As a result, the McDonald’s has a quarter-pounder, but this one comes topped with natural blue cheese. There aren’t just fries. There are Hong Kong Wasabi fries, which include a seasoning that customers add by shaking them in a paper bag.
Other highlights from the menu include the Sausage McMuffin Tomato Salad, a toasted English muffin with a sausage patty and salad vegetables, and a new drink, the Baci McFlurry, which has soft-serve vanilla ice cream spiced with a Baci candy sauce of creamy chocolate and hazelnut bits.
