I’m Back…McDonald’s Goes Modern

Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE has been talking about McDonald’s brand-spanking-new bespoke burger bar at Auckland’s Greenlane restaurant.

Earlier in the year, I was one of the first in the country to trial McDonald’s new Create Your Taste service which is currently being rolled out at select restaurants throughout the country, and I have been raving about it every since.  When people were talking about the revamp at Auckland’s Greenlane McDonald’s, I just assumed they were all excited about the Create Your Taste service. Nope, I was wrong! McDonald’s as done it again and I was keen to check it out.

I took with me my trainer Matt Foreman (who is also a qualified nutritionist) because shamelessly he is a regular at the McDonalds Balmoral 😂 so who better to take with me right?

The revamped space includes a lush living wall, the open-kitchen gourmet burger bar, table service, a uber cool McCafe and FREE superfast wi-fi and new Create Your Taste options include new ingredient and side options include gluten-free buns, vegetarian patties, thick-cut chips and a condiment bar along with the 31 unique, quality, gourmet ingredients to choose from.

Matt and I had lots of fun. We both ordered exact opposites but exactly how we wanted them! The beauty of these burgers. He went Paleo with a side salad, and I went for a beef burger with thick-cut chips because 80-20 right and these burgers are boss made with quality fresh ingredients.

If you haven’t checked it out yet, you’re seriously missing out. You create your taste, with quality fresh ingredients, and everyone gets exactly what they want…even if your cutting for summer like Matt!
