McDonald’s Japan to release its first ever rice bun burgers

By grape Japan

With lobster mayo nugget saucepurple potato and chocolate sauce fries, and even the strangely named Adult Cream Pies, McDonald's Japan's seasonal offerings never come to a stand still. That trend continues with their latest addition to their Yoru Mac (Night Mac) menu--McDonald Japan's first ever rice burgers.

The Yoru Mac (Night Mac) is a special dinner-time menu available starting from 5 p.m. at McDonald's in Japan which allows customers to double the amount of meat on their burger for 100 yen. The new series of rice burgers, which replaces buns with 100% domestic rice thickly packed and cooked in savory soy sauce is being promoted with the phrase gohan, dekita yo!, which is used to say "dinner is served!" but literally translates to "the rice is ready". McDonald's Japan previously teased the release on with a Tweet saying they were craving rice. While other rice burgers, notably Mos Burger's, have been available in Japan, this is McDonald's Japan's first crack

The new lineup takes three of their popular burgers (Teriyaki McBurger, Chicken Filet, and Bacon Lettuce Burger) and sandwiches them between saucy rice buns.

McDonalds trying to take away some of the MOS burger clientele?

I'd rather eat healthy food.

Trying to imagine how they can make better one's than Mos Burger......

Not for me.

But I'd love to try an adult cream pie though.

Just avoid the place if you want a healthy option.

All that sauce will drip off the meat onto the table and your clothes...

MOS has had these for years.

I bet some Japanese people think this is healthy, but white rice grilled with a sweetened sauce is probably worse for you than a McDonalds bun. MOS beats McD, but for MOS prices, the burger at Gusto is better.

Plagiarizing MOS Burger, eh? They've had those riceburgers since the late 1980s. Mickey D's is three decades late on this.

Not changing from MO's burger. MCD's can keep their version.

With lobster mayo nugget sauce, purple potato and chocolate sauce fries, and even the strangely named Adult Cream Pies,

Strangely named?

By grape Japan

Pot-kettle-black! It's only "strangely named" to the folks here who can't read and more importantly, understand, Japanese!

Nothing strange about the name in Japanese!
