That is all. this post inspired by : ode to a poutine by sulya who is misguided and thinks gravy on fries is okay where the art work comes from : that is french fries by outofcontxt 20 Responses to ode to a french fry dailytri September 10, 2007 at 7:21 am And I have a friend who douses his fries with malt vinegar. That just seems wrong. A really good fry only needs salt. max September 10, 2007 at 7:43 am Oh clearly your friend has been freakishly influenced by Brits. [Damn, Brits again, and this time they are after the French fries.] sulya September 10, 2007 at 7:46 am French Fries are good (when they’re good). French Fries with salt are excellent. French Fries with salt and loads of good malt vinegar standing by the sea in England are very fine indeed. French Fries eaten from a cone with a little wooden fork and mayonaise in The Netherlands is heavenly. I am fairly non-judgmental when it comes to French Fries. I’m a freewheelin’ condiment lovin’ experimental kind of gal… But, Poutine is not French Fries. Poutine is Poutine… max September 10, 2007 at 8:01 am Oh a little gravy and squeaky cheese does not change French fries into some new barbaric dish [well barbaric yes but new dish no] French fries are French fries. brut September 10, 2007 at 8:09 am Sulya should enjoy this. A friend of mine recently opened a restaurant in one of the IN neighborhoods of New York and has several types of Poutine on the menu. But, get this. I “think” they begin around $15US and up. And, customers are not opposed to ordering some of the best wines to wash them down. Poutine, is the latest food fad in New York. max September 10, 2007 at 8:27 am Well sure. They have figured out a way to charge $15 for a cup o’ French fries and make it status symbol to order. sulya September 10, 2007 at 8:38 am Brut -thank you fo rsharing -that’s fun. a good poutine should be under ten dollars Canadian (way under ten) and not so much with the wine … That said, at least those New Yorkers are givin’ a poutine a go… max – if there is a patron saint of poutine (and I suspect there is) she’s got her eye on you… michele September 10, 2007 at 9:48 am Hey Brut, where is this restaurant in NYC? Personally, I am a french fries with mayo girl. max September 10, 2007 at 12:00 pm I will hide behind St. Francis. brut September 10, 2007 at 1:51 pm Michele… http://www.thestar.com/article/201551 michele September 10, 2007 at 2:33 pm Thanks Brut. $13?? For fries? They better be damn good. brut September 10, 2007 at 2:41 pm ahh, American capitalism. love it love it love it brut September 10, 2007 at 3:58 pm Somebody mentioned a Poutine place on Decarie in Montreal. Sulya, was that you? Did they mean Decarie Hot Dog, just down from the Metro station? max September 10, 2007 at 4:24 pm Wait. Sulya suggested I travel 3,000 miles to go to a train station hot dog stand? brut September 10, 2007 at 4:59 pm Hey, Max, they are not just ANY hot dog. Oui Oui Non Non… (that’s an inside joke) And for YOU, they’re on the house. Stiletto September 10, 2007 at 7:14 pm YES THEY DO AND BELGIAN ARE THE BEST! the besstttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt Kitty September 10, 2007 at 7:32 pm Belgian fries are truly the best. And poutine is poutine and I’m hungry for some of that right now, Max and Sulya, you girls are in trouble. max September 10, 2007 at 8:17 pm Am not. :::scamper::: sulya September 10, 2007 at 10:24 pm Kitty, if it makes you feel any better I food teased myself and still haven’t had a poutine…. Plus, you’re one to talk with the yummy biscuits over at your blog… jeez. Kitty September 11, 2007 at 8:01 am There is only one cure for poutine deprivation. Time to visit the Old City.
