~*~McDonalds in Japan~*~ I’m lovin it :)

June 4, 2010 shastokes

While in Japan, I had the opportunity to try Mc. Donalds Japanese style! there were some foods on the menu that were the same here in the states, such as french fries, cheese burgers, apple pies, big macs and chicken nuggets.  One difference about Japans McDonalds is the portion size. A large drink was compared to a medium size here in the states. I’ve noticed that most of Japans portion sizes are a lot smaller than what I have seen at home. This could be a possible explanation why many Americans are so obese. Some other choices on the menus there were shrimp burgers (Ebi Fillet O), and Ebi-Chiki (shrimp nuggets).Also, while dinning in at the McDonalds in Osaka, there was a section for smoking. Usually, there are no smoking in restaurants like that in the US.  There was also wifi available in the McDonalds.  Every morning while staying in Osaka, I would stop at the McDonalds in the subway station for breakfast.  I would order a egg sausage Mc Muffin, hash brown and orange juice. With the McDonalds being in the subway station, you were able to use your pasmo/suica cards to pay for your meal.

    McDonalds did save me those mornings when we where in Osaka and I ordered the same Mcgriddle over and over and it taste just like it did at home. I didn’t get a chance to try to the funny looking stuff they had on the menu like the shrimp burger and the teriyaki burger but the Japanese students at Waseda said they were good.

      Actually having the same taste all over the world might benefit you when you traveling to many countries often and don’t feel like risking eating something you don’t know. It also could save your life sometime when you don’t know the language of the country you’re visiting since Big Mac are called Big Mac everywhere.

    I thought it was so random that McDonalds sold hot dogs!! I couldn’t image in a million years ordering a hot dog from a fast food restaurant. I only had McDonalds a couple times, I was trying not to have food, I could have in America but in my opinion it tasted the same. I do wish I would have tried a shrimp burger or something.

    I did try the shrimp burger at McDonald and it was really good. The only difficult thing for me was trying to read the menu. I cant read Katagana at all…Anyways you were right, the food taste exactly the same as US McDonald. Err.. I didnt notice Pasmo card was usable in McDonald….

    I had the Egg McMuffin a couple times and it was exactly like the ones at home. I also tried the Tatsuya Chicken sandwich, which had the same fixings as a McChicken, but the batter around the chicken was different. It was good though. What threw me off more about the hotdogs at the McDonalds was that they were for breakfast!

    Since we had the chance to go to McDonald’s so often I notice how expensive the menu was compared to the U.S. menu. For example, I can usually order a double cheeseburger and small fry for only $2.12 but in Japan that meal was almost 700Yen. Personally, I thought that Mosburger was better and cheaper!

    Yes I was shocked to that hot dogs were on the menu as well and even for breakfast like you said Meri!!! I looked online for McDonald’s around the world and to get a glimpse of the menu in different countries and many have a special type of sandwich of the meat that country is famous for! It is crazy how international McDonald’s has become!

    McDonald’s… One day that we were supposed to meet there, in Harajuku, they drove me crazy ! I asked many times: “Where is McDonald’s?” and they didn’t get me ! After a while, I asked a police officer, and he said: “You mean Maccodoonooldoo??”
    That was when I realized why they did not understand me; because of how Japanese pronounce its name.
    I had also never seen Ebi meal before. I tried it once and it was good.
