Where to Find Your Nearest Sausage Sizzle on Election Day

It's time to exercise your democratic sausage right.

The Democracy Sausage is now part of the culture. Wandering down to your local voting centre on election day is simply not complete without buying a sausage (with or without onions, will leave that with you), and an ice-cold can of drink from the sausage sizzle happening.

How to Have a Conversation With Someone Who Has Different Political Views to You

The Democracy Sausage has a long, and delicious history, with community organisations seeing election day as an opportunity to raise funds with cake stalls since at least the 1930s.

These days at your local polling booth you’re likely to find sausages, hamburgers, bacon and egg rolls, alongside cakes and slices while you ponder over your how to vote card.

The Democracy Sausage website is your key to planning your election day sausage sizzle journey. The site shows you where and when sausage sizzles are taking place, and will also give you that cake and slice information if you’re in the mood for something sweet on the day. Anything to take away from the bitterness of the election itself.

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.
