Israeli McDonald's Takes Supersizing Very Seriously With 'Big' Burgers, Nixes McFalafel

McDonald's Israel has debuted two half-pound (actually, .55 pound) steak burgers. Meanwhile, the vegetarian McFalafel has left the menu, despite having been introduced just about six months ago.

The "Big America" series includes the Big New York steak burger (lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onion and Royal Sauce) and the Big Texas steak burger (barbecue sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and fried onion). The burgers' name go along with McDonald's frequent decision to name food items after cities, regardless of if the foods have anything to do with the locations.
