Foodie: WHY McDONALDS in SPAIN IS MUCH BETTER THAN IN THE USA
A different kind of menu. Whether you call it junk food or comfort food, most of us crave it from time to time, especially when those sudden hunger pangs (probably beer induced) strike. If this sounds familiar, perhaps it will interest you to hear that McDonald’s in Spain has been said to be much better than McDonald’s in America. Why? Well first on the Spanish McDonald’s menu, you can find some unique dishes including Mediterranean. For a starter there is the Big Mac Chicken sandwich, it’s the same concept as a Big Mac but with crispy chicken replacing the beef. On the side you can also enjoy soft and crispy fried potato wedges (Patatas Deluxe),a tasty alternative to regular McDonald french fries. Fish McBites are another addition to the Spanish menu, theese use to be available in the States but due to their lack of popularity they were taken off. Something for a the vegan? In Barcelona you can find a number of alternative themed fast food venues. For instance, there is the vegan friendly Maoz Falafel on Carrer de Ferran in the heart of the gothic quarter. For just a few euros you get a hot pitta bread filled with hot falafels, which you can then fill up to your heart’s content with different salads and extras from the salad bar. I can definetly vouch for this as a late night quick-fix option when those drinking-induced hunger pangs strike. And the good stuff keeps rolling, BEER!: You can buy beer at McDonald’s in Spain!. Say no more, what?!. yes that’s right, at MacDonald’s in Spain you can buy a beer with your meal and enjoy it with fries and a burger, where else do they do that at?!.
