If you frequently visit McDonald’s just to eat their fries, then this piece of news might make your day: McDonald’s is opening its first-ever fries-only pop-up restaurant for the weekend of May 27-29. Yep, as in right NOW. Except, here’s the curveball; it’s in Sydney, Australia. (Incidentally, they call McDonald’s “Maccas” in Australia, so that’s how we’ll be referring to it from now on.)
The special Maccas restaurant is appropriately called “Fries With That,” and apparently everything is entirely 100% free. The reason behind that is they want to get people trying new flavors that might potentially be added to their Loaded Fries range, which include Gravy, Guacamole & Salsa, and Bacon & Cheese Sauce. SO, included on the very creative pop-up menu are even more delicious sounding fancy-pants toppings, like Chipotle Cheese Sauce, Pesto Mayo & Parmesan, Caesar Sauce Bacon & Parmesan, Curry, Sweet Chilli & Sour Cream, and Peri Peri Cheese Sauce. And of course, the popular Gravy. Okay, now we’re getting jealous. 7 exciting flavors!
Quick flight to Australia, perhaps? OR can this revolutionary concept please spread to other shores? In time for when we get hungry?
Don’t feel too left out if you can’t get to Australia in the next 48 hours. In the U.S. (specifically in Bay Area of California), there are new yummy garlic fries at some McDonald’s locations, so we can fulfill our cravings.
Let’s hope the restaurant Down Under is amazingly successful, and then we’ll probably be seeing fries-only locations appear in the U.S. and the UK as well. Hopefully sooner rather than later. We also would not turn down a milkshake only restaurant, just sayin’.
In the meantime, Australia: Know that we’re living vicariously through you right now. Please send us detailed descriptions of the wonders of each and every one of these incredible-sounding flavors!
