Cheesy Habanero Rice Burgers

The McDonald's Japan Spicy Double Cheese Rice Burger is Fiery

— November 2, 2021 — Lifestyle
The McDonald's Japan Spicy Double Cheese Rice Burger is a fiery new menu item from the QSR brand that offers something of a hybrid between American and Japanese cuisine. The sandwich -- titled the Gohan Kara Dabuchi in Japanese -- features two burger patties along with cheese that is infused with habanero powder. The burger is then topped with even more fresh habanero slices to further enhance the flavor and fiery heat.

The McDonald's Japan Spicy Double Cheese Rice Burger is made with rice buns that consist of compacted rice that has been grilled to give the sandwich a substantial, satisfying flavor. The burger is a marriage of American cuisine with elements of Japanese cuisine to make it a great hybrid option for consumers to try out.
