The McDonald's branch in Cuatro Caminos was where I spent much time while helping my sobrina set up house here in Madrid in 2012. I was drawn to it because of the free wifi and only did away with my daily rituals when we finally got internet connection.
I have my favorite corner here. On a stool, by the window, looking out to the roundabout and minding the church spire of the Paroquia de Nuestra Señora de los Angeles. Very convenient since the Church sits right beside our Madrid homebase.
I'm back, but McDo thoughts didn't cross my mind. Until I chanced upon this advert where McDo introduced The Grand Extrem BIBO Burger designed by 2 Michelin Star Chef Dani Garci. Good for a limited availability only, it was time to revisit the burger joint.
For 6.95€, you get your gourmet burger, fries, and coffee. Can't complain. Cheapest Michelin meal, if I may call it that. Besides, who'd think of McDo offering a gourmet burger?
Two burger pieces, yes! I didn't finish the Bibo and actually ended up bringing home the half. Too much for me -- which means it can be shared. Even cheaper, ei?
Of course there are other choices esp for those who are not crazy about beef burgers. And these may be available long after the Bibo's gone. Buen provecho!
