There are few globally recognizable brands quite like McDonald's. The golden arches can be found in just about every country in the world, providing comfort and familiarity to weary travelers who need something to remind them of home. Well, most of the time anyway.

In fact, McDonald's offers a large number of unique specialty items which are region or country specific. These items reflect local cuisines and delicacies and are part of the reason that McDonald's has been able to find customers in just about every place in the world.

Veg Pizza McPuff

The Veg Pizza McPuff is only available in McDonald’s Indian stores. The Indian branch of McDonald's offers many more veggie items than its other branches, reflecting the prevalence of vegetarianism in India. The Veg Pizza McPuff consists of tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, along with a range of chopped vegetables, inside a pastry wrap.

McPaneer Royale

Another one of McDonald’s India’s special vegetarian offerings is the McPaneer Royale. This fiery sandwich is filled with lettuce, tomato, cheese, jalapenos, and, of course, paneer. It is topped off with a signature cheese and onion sauce.

Chicken Veggie Burger

The Japanese Chicken Veggie burger sounds like a contradiction in terms. Obviously, the addition of chicken means that this is not a veggie burger. However, it is a uniquely Japanese twist on the usual chicken sandwiches that McDonald’s offers. Alongside the chicken are soybeans and a selection of vegetables.

Samurai Pork Burger

The Samurai Pork burger, as it is known in Thailand, or the Samurai Burger in Singapore and Malaysia is an annual special menu item that comes around once a year. When it does, it is one of the most popular items on the menu. The pork, rather than beef, patty gives the burger a unique texture and flavor, which simply cannot be obtained with other meats.

Shakachiki Red Pepper Chicken

This is another item unique to McDonald’s Japan, the Shakachiki Red Pepper Chicken consists of a chicken patty and comes with a side of special red pepper sauce, which can be added by the customer according to taste.

Georgie Pies

McDonald’s New Zealand’s Georgie pies are a traditional kiwi food with a McDonald's twist. They are pies (obviously) filled with steak mince and cheese. They also offer a chicken and vegetable version, and even an apple and blackberry format for vegetarians.

It isn’t just the food on offer that changes as you move around the world. The experience of eating at a McDonald's restaurant changes depending on where in the world you are. Different cultures have very different approaches to the concept of fast food and this is reflected in the way that customers in different regions view the McDonald’s dining experience.

For example, in Hong Kong McDonald’s, restaurants are open 24/7. In this bustling financial center, it is not uncommon for businessmen to chow down while checking the latest market news. They also often host informal gatherings of local homeless people when there is space to accommodate them.

In France, meanwhile, diners in McDonald's eschew that ‘fast’ part of fast food, preferring instead to treat their time in McDonald's as they would at any other restaurant.

These regional variations are a big part of McDonald's continued international success.
