From fast food to fine dining: a world first for Maccas

A McDonald's in the NSW Illawarra is the first Maccas outlet in the world to offer plates, cutlery and table service with its dine-in meals.

The fast food giant’s global headquarters in Chicago has given the Warilla outlet the go-ahead to trial table service in a move that has gained international attention.

McDonald’s Warilla franchisees Glenn and Katia Dwarte came up with the idea after Mr Dwarte started serving his parents  and mother-in-law  meals that way during their weekly visits to the restaurant.

It immediately attracted the attention of other people who asked ‘‘How do I order that?’’

Im sorry but anything mcDonalds  tries to sell me they can s**k my b***s,everything they serve is so refined it is unreal.I dont care if they told me the cow was only grass fed in the least polluted place on earth and was just slaughtered.I would tell them to shove it

It seems like consumer confidence has dropped since the BK fiasco.

Pardon my Australian ignorance, but what was the BK fiasco?  Presumably Burger King, but I haven't heard anything such as a fiasco.

Im so hungry I could eat a horse... I think ill go to BK!
Actually, it didn't disturb me at all. Kinda made me want to go to BK as soon as I heard. I just like trying new cuts of meat is all... nothing odd.

The only safe bet is to not eat junk food in the first place. I've observed a marked difference in the health of those who eat junk food and those who don't . A few years back there was a documentary type movie called "Supersize Me"...let me see if I can find a link.

Ok, got it. If you haven't seen this, you need to watch it.

My confidence in what these companies pass off as food bottomed out long before bk's prob's haha

I had my first waffle here in Vietnam last weekend.  A small waffle shop has opened up, and they know what they are doing, even though they were all Vietnamese.  It was nice and crunchy with blueberries and blueberry syrup and vanilla ice cream and a little powered sugar.

Of course to break my dietary rules that badly I had to take an extra dose of metformin and put up with diarrhea all night, but it was worth it.

I also understand that both McDonald's and Starbucks are here.  There are KFCs all over the place, so these other American chains are way behind.
