McDonald’s Japan rebuilds Filet-O-Fish

McDonalds Japan - Gohan Fish Wafu Kurokosho

International fast food is always the best right. I wonder if folks abroad look at American fast food and wonder why they can’t get that brand new crispy chicken sandwich…

Anyway, behold the Gohan Fish Wafu Kurokosho from McDonald’s Japan; which translates as Black Pepper Fish Rice Burger. The sandwich re-imagines the classic Filet-O-Fish and throws out the burger buns in favor of toasted rice buns! The sandwich comes with:

  • Fried fish patty
  • Creamy sauce with black pepper
  • Roasted garlic powder
  • Soy sauce
  • Cheese slice

The burger runs for just under $4 and is a time limited special for March –
April 2021
