The Gurakoro Burger returns this winter at McDonald's Japan for a limited time only.

The Gurakoro Burger, a deep-fried macaroni seafood salad burger is a mouthful to order and eat, but the regulars at McDonald’s Japan are welcoming back the seasonal sandwich.

What, exactly, makes the Gurakoro Burger so unique? For starters, it replaces the conventional meat patty with a creamy shrimp and macaroni salad filled, deep-fried korokke (Japan’s take on the croquette). The crunchy-on-the-outside, gooey-on-the-inside sandwich is topped with lettuce, demi-glace, and an optional slice of American cheese.

The Gurakoro Burger is just one of many fast-food items overseas that have us feeling at times perplexed but mostly envious. At competitor Burger King Japan, they are selling pumpkin burgers and temporarily offering an all-you-can-eat Whopper and French fries buffet.

With unusual items popping up on fast-food menus around the world, you can’t help but wonder what’s next at our favorite fast-food restaurants outside of the U.S.
