Take the Bubuy Ayam McD for an example. McDonald’s decided to throw in a bunch of ingredients like chicken strips, ginger, onion, and chilies into the traditional Malay dish to give it a new depth of flavor which the locals appreciated.

In The Philippines You Can Even Get McSpaghetti

One of the weirdest food items you’ll find on any McDonald’s menu is the McSpaghetti! When McDonald’s tried introducing spaghetti on their American menus, the product was unsuccessful. However, it was a hit in the Philippines!

McSpaghetti is just what you’d expect from a serving of Italian spaghetti; al dente spaghetti, tomato sauce, shredded cheese, and pieces of sausage. We can say it’s a cheap 5-minute tour of Italian cuisine for the Filipinos!

Finland’s Nordic Chicken Salad Tastes More Like Mustard Than Chicken

The base of the dish contains chicken, lentils, kale, and cabbage. You might expect it to taste heavenly given its popularity, but most customers find this dish either too “mustardy” or not delicious at the very least.
