A black pudding burger - Irish heaven in Sydney

Durty Nelly's pub in Paddington, Sydney, serves a black pudding burger. So, I had to check it out. The burger tasted great, though I was slightly disappointed to see that it contains many normal-sized black pudding slices, not a big burger-sized disc of black pudding. Good atmosphere in the pub too, which is just off Oxford Street not far from the junction with Victoria street. There is a great Indian take-away around the corner, on Oxford Street, too. All highly recommended.

McDonalds "Boston Deli Bagel" - seen down under

I am in Sydney at the moment, and I was surprised to find a "Boston Deli Bagel" on the breakfast menu at MacDonalds here. It's actually quite tasty, but baffling to me why it's a Boston Deli Bagel. Is Boston known for its delis? Something more true to Boston would be a copy of the Dunkin Donuts breakfast sandwich.
