Friday 2 June is National Doughnut Day, the greatest of days since the recent National Burger Day.

National or International Doughnut Day is celebrated on the first Friday of June each year and actually traces its origins back to World War I.

This year, doughnut shops all around Australia—throughout Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Hobart, Adelaide, and Darwin—will be selling our holey hunger saviours in bulk, offering specials, and even some special doughnut recipes to mark the day.

Here are the best deals and specials happening this National Doughnut Day around Australia.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
