Squid ink used to create this unique new offering in Hong Kong

For anyone who thought the fast food chain was lacking artistic vision, you may want to take a look at McDonald's Hong Kong and their latest effort to spice things up. For a limited time only, customers can get their hands on the “Black and White Burgers.”

The Black Burger features a bun fashioned from black squid ink with white sesame seeds, two beef patties, mashed potatoes, lettuce, bacon and truffle sauce – likely to be made from truffle oil, a synthetic product.

The White Burger is more or less the same, consisting of a white bun topped with sesame seeds with a crispy chicken patty, mashed potatoes, lettuce, bacon and pepper mushroom sauce. While not as adventurous, it complements the Black Burger nicely.
