Culi­nary cre­ative out­let

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food - with Belinda Cipri­ano

IT is not ev­ery day you get to make your own burger at a restau­rant, but with the Cre­ate Your Taste Menu at McDon­ald's, cus­tomers can do just that.

Beechboro and Mor­ley store own­ers Richard and An­nie Hill in­vited us to give the new sys­tem a whirl to cre­ate burg­ers with a twist.

Choos­ing from more than 30 in­gre­di­ents in­clud­ing crispy ba­con, gua­camole, grilled pineap­ple and Colby cheese, there is much more to choose from than the hum­ble McChicken burger.

When we ar­rived, our host, who went through the process of or­der­ing with us, then de­liv­ered our meals to the ta­ble when it was ready.

I went for a brioche bun with dou­ble An­gus beef pat­ties, crispy ba­con, Swiss cheese and chipo­tle, served with a side of fries and soda wa­ter.

While my col­league went for a bun­less burger (let­tuce leaves in­stead), with An­gus beef patty, pineap­ple, avo­cado, tomato, crispy ba­con and a side of fries.

My burger was de­li­cious and cer­tainly matched it with the gourmet burger joints serv­ing the same sort of com­bi­na­tion.

My col­league de­scribed her com­bi­na­tion as tasty and sub­stan­tial de­spite for­go­ing the bun for the let­tuce wrap.

Hill said while still only new to the stores, the con­cept had proven pop­u­lar with cus­tomers.

She added, de­spite cus­tomers get­ting to cre­ate their own, she had in­creased her staff lev­els by about 30 per cent.

Other stores to have the new sys­tem in­clude Jolimont, North Perth, Hay Street East, North­bridge and Wil­liam Street.

Cre­ate Your Taste is the first of many na­tional ini­tia­tives, with the aim of adapt­ing the ser­vice and food ex­pe­ri­ence the restau­rant chain of­fers its cus­tomers.
