Bringing the best of both worlds in a tasty comeback

The main thing that crossovers have taught us is that they are always exciting, out of the ordinary, but most of all, rare. It’s not always that we get to see our favorite music artists partner for an epic duet; and it surely never gets old when we witness crossovers in superhero movies.

Now, McDonald’s is jumping into that crossover world with the most satisfying and delectable collaboration of flavors and cultures possible – with the Flavors of Asia, bringing you the best of both worlds of Japanese and Korean flavors!

Flavors of Asia also actually serves as a comeback – fans of Japanese cuisine will remember McDonald’s Flavors of Japan, served all the way back in 2019; while McDonald’s served a treat once more just last year with the Taste of Korea. But to make things oh-so-satisfying, this exciting crossover is here to let everyone enjoy the best of both worlds.

Combining the fan favorite Japanese and Korean-inspired meals together, bite into Flavors of Asia’s savory flavors of the Ebi Burger, boasting a tempura-coated shrimp patty paired with tangy Thousand Island sauce and lettuce (and the perfect Lent-friendly choice!);and the K-Chicken Burger that lets you enjoy a crispy chicken filet with creamy cheddar cheese and served with kimchi and gochujang dressing that will surely tickle and satisfy your tastebuds, with both burgers housed between black and white sesame seed buns.

As with all epic crossovers, your burgers need partners, too – pick among their Shake Shake Fries coming in the Nori variant, for those looking for a sweet and salty, seaweed-flavored twist, and Honey Butter, suitable for those craving a sweet take on their World-Famous Fries; and finally, cool down with Flavors of Asia’s Strawberry Banana Sundae drizzled in sweet strawberry banana syrup, and the Matcha Sundae for that delectable green tea-inspired taste!

Can’t decide whether you’re looking for Japanese or Korean flavors? Have both in a snap and never have to choose! Experience the best of both Japanese and Korean worlds with McDonald’s Flavors of Asia, available through Dine-In, Take-Out, Drive-Thru, and McDelivery starting March 2!

To make things more exciting for enthusiasts of all things Japanese and Korean, on March 1, a day before its official launch, make sure to be on the lookout for an exclusive one-day early access to the K-Chicken Burger, Ebi Burger, Strawberry Banana Sundae, and Matcha Sundae, only available at the McDonald’s App!
