    I went to one in Nanning, Guangxi province I remembered it was open 24 hours and had much the same menu as in the US with some unique Chinese twists. For one thing, they also have pork burgers and instead of an Apple Pie, you can order a Sweet Taro Pie! The Sweet Taro Pie is really good and should, in my opinion, be introduced to other McDonalds outlets all over the world.

    What an interesting thought....I would assume that many are similar, though it makes sense that they'd have their own twists. That's something I'd never given thought to before!

    I am sure that Chinese food will be to your liking. There is such a wide variety that you would be missing out a lot by sticking to familiar food like McDonald's. There is so much to try and some personal favorites are Peking Duck and dumplings. Street food is also cheap and tasty. You could stick to some known Chinese dishes like sweet and sour pork if you're not feeling adventurous. Even noodles dishes taste better in China but that's just my opinion. Do give the local food a try before running off to the nearest fast food restaurant.

    While jules makes an excellent point, if you have any dietary restrictions then your best bet is going to be sticking to things like McDonalds. I would definitely avoid street foods if you allergic or particularly sensitive.

    Esperahol has a point. If you have a sensitive stomach or any food allergies, I suggest you stick to McDonalds or American fast food outlets. Of course if you have no food issues and are really adventurous, then avoid McDonalds and just eatwhat the locals eat. When I was in Nanning, I asked the receptionist at the hotel we were staying at to direct us to some good restaurants. We told her we wanted to eat what she would normally eat out on a weekend with friends. She told us to go to this huge restaurant called Lijiangren that served Southwestern Chinese cuisine. She had impeccable taste, everything there was delicious! And really, the food was great value for money. So if you're adventurous at heart, give the local food a try.

    Is McDonalds China Meny Same As McDonald USA

    Yes, I think sticking to what you know if you're not adventurous, and going "far out" if you are, is a good idea. Better to keep to the boundaries you're used to if you're unsure of something, but I too wonder whether the menu in China will be the same as that in our own countries.

    Weird Mcdonalds Menu Items

    I've always heard that menu's of large chains, such as McDonald's, tend to get a little weird in other countries because they are tailored to the cultural difference of the area. A pork burger doesn't sound too bad, but I'm not too sure about Sweet Taro pie. I highly doubt I'll ever be traveling to China, since I'm terrified of flying, so I don't think I'll ever have to worry about this.

    I'm now in Thailand and the menu includes a pork burger too. The desserts seem to be the same though. Actually the sweet taro pie I tried was pretty delicious.
    McDonalds is one chain that adapts their menu to the local preferences. They have croissants, caneles and French pastries in their Bordeaux branch. Also, I think they have mutton burgers in India as the Hindu population regards cows as sacred and therefore do not eat beef.

    Mcdonalds Chinese Menu

    The menu does have a twist, it has rice dishes also. It's aimed more towards Chinese people. I went at the start of the year and to be honest I loved the menu. I had a beef rice wrap, it was nice . They also have the standard menu like Big Mac and McChicken Sandwich etc.

    I always thought that they had the same menus over there. Maybe some differences here and there, but I think basically it's the same.

    No, I didn't find it was the same at all. They had a number of the same things, but a lot of it I found was different. They have most of what we have but with some of their own things added. Like as well as the Apple pie they also have a Sweet Taro Pie, which tastes like a sweet potato. They have a number of Chinese things on the menu also.

    I would of never had known if I hadn't read it here. That is kind of original how they add their own little twist there with the other items on the McDonalds menus. I think that is great so that you can get a taste of their foods as well. I think that was a really great idea whoever thought of it knew what he or she was doing.

    Wow. I've always been a sucker for different kinds of pies. I will definitely try out that Sweet Taro Pie if ever I come across it in a McDonald's in China as well as other kinds of pies from other countries too.

    In Thailand, even the KFC serves rice. You can order rice with fried chicken in a sweet, sour and spicy sauce with cilantro (very Thai). When I travel, I sometimes go to the local McDonald's just to see what the differences are from the original in the US. I remember the Chinese pork burgers were pretty good too. Most of the other main items were similar and not too alien to Americans who grew up on McDonald's over in the States.

    Re: mcdonalds In China Menu

    Is there a directory of various restaurants so that one can find options other than MacDonald's? That would be my last choice of a meal in such a rich country. If I did get scared of the local food maybe a directory could point me to an Applebee's or Olive Garden.
