McDonald's expands rice burger menu with three new items

The new items include one with fried fish.

McDonald’s announced it has added three new menu items to its rice burger menu.

In a news release (translated by SoraNews24), the trio consists of the Gohan Fish Wafu Kurokosho (“Rice Fish Japanese-Style Black Pepper”), which includes a Filet-O-Fish, a slice of melted cheese and a special sauce enhanced with coarse ground pepper, roasted garlic powder, and soy sauce that was created specifically to go well with the rice.

It is accompanied by two returning rice burgers that are back by popular demand, starting with the Gohan Teriyaki, which as pork patty glazed with a sweet and spicy ginger teriyaki sauce with lemon citrus notes; and the Gohan Bacon Lettuce, which has a beef patty, slice of smoky bacon, lettuce, and cheddar cheese.

The three burgers’ rice comes entirely from farms in Fukushima Prefecture, the chain said.
