Attention Restaurateurs- French Fry Rant and Kudos

There are more than a couple of  joints in town that can cook a great burger but there are only one or two that cook an exceptional burger and then pair it with exceptional french fries for under $10.  The two that come to mind are Minglewood Tavern and Passports.

The key to exceptional fries IMO are their crispness on the outside and soft fluffiness on the inside.  If you go to Passports ask for the “Joey Fries”  They aren’t on the menu but they are hand cut done well and are killer diller just like the ones at Minglewood.

For other great french fries in town go to Leonardos.  They have it down.  Even if you get them to go they package them properly so when you get to where you going they still retain that crispness.

There isn’t much more disappointing in the french fry world than a soggy fry.  So if you are running a restaurant locally ask yourself “Are my fries soggy?’  If the answer is yes, then take whatever measures necessary to figure that shit out.  Your sales will increase and the people who patronize your joint will no longer say, yeah, the burgers are really good but the fries are soggy and limp.

If you have any questions as to the quality of the french fries you serve your patrons here’s what you do.

Hold the french fry from one end.

If the fry has any sag to it that is a fail.

Heat the goddamn oil up.  Use a different kind of oil.  I dunno, I’m no chef, I’m not getting paid to figure this stuff out.  All I’m trying to do is make your food better so you can increase your sales.

If the chef you pay inst willing to figure it out, get a new chef.

So to sum up this post- Soggy Limp Fries are unacceptable.

Fix this.  Please.  Thank you.
