This massive burger comes straight from Australia’s Cavendish Cafe. We’re looking at 3 three-pound beef patties, 20 slices of bacon, cheese, onions, tomatoes, pickles and lettuce all being sandwiched by bun that weighs over three pounds. Must be booked ahead of time if you wish to stroll into the restaurant to give it a try. I’ve seen plenty of “big burgers” in my day, but this one actually manages to look appetizing!
This video was shot in Brisbane, Australia, where 28 people have passed away in one of the worst flooding for that area in the past four decades. 30,000 homes and businesses have been lost to the flood, and one of which, is this McDonald’s filled high enough with water that this eery video was shot at ease. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this flooding in the area.
My friend Clayton Woodley .aka. PartyWithPanda .aka. re-occurring Foodbeast contributor, just recently spent a month in Australia shooting photos. After the Missy Elliott concert he shot, they all headed over to Rosati Restaurant in Melbourne. Take a look at the gorgeous food Panda and the crew he was with got into, after the jump.
If you reside in Australia, McDonald’s is doing you and your family a solid by packaging up 3 different groups of items into Family Dinner Boxes and making them available to you from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Here’s how the three options are looking, courtesy of BurgerBusiness:
- The Family Value Dinner Box is the entry-level family meal, priced at AU$19.95 (about US$18.31). Food choices include the signature Big Mac, cheeseburgers and Chicken McNuggets, with four small fries and two large and two small soft drinks included.
- The Family Favourites Dinner Box upgrades food choices to include Quarter Pounders as well as Big Macs, and all four drinks go large; two large and two small fries are included. Marketing materials do not indicate prices above the Family Value box.
- The Family Selections Dinner Box is the premium option. Food choices include the Grand Angus and Mighty Angus burgers introduced last summer. All drinks and fries are large size. The “Selections” name ties to the “M Selections by McDonald’s” menu of premium-price items that McDonald’s created last November in Australia (where McDonald’s has about 800 stores).
