Being technology impaired, both found the new kiosks at Pukekohe McDonald’s very user friendly. The wait for their burgers wasn’t very long, and both were pleasantly surprised at the presentation, which gave a rustic feel with the wooden board and a cute wire basket for the chips – but did the taste exceed their expectations?
It sure did.
Steve ordered a beastly burger that contained the extra options of grilled onion, cheddar cheese, guacamole, aioli, crispy bacon and mushrooms, while Lynn went for a lighter option, which included red onion, tomato, beetroot and Swiss cheese. Steve described the experience as a game changer for McDonalds and that the stereotyped perception has been removed – you don’t have to go just for fast food. Instead, it could be described as a fine dining experience. Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
