Buying a tasteless over-processed burger in Canberra

By troll-sniffer - 22 January 2012 21

A quick and hopefully easy question for Rioters.

I’m after tips on the best place to buy a tasteless over-processed sugar-filled hamburger in Canberra. So far my travels have taken me to Macdonalds, Hungry Jacks and the local takeaway.

The first two specialist stores have been quite good and I will probably end up buying from them.  The local takeaway was a disaster, with large toasted buns, generous patties, beetroot and personalised service.  I mean seriously guys, get with it!

However, internet research indicates there are heaps of products around but in-store research hasn’t backed that up.

I was a little surprised by the lack of products on display at KFC and Ali Baba.  What really disappointed me about these last two was the attempt to introduce a bit of spice into the food on offer.

There must be more than two decent purveyors of tasteless over-sweet processed soggy garbage masquerading as suitable food in Canberra, surely?  Please help me, please.

Try Kingsley’s in Weston. Went there a few nights ago to find they had no chicken – would have been a twenty minute wait while they cooked some more. Dominos was delicious instead.

One option is a microwave burger from your local servo. You have to make sure that it’s cooked properly and is insanely hot on the outside but still frozen in the middle. No salad at all, just a beef looking patty, some plastic cheese and a bit of onion and sauce. The cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast…

Tastes almost as good as the plastic wrapping it comes in.

I reckon you should buy a BBQ and make your own burgers. Also recommend a nice cold glass of milk to wash it down with.

Tried that crappy red caravan by the lake? That way you could also include ‘overpriced’…

Try a frozen microwave cheeseburger from the supermarket. They are so good that even my omnivorous dog refused to touch one.

Well this is becoming quite a little meme isn’t it?

I really don’t think you can go past McDonalds for a tasteless over-processed sugar-filled hamburger. Nothing can compare.

It’s “McDonalds” not “MacDonalds” and their burgers aren’t tasteless. I think they’re quite tasty. Or I guess the fact they’ve sold billions and billions of them is just some strange aborration.

Or if you want to pull your finger out and actually drop some coin on something decent, Grill’d has the best burgers in Canberra.

good marketing.

I think Hungry Jacks make a better fast food burger than McDonalds.

the other option for the OP is Oporto.

I’m with Deckard. Some of those nukeable burgers are really bad. You’d be better off eating a piece of styrofoam.

You could try buying online and having it shipped in from overseas – might end up cheaper that way.

Home-grown meme FTW.
