Hong Kong McDonald’s Batman Burger Does Nothing To Remind Us Of The Caped Crusader

batmanThere’s nothing the Justice League can’t make appealing, right? If you’ve seen the new Batman-themed burger being sold at Hong Kong McDonald’s restaurant, then you’d know that statement is indeed false.

CNET reports the Batman burger doesn’t exactly make your mouth water or bring visions of the caped crusader to mind.

Instead the “Diner Double Beef”, as it’s being referred to, comes with an unidentified white sauce, two beef patties, a slice of yellow cheese, a fried egg and some kind of steak sauce. There also appears to be, maybe, onions in there somewhere.

The mysterious burger isn’t the only Batman-themed item being hawked at Hong Kong McDonald’s. The fast food joint has tied the superhero to a side dish called “Squeeze Cheesy Fries,” which is made of squeeze-cheese, bacon bits and French fries.

We can’t be sure, because we don’t now what constitutes squeeze-cheese, but the side dish doesn’t sound too, um, scary.

Hong Kong McDonald’s is also suggesting guests finish their meals with a cup of green-apple tea.

Perhaps the most Batman-related part of the meal is the packaging: Customers who order the Batman burger all have their meal served in a Batman-head box.

According to CNET, the Batman burger is just the beginning. McDonald’s Hong Kong plans for future meals dedicated to the Flash, Superman and Green Lantern.
