McDonald’s in Australia is a little different to the rest of the world.

Down Under, there’s a thing called “Create Your Taste” where customers can come in and select — using a touch screen computer — ingredients to make their own meal. The ingredients are a little more upmarket than the standard cheeseburger deal, with things like caramelised onion, aioli and brioche buns all available to order and served on a wood platter to your table.
