McDonald’s joins the Korean Wave

ALTHOUGH a trip to the home of K-Pop and K-Dramas might not be possible for now, fans of all things Korean can turn to McDonald’s Philippines with the launch of the New Taste of Korea product range starting April 5. The four new Korean-inspired products are: K-Beef Burger, K-Chicken Burger, Strawberry Banana Sundae, and Honey Butter Fries. The K-Beef Burger features a 100% beef patty dipped in gochujang sauce and topped with crisp lettuce and slivers of onion — made even tastier with a slightly tangy kimchi dressing and a round egg sandwiched in black sesame seed buns. Get that same mix of mild spice and slight tanginess from the gochujang sauce and kimchi dressing with the K-Chicken Burger, made with a crispy chicken fillet with flavorful toppings and cheddar cheese, all sandwiched between soft black sesame seed buns. Enjoy these with the Honey Butter Fries. The newest dessert offering, Strawberry Banana Sundae, is a sundae drizzled with sweet strawberry banana syrup. The items are now available in McDonald’s stores for a limited time only. Check the availability of Taste of Korea in a nearby McDonald’s store via McDelivery, Drive-Thru, or Take-Out.
