Two years ago, McDonald’s Japan introduced Big America, a series of 4 American themed burgers. Last year, they held Big America 2. This year, they have Big America All-Stars. They’ve brought back 2 of the burgers from the first Big America. This month, they have the Texas Burger, while from the 22nd, they have the Idaho Burger. I liked both, so I’m happy to be reviewing the Texas Burger this time.
Basically, it’s a barbecue burger with fried onions, barbecue sauce, bacon, cheese, and a mustard-relish sauce. It also has an additional bun in the middle, similar to the Big Mac. In addition to the burger, I got the Shakashaka Potato with American BBQ seasoning. It’s regular fries with a seasoning packet that you shake together in a bag. I got this as a set, including the medium fries and a medium drink for 670 yen with a keitai (cell phone) coupon.
So, how is it? The burger is as I remember it. I like the barbecue flavour, as well as the mustard-relish. The onions and bacon add a nice touch. For a McDonald’s burger, this is probably my favourite. If you like McDonald’s, it’s great to try, but I believe it’s only available in Japan.
I like McDonald’s fries. No, I love them. Adding the BBQ flavouring is good, though it’s lighter than I expected. It’s kind of sweet and salty, not so spicy.
I’m looking forward to the Idaho Burger next time.
