McDonald’s has become known for its diverse range of menu items, which range from exclusive staples to limited edition entrees. According to a new report from Make Eat, one of the more bizarre dishes on the restaurant chain’s international menu is returning now, but only for a limited time. As the outlet reports, the Gracoro Burger is available in Japanese McDonald’s stores from December 1. What sets the hamburger apart is its galette, which is actually a croquette filled with shrimp, macaroni and a white sauce.
The galette is coated with a crispy, fried panko shell and is traditionally served with buns, cabbage, mayo and a croquette sauce. McDonald’s Japan will also be offering a Gracoro Angus Beef Bolognese Burger, which will be topped with a bolognese sauce made with ground Angus beef, tomatoes and red wine.
The McDonald’s Gracoro Burger has become a winter tradition at these Japanese establishments since its initial launch in 1993. Some have compared it to the fervor that often surrounds McRib in the United States.
This is just the latest McDonald’s seasonal item to return for the holidays, with the holiday pie returning to “some areas” through January. The company also made headlines for its decision to use IBM’s artificial intelligence technology to automate its drive-thru lanes.
“One of the things we’ve learned in our 10 restaurants we’ve done is, how do you train a team not to want to step in as soon as they hear a question or a pause? McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski said News from the nation’s restaurant earlier this year. “We had to practice a bit of ‘just keep your hands on the wheel, let the computer do its job.’ “
“Most of them aren’t ready for prime time, and neither will they be for the next five years or so,” Kempczinski explained. “The level of investment that would be required, the cost of this equipment, we are nowhere near what the breakeven point should be in terms of labor costs, to make it a good business decision for companies. franchisees. “
