Obviously this is not the taste of authenticity.  OBVIOUSLY.  But in the spirit of the Five Rings to Rule Them All, the BobbLebot brings you innerestingly caLoric burger news via A Hamburger Today:

To celebrate the upcoming Olympic Games in Beijing, McDonald’s is beefing up its menus around the world. The “China Menu” in Colombia and Argentina will offer the Beijing Burger—a patty topped with chop suey and ginger sauce on a bun speckled with black and white sesame seeds—along with fried “rice sticks” in lieu of fries, and caramel-and-banana sundae instead of the McFlurry.

Australia will feature five different burgers as a part of the “Flavor of the Games” promotion: The American, The Euro, The African, The Asian, and The Australian.

Unfortunately, Stateside folks won’t get anything nearly as global—just Olympic athletes on the packaging for the Southern Style Chicken. Russia also gets the short end of the stick: ho-hum chicken and fish sandwiches and a shrimp salad as part of the “McFresh” line. Maybe we should just get Chinese takeout? [via Goodies First]

Om nom?  Me’s liking the FRIED RICE STICKS.  GENIUS!!!  Nothing says RiceEATER like “sticks de arroz.”

IroniCs that ze BobbLebot has yet to taste chop suey — being an American invention.  Ah, if only ah livesed in Colombia.  If only!
