Kudos to you McDonalds. You pop up in locations all around the world but you don’t force American cuisine on anyone. You merely adapt your fast food menu to the tastes of the local culture. You even rebrand your restaurant in Australia to Macca’s. Great idea in theory, but sometimes it just doesn’t quite work out.
We’ve scoured the globe to find the most unique offerings from the famous fast food outlet that even the hardest men could find difficult to try. Some are just funny, others are almost painfully obvious, and a few we don’t actually know what they are. It’s McTime!

Maharaja MaC (India)
If you were freaked out by the capitalised ‘C’ in ‘MaC’, wait until you see the actual burger. America, shame on you, India has well and truly smashed your Big Mac with this. Two chicken patties that will “fulfil your burger dreams’.

McBurrito a la Mexicana (Mexico)
McAloo Tikki (India)
We have no idea what this is or what it contains, only that it had Australia written on the advert. We’re guessing that it’s bacon and grilled onions and some sort of yellow mayonnaise sauce… but then again, it’s Japan. This could be anything.
