Big America Burgers are Back at McDonald's in Japan


Last year's Big America burger series at McDonald's in Japan was so popular that they're doing it again this year. Starting today, the Big American 2 series debuted with the Texas 2 burger. Here's some info about what's in the four burgers to be rolled out over the year:

  • Texas 2 (645 kcal, available 1/7): Top bun sprinkled with grated cheese, chili beans, onions, bacon, middle bun, beef patty, American cheese, and whole grain mustard
  • Idaho (713 kcal, available late January): Onion bun, whole grain mustard sauce, onions, bacon, hash brown, beef patty, cheese, rich pepper sauce
  • Miami (557 kcal, available mid-February): Taco-seasoned ground beef, tortilla chips, shredded lettuce, cheese, beef patty, spicy tomato chili sauce
  • Manhattan (542 kcal, available mid-March): Mozzarella, onions, lettuce, sliced pastrami, beef patty, sour cream sauce

All the burgers will use a 4-ounce beef patty and cost ¥400 to ¥420 (about $4.80 to $5.05). They'll be sold starting at 10:30 a.m. at Asa-mac McDonald's (locations that serve breakfast). The burgers won't be available at McDonald's in Ooita and Kumamoto prefectures.
