What are the best french fries you ever had?
One of the staples of the American way of life is the french fry. Given how many famous and not-so-famous places serve them, which one had very best you ever tasted?
During a trip to Los Angeles, I ate at several of the famous fast food restaurants on the west coast. I went to Fat Burger, In & Out, and yet none of their fries tasted better than McDonalds. The golden arches get my vote.
The best I get are the ones I do in my own kitchen. At least they're real potatoes. Look up the ingredients of Mickey D's.
Ah...such a difference between the "best" fries I have ever had and my favorite. My favorite french fries come from McDonalds. No way around it. I believe that they use a special salt derived from crack to make them so tasty and addictive. ;-)
Dear God, you are so right. The worst day of my life was when they discontinued the super size.
You two are funny. I agree it has to be the salt, because all of the other places uses potatos and oil.
Oh I wish could remember the name of the place. It was on the beach in Hermosa Beach, California. We were teens wandering on the beach all day in the sunshine and salty air. We would gather our change and order a basket of french fries from this little place. I have no idea if they were the best french fries or it was all in the mind of three hungry teens enjoying the summer on the beach....but they were awesome.
Okay now I'm homesick! LOL
Hmmm a tasty subject to ponder EJ. Thanks for asking. Pondering as fast as a heart beat and the blink of an eye today french fries for me today is pretty much a toss up. More than likely between Del Taco and In-n-Out when served apropos with their formula for common. However, I tend to ask for french fries to have more crisp than common, ordering them to be well done. With that in mind In-n-Out wins hands down.
I always enjoy when sitting in line watching them press the potatoes through the blades exchanged with frequency creating those thinner than normal fresh cut fries. My understanding with their beef their purchases is seeking local to a circumference of miles seeking a minimum of time in transport. They say their beef is refrigerated, yet never frozen,so ponder driving time. Rumor or research shares that is one reason they are not in some locals. I ponder that level of purchasing with potatoes too.
Of course one to consider in a different class are those Cajun Style Fries at Five Guys. If you are diabetic forget the burger, order the brimming over serving of fries and there is a meal. No bun needed and just splurge for a meal now and then.
I think maybe I know what is for dinner or lunch tomorrow. I'll ponder the drive and consider the ketchup. When waiting inside for the fries at Five Guys the opportunity to watch the show behind the counter with free peanuts offers entertainment before heading somewhere with that bag of fries. A 4 x 4 sounds good too at In-n-Out. Darn, a burrito and fries with root beer is good too. I guess I really cannot decide . . .
You are much like my father, ts. He loves them well done too. Five Guys is rising up my charts fast. So delicious.
Hello EJ. I think that taste for well done comes from dad working flipping burgers when near the 4th grade. I think if the fries were burnt we got them for free. I dun'no. I remember those fries were always great because dad cooked 'me up.
Home cooked always seems to trump fast food, burnt or otherwise.
I had to go to Canada for good fries -probably any place there. I bought mine in Crystal Beach and Fort Erie Ontario. They were not very greasy, served with vinegar and salt, and ultra delicious. I can still remember the aroma and crunchy taste of this delicacy.
The best french fries that I ever had was not from McDonald's or KFC. It was from South India, a restaurant somewhere along the way from Chennai to Bangalore. They had curry leaves in it and were fat and relatively short, compared to those of McDonald's. I suspect the french fries were made from mashed potatoes, mixed with curry leaves.
I think the best one for me is MacDonald's and KFC's French fries with Mac chicken sandwich and fried chicken...
Personally, I like sweet potato fries at Counter Burger.
Homemade potatoes cut circular with onions or Ore Ida steak fries. You can bake or fry them.!!!

Are french fries considered a vegetable?Some say that fried potatoes are not vegetables. I say that's a bunch of poppy cock. Just because a vegetable is fried does not mean it's not a veggie. What are your thoughts?
