Fast Food Adapted Around The World

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

In countries outside the USA with a cafe culture already highly developed, McDonalds adapts their McCafe brand. In Thailand where I live, that means local menu selections are integrated into the menu. In Brazil, it means Pão De Queijo their famous cheesy bread is featured; in Montreal it is poutine (a mixture of gravy and cheese curds); in France it is an oblong hamburger in a baguette McBaguette with Elemental cheese and may be accompanied by a McBeer; In Italy Mozzarillo Burger Mozarella cheese accompanied by basil and tomato mayonnaise on forcaccia bread; United Arab Emirate branches of Pizza Hut offers a pizza with the edge of the crust stuffed with mini-cheeseburgers and a topping of cheeseburgers, Thousand Island dressing, cheese, lettuce, and tomato. There is nothing I can add after this last abomination from the Emirates, as that is about as unappetizing as it gets, as far as I am concerned.
