Bill Gates has recalled how he and fellow billionaire Warren Buffett once had lunch together at McDonald's — and you will not believe how they paid for it.

The Microsoft chairman, in his 2017 annual letter — which this year he and his wife Melissa address to Buffett — asks the legendary "Oracle of Omaha" if he recalled a road trip they went on took.

"Remember the laugh we had when we traveled together to Hong Kong and decided to get lunch at McDonald's?" Gates wrote.

"You offered to pay, dug into your pocket, and pulled out . . . coupons!"

He jokingly called Buffett — the third richest man in the world worth an estimated $75 billion — a "big spender" who values "a good deal."

Gates went on to praise Buffett for his charity, recalling how in 2006 he donated the bulk of his fortune to The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to "fight disease and reduce inequity."

"Saving children's lives is the best deal in philanthropy," Gates said.
