WE THINK: Legend has it that it was McDonald's who outsmarted Burger King by registering the Burger King trademark in Australia before Burger King decided to open its first franchise there, though we haven't been able to confirm this (read more here). Whoever it was, Burger King in Australia now goes by the name of Hungry Jack's (or HJ or Hungry's) and provides a very impressive burger menu. We went for a classic Aussie Whopper (confusingly called 'Aussie Burger' on the wrapper) which was our first encounter with the famous beetroot, egg and bacon (and sometimes pineapple) topped Australian-style hamburger. It was delicious. We also had a normal Hungry Jack's Whopper. It tasted like a Burger King Whopper, but slightly better. Maybe because of the name 'Hungry Jack's' which we have grown very fond of. Or maybe because we were starving in an airport.
