You haven’t lived until you’ve had a Bondi Burger and a Schnitz chip.
There are a lot of things that we do well down here in Australia.
But there’s one thing we do EXTREMELY well, which seems to have mostly escaped the notice of the rest of the world: Fast food.
Maybe having an incredible and high quality range of fast food options isn’t something that is rated on an official Liveability Index or whatever, but it’s time we all sit down and have a chat about it.
Let’s start with the American chains. McDonald’s is unDENIABLY about a million times better here than it is in the US — or anywhere else in the world.
Plus, the pizza at Domino’s and Pizza Hut always hit the spot.
Yep, it’s safe to say we blow America out of the water when it comes to their own chains.
Let’s start with Oporto, a Portuguese chicken shop that started in Bondi and has become one of our most beloved chains.
Then we have the Mexican trifecta: Guzman Y Gomez, Zambrero and Mad Mex.
Next up: Burgers. Of course, Grill’d has become a popular fave, with gourmet options, fancy salads and heaps of veggie options.
Sushi Hub has to be the most reliably decent sushi on the planet, comparative to its price.
Also, big shout out to Red Rooster who gets a lot of shit but, to be fair, makes a damn good feed.
Then you’ve got your “healthy” classics like Sumo Salad, Soul Origin and Roll’d.
They’re often forgotten when we think of fast food, but there are some shopping centre staples that could be included in this conversation about stellar food.
So, now that I’ve presented the IRREFUTABLE evidence, let’s all agree: Aussie fast food is simply superior.
