McDonald’s Japan brings back 'American' series

By Kay, SoraNews24

For everyone in Japan who wants a taste of America, McDonald’s Japan is bringing back their popular “American” burgers, this time as a line of “American Deluxe” burgers. And they’ll be kicking off the new line starting Nov 1 with the “Deluxe Cheese” series which will involve some serious cheeziness (in a good way, of course).

It’s been three and a half years since McDonald’s came out with a new line of American burgers, so expectations will undoubtedly be high for the soon-to-be-released Deluxe Cheese items. Let’s take a look at what will be on offer.

● The Deluxe Cheese Beef

490 yen, 790 yen for Value Set combo with side item and drink.


This burger is made with a thick 100-percent beef patty, plus strips of smoked bacon, combined with sliced cheddar cheese and cheddar cheese sauce, all sandwiched between special buns flavored with a topping of powdered cheese.

● The Deluxe Cheese Chicken

490 yen, 790 yen for Value Set combo.


This is another cheese-filled creation that features a crispy fried chicken patty along with smoked bacon, sliced cheddar cheese, cheddar cheese sauce, and pepper-flavored steak sauce, also sandwiched with the powdered cheese-topped buns.

● The Deluxe Cheese Muffin

330 yen, 400 yen for drink combo, 530 yen for Value Set combo.


This breakfast menu item (served until 10:30 a.m.) consists of a spicy sausage patty, a cooked egg, smoked bacon, sliced cheddar cheese, and cheddar cheese sauce sandwiched between slices of toasted English muffin.

● The American Cheddar Potato

190 yen


This side item is a combination of mashed potatoes and cheddar cheese fried into bite-sized pieces. The texture of the crispy outer batter should provide a nice contrast with the moist potato filling inside.

Based on the descriptions and pictures, it certainly looks like the items are full of cheesy goodness! The Deluxe Cheese series is the perfect followup to the autumn cheese smoothie, and it will be available for a limited time only, with the next series in the American Deluxe line due to come out in late November.

So if you’re in Japan and want to try the cheese-infused items, make sure you don’t wait too long to visit a McDonald’s near you.

Know what's actually on McD's menu in America? The Quarter Pounder with Cheese that McDonald's Japan should have never killed.

It’s probabky the American recipe in Japanese size. So don’t forget to buy two. Sorry if I seem chronically hungry but these just don’t fill me up.

Don't forget the tomato slice . . . sometimes I think the best part of a sandwich is the lettuce and tomato . . . you need the fresh vegetables.

They going to have the stupid stereotyped ads too like last time?

If only they actually looked like that when you buy them.

It's still a no thanks from me. I would rather pay more and have a proper burger that won't make my insides do funny things after I ate it.

Made with plasticised processed cheese and I hate to think what they make the sauce out of but it ain't cheese....,,,

How many calories for that deluxe cheese chicken? Looks good almost as good as Arby’s.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Lack of mustard of burgers, that one pickle rule even for a double burger, coke that tastes like it's been run through a 1000 kilometer hose, can't even fill up the fry containers anymore, wasn't there a scandal about them instructing workers to side fill the fries to save a few yen?


whats the point of bringing back the quarter pounder when that can't even have the brains to put enough onions on it? Almost every time I would take it back and tell them to put more onions on it. Pathetic the inflation/cost cutting of this corporation. I hope they die.

oh, and by the way, is that American bacon? Because they sure don't understand what bacon is all about here.

And one more thing! Who the heck puts fake cheese on burgers. That should be illegal!

Plastic cheese that has no flavour and sticks to the roof of your mouth.

Quick, somebody inform Fox News there's cheese beneath the meat.

It's probably still better than the Meiji cheese my wife buys and forces me to eat.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Everytime I've been to USA, I've always managed to eat healthily. McD really does give USA a bad name.
