When it comes to fast-food, we all have our own guilty pleasures – like Doritos stuffed into our fourth meal. But these wacky menu items take the cake. From the crazy to the brilliant, this is what fast-food is like around the world.
Sorry America, looks like we’ll just have to want when it comes to these 15 creative fast-food items. Or, book a really expensive international flight.
1. Dunkin’ Donuts Pork and Spicy Beef Floss (China)
Whatever happened to classics like maple glazed or chocolate with sprinkles? I guess in China they take sweet and savory to heart, even with their donuts.
Referencing the dried coconut like texture, the meat “floss” comes in two umami flavors for your morning pick me up – Pork or Spicy Beef Floss.
2. KFC Zinger Double Down (Korea)
Okay, let’s get this straight. A beef patty, topped with bacon, smothered in BBQ and white pepper sauce, and then sandwiched between two chicken filets?
How is this not sold in every KFC chain?
3. Taco Bell Tikka Masala Burrito (India)
#Repost @sodelhi with @repostapp. ・・・ Monday just got exciting! Trying the all new Tikka Masala Burrito @tacobellindia #AmbienceMall #VasantKunj which is bursting with flavours! Doubletap if you like what you see! #Tacobell #foodie #Delhi #Tacobellindia #instafood #tikkamasalaburrito #instanews #nomnom #burrito #festive #NewDelhi #Delhifood #Delhilove #Delhilife #SoDelhi #recommends #gotry
If you think Taco Bell is all beef, cheese, and Doritos, then you’ve never heard of their international menu. I present the Tikka Masala burrito.
A twist on a classic Indian dish, this burrito is packed with grilled chicken, Mexican rice, onion, and a cilantro and Tandoori Mayo sauce. Indian-Mexican fusion fourth meal anyone?
4. Taco Bell Beefy Cheddar Cheetos Crunchwrap Slider (Canada)
In the US, we love the combination of Taco Bell and Doritos. In Canada, they opt for Cheetos, with a triple helping of cheese.
The Crunchwrap Slider comes loaded with ground beef, cheddar cheese, nacho cheese, and Crunchy Cheddar Jalapeño Cheetos.
5. Taco Bell Chocodilla (Central America, U.K., Spain)
A quesadilla oozing in melted chocolate chips?
Seriously, we need a fourth meal menu re-vamp.
6. Starbucks Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino (China and Asia Pacific)
Don’t knock it tell you try it I guess, because this bizarre combination of red beans and green tea are apparently a very popular item in Asian countries.
7. McDonald’s Chicken McDo & McSpaghetti (Philippines)
Apparently they don’t ask “Would you like a side of fries with that?” in the Philippines.
Italian meets southern in this bizarre McDonald’s combo of spaghetti and fried chicken.
8. McDonald’s Poutine (Canada)
Canadian McDonald’s take local cuisine to heart with these fries smothered in gravy and loaded with cheese curds.
9. McDonald’s Bubur Ayam McD (Malaysia)
What exactly is Bubur Ayam you ask? It’s a porridge consisting of chicken, ginger, onion, and shallots.
It must be good because Singapore has their own version called Chicken SingaPorridge.
10. McDonald’s McCurrywurst (Germany)
You can’t go to Germany and not try the brats – even when you hit up the local McDonald’s.
Pork bratwurst topped with tomato sauce and a side of curry powder, now that sounds intriguing.
11. McDonald’s Beer (Europe)
Okay, so finding beer on a menu is not a crazy thing. In fact it’s awesome.
But what’s crazy is the concept of munching on a Big Mac and washing it down with an ice cold beer. Sigh. We’ll catch on one day.
12. Pizza Hut Birizza (Sri Lanka)
Pizza Hut takes the cake for branching out against ordinary menu items. Take the Birizza for example.
Your choice of chicken or paneer rice topped with pizza dough and a side onion salad. Whatever happened to dough and cheese?
13. Pizza Hut Cheeseburger Crust Pizza (Middle East)
What should we have for dinner tonight, pizza or burgers? Wait, I know, let’s have both!
Now you can have it all with the cheeseburger crust filled pizza – but only if you’re in the Middle East.
14. Pizza Hut Frankfurter BBQ (Indonesia)
German? Italian? American? Wait, hold on, Indonesian.
They just proved you truly can put anything on a pizza.
15. Burger King Kuro Pearl Burger (Japan)
Of all the crazy, bizarre, unusual fast-food items, the Kuro Pearl burger is by far the oddest.
Black cheese dyed with bamboo charcoal on top a patty with squid ink powdered onion garlic sauce sandwiched in between a matching bun. Japan, you’ve outdone yourself.
