Chances are you know exactly what to expect when you walk into a McDonald's in the US or UK: Big Macs, chicken McNuggets, fries, Oreo McFlurries, and so on.

McDonald's in other countries, however, are a different story.

To cater to their local clients, locations abroad offer all kinds of intriguing menu items that you'll never find in the States.

From the Veg Supreme McMuffin in India to the Mexican Mac Royal in Israel, keep scrolling to see some of McDonald's most unique and delicious-looking international menu items.

Ebi Filet-O

(McDonald's Japan)

This "burger," found only at McDonald's in Japan, consists of a patty made out of panko-battered shrimp topped with a mayo-based shrimp sauce and lettuce.

Chicken McDo with McSpaghetti

(McDonalds Philippines

McDonald's may be the last place you would think to go for Italian food, but in the Philippines you can stop by the chain for a plate of fried chicken and McSpaghetti, complete with a "signature sauce" and ground beef.

Jalapeño chicken triple burger

(McDonalds South Africa

Perfect for those who love some spice, South Africa's jalapeño chicken triple burger is piled high with three chicken patties smothered in jalapeño sauce.

Rolls with cottage cheese, raisins, and dried apricots

(McDonalds Russia

McDonald's fans in Russia have plenty of options when it comes to a morning meal. Case in point: these blini-like rolls filled with cottage cheese, raisins, and dried apricots.

Ham n' egg twisty pasta

(McDonalds Hong Kong

If you're in China and looking for a hearty breakfast, grab a bowl of McDonald's twisty pasta, which is served in a chicken broth with vegetables and a ham patty — it also comes with sausage or chicken — and a fried egg.

Chocolate croissant

(McDonalds Brazil

McDonald's customers in Brazil have a sweet alternative to the chain's popular savory breakfast choices — a croissant filled with chocolate.

Chicken Maharaja Mac

(McDonalds India

The spiced-up, Indian version of a Big Mac, the Chicken Maharaja Mac is stacked with two grilled chicken patties, cheddar cheese, onions, tomatoes, jalapeños, and habanero sauce.

Truffle mayo and parmesan loaded fries

(McDonalds Australia

Macca's, as the chain is referred to in Australia, has some pretty fancy French fry options. There are gravy fries as well as fries covered in truffle mayo and parmesan cheese.

Mexican Mac Royal

(McDonalds Israel

McDonald's burgers and sandwiches don't come with cheese in Israel, but the Mexican Mac Royal is served with guacamole and "MacRoyal Sauce."

Chili Cheese Tops

(McDonalds Denmark

At McDonald's in Denmark you can get much more than just fries with your burger; you can get chili cheese tops, which basically sound like fried balls of gooey, melted cheese with chopped chilies.

Tamago burger

(McDonalds Japan

McDonald's Japan rolled out a whole series of tamago burgers — burgers with a fried egg on top. The one that looks most intriguing is the one that comes with cheese and a sauce that looks like teriyaki.

Passion fruit and cream cheese pie

(McDonalds Russia

Comparable to the apple pie that's found at McDonald's across America, passion fruit and cream cheese pie is available at the chain in Russia.

Veg Supreme McMuffin

(McDonalds India

McDonald's in India has plenty of veggie options, including the veg supreme McMuffin, which consists of a patty made mostly from spinach and corn. It's served on an English muffin with onions, tomatoes, and mint mayonnaise.

Cheddar McMelt

(McDonalds Brazil

One of only a few McDonald's burgers to be served on a dark sesame bun, the Cheddar McMelt is available in Brazil and comes with a beef patty topped with melted cheddar cheese, onions, and shoyu sauce.

Ham croquettes

(McDonalds Spain

It's not surprising that croquettes — a typical tapas dish — are served at McDonald's in Spain. The creamy filling in these also includes ham.
