Japanese fast food fans ain't lovin' it. McDonald's restaurants there are running out of fries due to a potato shortage that was sparked by a labor dispute at ports on the west coast of the U.S. But fries are far from standard fare for Japanese McDonald's lovers. Take a look at interesting McDonald's dishes around the world, compiled by CNN.
Tofu Shinjo McNuggets
Japan's Tofu Shinjo McNuggets are made from a mishmash of minced white fish, tofu and vegetables including edamame, soy beans and carrots.
Who needs fries when you can have cold tomato soup, or gazpacho, which is a specialty at McDonald's in Spain.
McAloo Tikki Sandwich
The McAloo Tikki sandwich at McDonald's India appeals to the country's large vegetarian population with a potato and peas patty, onions and tomatoes, and special spices.
Turkish Breakfast Plate
This breakfast plate served at McDonald's Turkey consists of eggs, tomatoes, feta cheese, cucumbers, berries, toast, and honey. You might almost forget you're at a fast food chain.
Le Croque McDo
You might call it a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, but on the menu at McDonald's France, it's a Le Croque McDo.
This McLobster roll adds a touch of class to the McDonald's menu in Canada -- a summer specialty.
Empanadas are a staple snack in Chile, where they are a popular item on the McDonald's menu. These empanadas contain only cheese.
Twisty Pasta with Sausage and Egg
McDonald's Hong Kong serves twisty pasta with sausage and egg. And you can have it only for breakfast.
This corn soup is a specialty at McDonald's Taiwan. McDonald's in Hong Kong, Sinapore, and other Asian countries also sell cups of plain corn, if corn soup is too exciting for you.
This ground beef sandwich with onions, cumin, and coriander is marketed as the McArabia sandwich in Morocco. According to McDonald's Morocco, it contains "a thousand and one flavors" that "wake up our taste buds."
Molletes, a traditional Spanish and Mexican snack, are offered for breakfast at McDonald's Mexico.
