Going off my post from yesterday of places to eat in Iwakuni, I have to mention McDonald’s. McDonald’s in Japan is nothing like McDonald’s in America. It does have the basics that McDonald’s in America but they kind of/ sort of/ maybe taste the same but it’s not the same. The food isn’t greasy which makes it taste different. I’m not complaining. I prefer the way it tastes. Plus there are a lot of things that you can only get in Japan.
One of the things Jeremy likes to get is a shrimp burger. It actually has whole shrimp in the patty. I’m not sure what the patty is made of. Jeremy ate it too quickly for me to figure it out.
Around Valentine’s Day McDonald’s had limited edition fries that came with a packet of chocolate and white chocolate sauces. I loved these fries. It was salty and sweet and soooo yummy. I was so upset when they went away.
The second half of February McDonald’s had a limited time milkshake and McFlurry. The milkshake is Lemon Honey. It is really good but reminds me of a cough drop. I don’t know if I would get it again. The McFlurry is Milk Tea Oreo flavored. I love love love this. It’s sweet, creamy, and not what I was expecting. I love Milk Tea (tea mixed with milk) and I love Oreos. I’m going to be getting this again before it goes away.
You may have seen this imagine going around Facebook.
We went to McDonald’s on March 1st because that was when the Sakura (cherry blossom) stuff was suppose to start. They had the new foods but no pretty wrappers or cups. It was the same wrappers and cups as before. I didn’t like the sauce on the burger. They also had a flavor packet for the fries. I really didn’t like them. Fries should never taste like flowers.
One final thing that is cool about McDonald’s is that when you eat at the restaurant, they will give you a number for your table so that they can bring you the food when it’s ready. You don’t have to wait awkwardly at the counter for your food.
