Oh, you mean Kippax (Holt) I was thinking Hawker for some reason, always good to have more 24 hour trading stores in town, also creates more jobs for local pimply faced teens and gets them off the streets causing trouble at all hours, at least a few :P

Why is it that if I order a Frozen Fanta any time that they have a flavour other than (the disgusting) Raspberry, they say "we don't sell that anymore, we've got (apple/grape/passionfruit) Frozen Fanta now" ?

Well, I got as far as section 1.1 before I found a typo - Macdonalds.

Really?

Surprised you guys didn't notice the planning application in for land on the corner of Athlon Drive and Parramatta Street (near the 'Woden Depot") which includes a McDonalds.

There was an article about that one in the Chronicle the other day. Waves Carwash has finally gotten the go-ahead. Interesting to see that it included some residential development. Not sure who in their right mind would want to live there?

The planners and developers have gone mad if there is going to be housing in thee. Really if you want people living in the town centres fine, but the industrial parts MUST remain industrial.

My opinions on everything.

- Toffee and Honeycomb shake? oh my gosh that's amazing. please tell me it's going to stay.
- Macroons in McCafe! For the cultured folk. (the passionfruit ones are really nice..)

I was unimpressed by the CCB, the sauce however on the Texan was quite nice!

I didn't think it was lime?

I had the McSpicy today. Quite nice, although I think the peri peri scorcher they had during summer was nicer.

Work on the new McDonald's Erindale has begun, with the new site fenced off.  It also looks like the China Tea House has been closed as it is being used as the site office.

Works at Maccas Erindale have almost been completed, just a carpark and some landscaping to be done on the site of the old restaurant. The location of China Tea House is now a carpark and the new store has been open for a couple of weeks in a new Create Your Taste style. There is a work bench where you can watch the staff make your CYT burger with all the ingredients on display; there are also many pot plants too. This store also has a long awaited McCafe :-)

Weston is set to get another McDonald's at the new petrol site on Cotter Road.

http://www.planning.act.gov.au/development_applications/pubnote?sq_content_src=%2BdXJsPWh0dHAlM0ElMkYlMkZhcHBzLmFjdHBsYS5hY3QuZ292LmF1JTJGcHVibm90ZSUyRnB1Ym5vdGVEZXRhaWxfbmV3LmFzcCUzRkRBX25vJTNEMjAxNzMxNjUyJmFsbD0x

Included in this is a Caltex petrol station & Canberra's first drive thru Oporto.

Of course this is pending planning approval.

Eh, we have plenty of those, some are even Oporto/Caltex co-branded. My local standalone store has a drive thru, it doesn't have a box, rather a human in the ordering and separate meal collection windows
