In the spirit of the Filet o Fish and McLobster, McDonald’s is trying out a new menu item – a crab sandwich.

The experimental menu item can be found at select locations in the greater Bay Area in California. Those daring to try McDoanld’s version of the crab sandwich will be indulging in a succulent creation featuring snow crab mixed with a seasoned mayonnaise and diced celery topped with a slice of tomato and lettuce on a sourdough bun lathered in herb butter.

“We wanted to test our own take on the beloved crab sandwich,” Nick Vergis, McDonald’s Co-op President for the Greater Bay Area, said in a statement. “We’re excited for our customers to try it and share their feedback.”

Crab sandwiches are not very common at fast food locations, but McDonald’s is willing to take a risk. And rather than try serving these new crab sandwiches in crab-loving locations like New England or Maryland, it is hoping to catch on out on the west coast. This is part of the fast food giant’s regional favorites campaign, and other regionally-influenced items may soon come to your neck of the woods ,if they have not already.

If the McDonald’s crab sandwich doesn’t entice you, you can always get your passport and head to Singapore to try out KFC’s fried chicken crust pizza instead.

We live in a glorious age, don’t we?
