and it was damn nice. Beef patty with salad veg INCLUDING BEETROOT (which apparently was what made is so "Australian") But they got rid of it :(

  33. MMMmmmmm, banana pie? WANT!

  34. A couple of years ago, my coworker and I, while working hard, found the Flavor Twist cone on the Malaysia McDonald's menu. We're completely sad it hasn't been on the American Menu yet. They look awesome!!!!

  35. This post makes me want to travel abroad for exotic yummy goodness...

    On another note:


  36. Okay, it's taken me a while but I finally figured out where I saw the MSOTD before.

    It's Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde from the "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" movie.

  37. I can't even imagine what McDonald's passes for meat in countries with sub-USDA regulations.

  38. I'd eat all of these except for the Spam.

    I have standards, you know. Really low standards, but they are standards nonetheless.

    PS Cary baby why are you modding comments? None of my beeswax but did I miss something? Is someone being an asshole? You want me to rough them up? Cos you know I can take 'em.

  39. Having Lived in Japan for a year I also have to say the Bacon Potato pie is delish.
    I was sad to see the Salmon Burger didn't make the list tho.

  40. Comments have always been moderated on posts over two days old. That's where most spam pops up.

  41. I need to stop reading these things before lunch. Now I have to go to McD's and ask for my McPoutine with my McCBO. Follow that up with a few Bacon Potato pies. Mmm, pieroshke!

    Sad that the McPink didn't make the list.
