Americans are occasionally suggested to be loud, boorish and, well, just plain gluttonous. McDonald’s Japan has just announced a rather strange new menu that plays with that notion of American gluttony, which is odd considering McDonald’s America had a McHand in creating it.
The menu is called American Vintage and comes in three varieties, each representing a different decade of American culture. The 1950’s American Diner features some wild burgers that were absolutely never served at an actual American diner, including one that is topped with both mashed potatoes and an egg. The 1970’s Soul Food menu features a bunch of items that have “hot and groovy” in the name, but otherwise seem like regular sandwiches topped with salsa. Finally, the 1980’s Pop Culture menu throws barbecue sauce, bacon and something that appears to be relish into the mix. What, no Max Headroom or Alex P. Keaton?
These menus will be available across Japan for the next few months.
