One wouldn't normally turn to the Golden Arches for decadent desserts, but sometimes life surprises you. McCafe, McDonald's upscale chain of coffee spots, rolled out their winter collection recently, and the highlight is their take on the Austria's chocolate cake, the Sachertorte.

The Mc-Vienna treat (¥360) won't deliver an authentic European dessert experience, but the dense chocolate packs an extremely sweet flavor, and comes served with whipped cream on the side.
