McDonald’s is everywhere. The company’s logo is the most recognized symbol in the world, likely due to the fact that there are locations in over 120 countries. McDonald’s is a fast-food institution, and even if you’re not on the fast-food bandwagon, you can’t help but recognize the Golden Arches’ vast popularity.
Some consider eating at McDonald’s while abroad a smack in the face to local cuisine. At the same time, McDonald’s international menus do a pretty good job of adjusting their traditional American items to accommodate local diners—at the very least, the food nods in the direction of local flavors, albeit in their most dumbed-down form. From Bubblegum Squash McFlurries to Mashed Potato Burgers, international McDonald’s menu items are full of surprises.
