美国也找不到的,麦当劳10种最佳餐

作者:英语作文网   来源: www.en369.cn  

McDonald's has over 32,000 locations in 119 countries, and part of its international success is due to clever attempts to appeal to local customers by inventing food tailored to their tastes. From Paris to Delhi, here's a list of the top ten McDonald's meals Americans are missing out on.

 

India: BigSpicy Paneer Wrap
This fast food take on a common Indian street food is both spicy and vegetarian, making it a hit at the 271 McDonald's locations in India. Made with breaded paneer, a type of South Asian cheese, the BigSpicy Paneer Wrap is one of many vegetarian McDonald's innovations, which have been so successful that the chain plans to open two all-vegetarian locations in India next year.

 

Japan: Ebi Filet-O
Part of McDonald's Japan President Eikoh Harada's push to tailor food to Japanese taste, the Ebi Filet-O generated sales of 10 million in the first three months after its launch in October 2005. Made with breaded shrimp, this Japanese version of the classic Filet-O-Fish is modeled after the traditional Japanese dish of shrimp tempura and costs around $5.70 in Tokyo.

Turkey: Kofteburger
The Kofteburger is the McDonaldization of kofte, a type of Turkish kebab made with mint and parsley. So authentic that even the bun is sprinkled with parsley, the Kofteburger has been a hit with Turkish customers, and as one American visitor put it, "it's good but it doesn't taste like a burger...it tastes very...Turkish."

 

Thailand: Samurai Pork Burger
The name says it all. Featuring a pork patty marinated in Teriyaki sauce and smothered in peppers, the Samurai Pork burger is McDonald's attempt to put a Thai twist on the classic Big Mac, although the fast food giant may be a little off the geographical mark on this one. As one customer asks, "Why does it have a Japanese name when I'm in Thailand?"

Morocco: The McArabia
Priced at about $6.50, variations on the McArabia are available in countries across the Middle East. But Moroccans, especially, seem to have taken to this cumin-spiced flatbread beef sandwich. As one customer told the Global Post, "Honestly, it tastes Moroccan."

 

 

China: Prosperity Burger
A seasonal item only available around the Chinese New Year, the Prosperity Burger is made with beef smothered in black pepper sauce and onions. Customers in China and other East Asian countries can also enjoy local delicacies like taro pie, a variation of the classic apple version, as well as red bean sundaes.

France: Croque McDo
The country that immortalized the "Royale with Cheese" in the classic film Pulp Fiction has another local McDonald's creation to boast about. This take on the croque-monsieur, the classic French open-faced ham and cheese sandwich, is popular with Parisians and tourists alike. As one American visitor to France exclaimed about the breakfast sandwich in her blog: "this was no American Happy Meal."

 

Poland: The WiesMac
This quarter-pound beef patty, translated into English as the "Country Mac," is served with mustard and horseradish sauce on a sesame bun. "Everytime I eat WiesMac...I want to die," says one Polish customer in an online discussion, "But it is very tasty." Apparently, McDonald's guilt transcends differences of language and culture.

Mexico: McMollete
The Mexican version of a McMuffin minus the egg, this international McDonald's breakfast creation consists of refried beans, cheese, and pico de gallo, or Mexican salsa, atop a muffin. The dish takes its inspiration from molletes, a classic Mexican comfort food.

 

 

The Netherlands: McKroket
When McDonald's first moved to the Netherlands in the seventies, they tried to tempt Dutch customers with erwtensoep, or pea soup. Although that venture was unsuccessful, the McKroket has proven a much more profitable local item. A deep-fried patty of beef ragout on a bun, the McKroket costs roughly $2.50 and is McDonald's take on the traditional Dutch croquet
麦当劳在119个国家里有超过3.2万个店,它在国际上的成功一部分归功于通过创造针对当地消费者口味的食物去吸引他们的聪明尝试。从巴黎到德里,这里有一个美国人正在错失的最好的10种麦当劳食物的列表。

 

印度:超辛辣印度奶酪堡

这个快餐具有一般印度大街上的食物的特点,辛辣并且是素食的,这使得它在271个印度麦当劳店中都很火爆。超辛辣印度奶酪堡是使用一种南亚奶酪——涂面包屑后烹制的奶酪做成的,是麦当劳发明的许多素食中的一种,它太受欢迎了以至于此连锁店计划明年在印度开两个全素食店。

 

 日本:炸虾汉堡

由于麦当劳日本首席执行官原田英公的根据日本人口味定做食物的决心,甜虾鱼片堡自从2005年10月上市,刚开始的三个月就创造了1千万的销量。用涂面包屑后烹制的虾做成,经典鱼片堡的日本版是以传统的日本菜虾蛋彩画为模型的,在东京卖5.7美元左右。

 

 

 

土耳其:考夫特堡

考夫特堡是考夫特的麦当劳化,是一种用薄荷和香菜做的土耳其卡巴。考夫特堡非常真实,甚至小圆面包上都撒了香菜,它在土耳其顾客中轰动一时,就像一个美国参观者说的那样:“它很好但是尝起来并不像是一个汉堡...它尝起来很...土耳其。”

 

 

泰国:武士猪肉堡

名字透漏了它的一切信息。以一个浸泡在照烧酱中并覆盖着胡椒粉的猪肉饼为特点,武士猪肉堡是麦当劳将经典的巨无霸泰式改良的一个尝试,然而这个快餐巨头也许有一些脱离地理标志。就像一个顾客问到:为什么我在泰国但这个堡却有个日本名字?

 

 

摩洛哥:麦香阿拉伯特餐

价格大约在6.5美元左右,在中东国家麦香阿拉伯三明治的变化是可以的。但是尤其是摩洛哥人看似已经将它转变为用小茴香调味的小面包干牛肉三明治。就像一个顾客说的:“说实话,它充满摩洛哥的味道。”

 

 

中国:繁荣汉堡

繁荣汉堡是一个季节性的食物,只在中国元旦时提供,它由浸泡在黑胡椒酱汁和洋葱中的牛肉做成。中国以及其他东亚国家的顾客们也可以享受到当地的佳肴香芋派,这是经典苹果派的改制,同样红豆圣代也是改变制成的。

 

 

法国:火腿干酪面包

在经典电影 低俗小说 中使皇家汉堡名垂千古的法国有了另一个可以自夸的当地麦当劳的创造物。这个采用了火腿面包,经典的法国赤裸裸的火腿和奶酪三明治,在巴黎人同样在游客中都很受欢迎。就像一位去法国的美国人在她的博客中对早餐三明治呼喊:“没有能让美国人高兴的食物。”

 

波兰:维斯巨无霸

这个四之一磅的牛肉饼,翻译为英语是“最强巨无霸”,与芥末和辣根酱一起提供,在放有芝麻的面包上一起吃。“每次我吃维斯巨无霸...我都想死”,一个波兰的顾客在一个网上讨论中说:“但是它非常可口。”显然,吃麦当劳带来的罪恶感超越了语言和文化。

 

 

墨西哥:麦克松饼

墨西哥版的麦克松饼少了鸡蛋,这个国际化的麦当劳早餐食物是松饼配上炸过的豌豆,奶酪以及墨西哥莎莎酱。这个食物是从一种经典的墨西哥爽心美食松饼获得它的灵感的。

 

 

 

荷兰:麦克可罗卷

当麦当劳在七十年代第一次搬到荷兰时,他们尝试用豌豆汤或浓豌豆汤去吸引荷兰客户,然而这个尝试并不成功。麦克可罗卷被证明是一个更加有利可图的地方食物。麦克可罗卷是一个放在小圆面包上的油炸牛肉饼,卖大约2.5美元。
