The Best Fries in the City

SIxy Beast | Oct 15, 2004 10:44 AM

Last night I had the best fries I have ever encountered in the USA. But before you all get too excited, please note that on an earlier thread on this board called "good fries" most people seemed to disagree with my own personal idea of what constitutes a "good fry", or "chip" as I would prefer to call it.

The bad news doesn't end there. These fries are available only as a part of one dish on a set menu which requests "no substitutions please".

These fries were close to what my grandmother used to make, from real potatoes in an old fashioned "chip pan". Everyone at dinner was very impressed (one English, one Dutch, two French, sorry no Americans available to confer with and give an opinion from a US cultural standpoint). They were very long, not too thin, not too fat, soft-centred, on the softer side of the spectrum but with a thin crispy shell at the ends.

Where ?
Watercress.

(full review to come later)
