If you're wary of chicken and beef products after a major meat supply scandal in Asia, the McDonald's in Japan could have an alternative for you - tofu and fish nuggets.
On Wednesday, McDonald's in Japan rolled out Tofu Shinjo McNuggets, a doppelganger of the Chicken McNugget made from a mishmash of minced white fish, tofu and vegetables including edamame, soy beans and carrots. Deep-fried to a golden-brown and shaped just like the original chicken version, the Tofu Shinjo McNugget is crispy on the outside and mushy on the inside.
The fast food chain is known for adding dishes with local flavor to its menu; for instance McDonald's India has the McAloo Tikki sandwich which caters to vegetarian patrons with its potato and peas patty, and gazpacho in Spain.
Tofu Shinjo McNuggets are available from July 30 to early September only in Japan. The country's unit of McDonald's says the tofu and fish nuggets were planned as part of McDonald's summer products, long before the China meat scandal broke.

Well... What can you say? It's certainly not the weirdest thing they have to eat there.
I thought McNuggets were pretty much chicken-free to begin with... (ducking...)
Faux food is faux food, after all.
I don't even like seafood but would love to try your "Lobster Salad with Tomalley Dressing." Nice website.
Hey, thanks, Je'llyBean!!
Ha Ha! Touche!
Why don't we get that stuff? My demand is here and i bet a lot of other Americans in metropolitan areas would love more diversified fast food.
Then demand it.
So they put tofu, fish and veggies into a nugget. Why not do an all veggie nugget? I make cauliflower poppers all the time.
McTofu Nuggets? Pass.
The McArabia looks similar to Applebee's Quesadilla burger. To both I way "yum."
I have to wonder if there are plans to market in any other countries.
