Name me a food more perfect than the humble french fry. It has everything we love about food that’s bad for you — it’s greasy, it’s salty, it’s crunchy, and it’s a carbohydrate. If they were dusted with sugar and had melted dark chocolate on the side to dip them into, they would literally be the greatest food ever made by man. The problem is, as I stated above…they’re not good for you. They’re fatty, they’re salty, they’re starchy. Now, I’m a firm believer in “all things in moderation,” so a few french fries every now and again won’t kill you, unless your doctor says they will; in which case, for fuck’s sake, don’t eat them. If they won’t give you an immediate heart attack, enjoy. However, enjoy responsibly. Don’t eat four large orders from McDonalds in one sitting. Don’t dunk them in a jar of mayonnaise. (You shouldn’t do that anyway because mayonnaise is disgusting, but if you’re going to ruin french fries, at least dip them in ketchup. That’s less disgusting.)
What restaurant or fast-food establishment makes the best fries? I love Burger King and Chick-fil-A’s fries, but I haven’t eaten either of them in years.
