Top Chefs Choose Their Favorite Fast Food

Top Chefs Choose Their Favorite Fast Food - Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. NYSE:CMG, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen NASDAQ:PLKI

Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion when it comes time to indulge in a fast-food guilty pleasure. Maybe you prefer McDonald’s Corporation (NYSE: MCD) fries, while your significant other prefers Nachos Bell Grande from Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE: YUM)’s Taco Bell.

Bloomberg’s Richard Vines set out to interview some of the world’s top chefs to ask them where they prefer to get their fast-food fix. Here’s a sampling of what some of the experts had to say:

  • Massimo Bottura (Osteria Francescana, Moderna, Italy): Shake Shack Inc (NYSE: SHAK)

    “They care about the ingredients and that it what makes the difference.”

  • Hélène Darroze (Hélène Darroze, Paris): Shake Shack

    “They serve beautiful burgers and hot dogs with amazing quality of bread and meat.”

  • Danny Meyer (Gramercy Tavern, New York): Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen Inc (NASDAQ: PLKI) and Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE: CMG)

    “I treat myself to Popeyes a couple of times a year and I am wickedly happy downing a few pieces (wings and thighs best) of their crispy, spicy chicken — with a side of dirty rice and biscuits. Or I’m completely satisfied making a lunch of a salad from Chipotle, loaded with grilled chicken, pinto beans, shredded cheese, extra cilantro and spicy dressing.”

  • Karam Sethi (Gymkhana, London): KFC

    “The chicken is always juicy.”

  • Wolfgang Puck (Spago, Bevely Hills): In-N-Out Burger

    “With our burger, you eat the meat. With theirs, you eat the condiments.”
