McDonald's recently announced the inclusion of international items at a South Florida location, as they've done previously at their worldwide headquarters in Chicago.
Those of discerning tastes have always known food from the Golden Arches outside US borders is often more interesting and… uh, well, better.
So, this would appear to be a positive. But when you see the menu, you'll note their slate of global samples is a little lacking in true, multinational panache. Stroopwafel McFlurry is a nice (albeit sticky) stab at betraying the greatness of Micky D's worldwide front (bedankt you, Holland). But where are the fried chunks of Camembert? The chicken and spaghetti? Where are the durians, damn it?!
Here are the international menu items I truly believe should be considered for any upcoming shots at domestic expansion. Dishes so tantalizing, I'd be willing to sell off the state of Florida, just to acquire them.
Perhaps the only way to convince mainstream America to try a durian, is to bury it deep, deep in McFlurry.
