Because it's not fattening enough.

We don't have it in SA either Kleenex. Guess they go for menu items that will sell well.

The toppings sound good, I would like that with beef :)

Even with Beef that would sell well in the USA or SA.

"Spicy Thai McBistro"? Sounds like a sandwich with a national identity crisis.

I agree but the people that make those decisions don't always make the right call.

Perhaps it is being tested in the Canadian market first. I couldn't find the nutritional analysis for it, but I would imagine it would be fairly easy to copy (use broiled chicken breast), add the toppings and your favorite Thai sauce.
