McDonald's Japan

People in Japan often go to Mcdonald's to have a chat with friends or study for relatively long periods of time. The restaurants tend to be crowded with middle-school students playing video games, cards or studying. Of course, McDonald's Japan is very popular for a quick cheap-eat as well. You can get items that are pretty close to what you get everywhere else, but there are also some very unique, sometimes bold and bizarre items too. Some are reflective of the Japanese food culture and some are just wacky creations. Here's a presentation of the special menu items you get in Japan and some of the popular standards with the prices.

Special Japanese-Style Burgers

McDonald's incorporated some ingredients of the local food culture to make original burgers.

Grand Teriyaki Burger (¥390)

The Grand Teriyaki Burger is close to a standard burger with the standard beef patty and lettuce, but a sweet and salty teriyaki sauce added to the mix, which gives it a distinctive Japanese flavor. Teriyaki cooking uses traditional ingredients such as soy sauce and mirin (sweet sake).

Shrimp Filet (¥380)

Japanese love seafood so naturally you get burgers that reflect that local taste with a burger that contains a filet of deep fried shrimps. The filet is crispy on the outside and has a sweetish shrimpy taste that many people like. It has a light tomato and garlic cream sauce to complement the shrimp taste.

Egg And Cheese Burger (¥200)

The Standards

Big Mac (¥380)

The Super Cheap!

Japan has an unbelievably cheap value menu of just ¥100 to ¥150 including taxes. For the price, these items are not bad at all.

Premium Sankaku Choco Pie (¥150) LIMITED TIME OFFER

Retina retina 26756424 341576362995024 3664944917426848619 o
The inside of this sweet little treat is made of a mix of hazelnut paste and chocolate, and there is also chunks of hazelnut in it which gives a little crunchy texture. The rich and sweet cocoa outer crust is made with some almond powder, which gives it an extra crunchy texture. Available from January 22, 2018.

Apple Pie (¥100)

You can also get a small size "soft twist" ice cream cone.

Chicken Crisp (¥100)

Chicken Crisp is surprisingly good for the price. There is also a beef burger of the same size available and a cheese burger for 130 yen.

Shaka Chiki (¥150)

Shakachickenredpepper l http://www.mcdonalds.co.jp/menu/
This item is pretty interesting and unique to Japan. It's simply a piece of deep fried chicken served with either a hot pepper or cheese powder seasoning. The way to eat it is to put the powder inside the paper bag it comes in, shake it so that the powder covers the piece of fried chicken, then finally rip off the top part of the bag to eat it.

Limited Time Items (Often The Weirder, Or Most Unique Stuff)

Chicken Tatsuta

Chicken Tatsuta is a type of fried chicken burger with soy sauce and ginger that gives it a Japanese taste. To make it richer, there is a thick egg yolk slightly spicy creamy sauce that is added to it, and this time, there's 50 percent more of it than the previous special limited-time releases. The soft bun makes for a good texture combination with the chicken.

Chicken Taruta

Chicken Taruta is the same recipe as the one above but with the addition a thick layer of tartar filling.

Triple Cheeseburger (¥390)

Retina 26850841 340802026405791 6379716750677631933 o
This is the McDonald cheeseburger on steroids; three beef patties and three times the cheese. Just the reliable McDonalds cheeseburger taste in a size that should satisfy people with a big appetite.

Double Cheese Cheeseburger (¥390)

Retina 26841222 340802073072453 3532949500764542479 o
This burger uses two different types of cheese, white (mild flavor) and yellow (stronger flavor), and two beef patties. It has an intense savory and rich taste.

Spicy Cheeseburger (¥390)

Retina 26758647 340802023072458 2528493825960432693 o
They've also released a spicy version of the double cheeseburger. The hot sauce is not that spicy so you shouldn't have any problem with this one even if you don't like strong spicy foods. This one is probably the best of the series as the spiciness adds a different twist to the classic that is worth trying.

Spicy Fries (+¥30 with set) CURRENTLY AVAILABLE!

Retina 26685493 340802029739124 4083043555160325474 o
For a limited time, you can also have these spicy fries for an additional ¥30 if you take them as a set. The set price for the three burgers above is ¥690.

Chocolate Potato Chips

McDonald's Japan sometimes surprises everyone with bizarre limited time offer items such as these Halloween-special chocolate fried potatoes. People either hated or loved them.

Pikachu Choco-Bana Fleury

The Pikachu Choco-Bana Mc Fleury (290 yen) was available for a limited time during the summer of 2017. Some items such as this one appear seasonally and may or may not reappear the following year.

Tuskimi Burger

Retina retina 21366795 291251834694144 719429840639155898 o
You can be sure this one will reappear on the menu every year in the fall. Its name literally translates to "moon viewing burger". In Japan, the tradition of giving reverence to the moon during the fall festival has been practiced for over 1,000 years. For the Japanese, the egg yolk is often compared to the moon, so restaurants often make special menu items that include eggs. 2 or 3 Tsukimi burgers come out every year and all of them include a thick round fried egg as a topping.

Lastly...

Hope you found this presentation of Mcdonald's Japan menu in English useful. Also, note that McDonald's Japan has free Wi-Fi.
