So, everyone asks me does McDonald's taste the same over there and the answer is yes. There are a few difference I have noticed though. On their quarter pounder with cheese they put lots of onions on it. I like onions, but it almost like they put a whole onion on there so I have to scrape some off. They do have chili ketchup beside regular ketchup. I have not tried it yet, but I have heard it is spicy. I also discovered today that you can get cheese fries. I had some students order them. One can only do it with the large fries, but then they get like a seasoning of cheese, and they put it in the bag and shake it until the fries are covered in it. I had one but it wasn't enough for me to decide it I liked it or not. I may actually try it again sometime. They call it fry shakers. Since they do not do pork here they call hamburgers beefburgers, so that people do not think it is made out of ham. They are the same thing and taste the same as hamburgers. Also, I have noticed that almost every car has a huge McDonald's sticker on the windshield in one of the corners. I keep forgetting to ask my students what it is for. I may see other additions to the menu as time goes on, but that is what I have noticed for now.
