Not interested in a burger? Fries? Soda?
Just step right up to the postres window. The line is short and the only thing available is dessert.
The first time I saw the postres window was at the zoo. I thought it was just a zoo thing, and a great idea. But every fast food outlet has a distinct line where it’s just desserts. McDonald’s has a spartan window: ice cream or pie. Burger King has a deluxe offering, with better toppings and better ice cream offerings: shakes, sundaes and toppings. Both have the postres window at all of their stores.
I don’t know about you, but I like the sundaes and ice cream at McDonald’s and Burger King. Many days we would visit just for the dessert after playing in the park. And on those “I-just-want-an-ice-cream” days, I would have loved to have the postres window in the US.
In fact, DH and I happen to have a favorite postre (dessert): Mc Donald’s fried apple pies.
In the 90’s McDonald’s stopped selling fried apple pies in the US (shouts out to sasakitime.com for somehow finding an image of a fried pie). While depressed, DH and I decided that when we went on overseas vacations we would find McDonald’s and indulge in a fried apple pie.
Years later, on every single trip abroad we’ve made it a point to enjoy one.
Amsterdam. Paris. Athens. DF. You name it, we put it on the “must do” list, stopped and ate a pie.
In Mexico City we don’t eat them too often. You can’t have fried pie too often! But when we do, we visit the postres window to pick one up! And, in a country where internet banking transactions can only be conducted during banking hours, and everyone waits for everything, I appreciate the genius who decided that no one would waste one precious moment waiting around for dessert.
Have a sweet weekend!
