    Here’s What You Missed Inside McDonald’s WcDonald’s Pop-Up in WeHo

    McDonald’s gave its iconic golden arches an anime makeover this past weekend at 8505 Santa Monica Blvd. For eons, the global franchise has been cheekily dubbed WcDonalds in oodles of graphic novels, shows, and video games, first popping up in the manga and anime saga “Cat’s Eye” back in 1981. Now, the fast-food giant is leaning into its fictional alter ego and flaunting it as part of an anime-themed marketing blitz.

    I snagged a FREE ticket to enter the upside down world of WcDonald’s located in an imaginary hotspot in West Hollywood on the corner of Santa Monica Blvd and La Cienega Blvd where they transformed an empty space that used to be a flower shop into an indoor dining experience with four off-the-wall schemes, featuring a 15-minute interactive animated journey. There was the limited edition manga-inspired packaging, four original anime shorts, a fresh savory chili dipping sauce, and an all-out immersive dining escapade with a side of Chicken McNuggets.


    WcDonald’s has hit West Hollywood. McDonald’s has brought a fictional interstellar fast food establishment called WcDonald’s to WeHo City. Thursday was open for VIP and media. The dining experience will be open to the public on March 9-10, at 8505 Santa Monica Blvd and La Cienega Blvd. According to a press release, the pop-up space is offering 360 projection mapping and immersive tabletop projections. Reservations are booked, but there may be opportunities for walk-ins depending on how busy it gets. #wehotimes #wehocity #weho #westhollywood #wehonews #mcdonalds #wcdonalds #bigmac #anime #animeart @wehocity @McDonald’s

    WcDonald’s immersive anime-inspired spectacle in WeHo is really about their new Savory Chili WcDonald’s dipping sauce inside a multi-sensory dining with wall to wall projections featuring four anime shorts.

    As the spectacle unfolded, we were pampered by a crew of WcDonald’s staffers who hooked us up with jumbo cups of ice-cold Sprite, 10-piece boxes of Chicken McNuggets, their famous fries, tons of their new Savory Chili WcDonald’s Sauce, an Oreo McFlurry when the show wrapped up, and to top it off, we were giving a free t-shirt and poster on the way out.

    McDonald’s Savory Chili WcDonald’s Sauce currently up for grabs at participating McDonald’s restaurants for a limited time while supplies last. You can snag it with an order of Chicken McNuggets (any size) or get it a la carte from the condiments menu. It comes in a rosy red cup with a peelable shimmery gold covering, giving it a dash of allure tailor-made for the anime universe. At first bite, the sauce packs a tangy wallop, followed by hints of ginger and soy, with a spicy kick from the chili flakes. While there’s a subtle sweetness, the predominant flavor leans toward tang and spice, reminiscent of teriyaki sauce.

    The WcDonalds immersive pop-up in WeHo was open for this weekend only. They were fully booked by showtime, but they allowed walk-ins depending on availability.
