We recently learned about what the McDonald's in France wrongly thinks "American" food is, and now it's time to learn what McDonald's in Japan think makes up the history of American food thanks to their upcoming "American Vintage" menu.
The restaurant is taking a trip down memory lane, starting with the fifties. So what is fifties American food like? Apparently cheeseburgers with mashed potatoes and steak sauce, and honey mustard, cheddar and bacon chicken sandwiches (actually, this one sounds pretty good). The next month, the seventies will hit the scene, which seems to mean simply throwing the word "groovy" in front of pretty standard sandwiches. Last up are the eighties burgers, which are even more half-assed as they are pretty much just BBQ burgers and chicken sandwiches that the chain claims are based on pop culture.
Ehhh, not everything can be double shiny bacon.
