Many others were shocked by the interesting shape of the McArabia envelope.

“The wrap looks so authentic to Middle Eastern cuisine,” one woman said. “Not at all what I would expect fast food to be like!”

“Planning a trip to Dubai just for their Macca,” wrote another.

But dozens of reviewers couldn’t believe Australia didn’t offer vegetarian options.

“What do you mean, there’s no vegetarian option in Australia…” said one man.

“That makes no sense,” echoed another. “Ireland has a deluxe veggie burger that is one of the best.”

“The UK has had veggie burgers for almost twenty years now – catch up!”
