If you ever travel down south — way south — you’ll find that Latin America has a lot to offer. Culture, beauty, adventure… and a bunch of junk food your friends didn’t know existed. McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and Dunkin’ Donuts usually feature their traditional menus with a few items featuring traditional flavors. And no matter how hard you look, you won’t find them here.
Where it’s available: McDonalds in México.
Molletes usually consist of a slice of bread (bolillo), beans, cheese and whatever else you feel like adding to the top. They’re great for hangovers. The McMolletes are just like your abuela’s… except made by teenagers in hairnets.
