In case you don’t know, Denmark as a country is essentially built upon bacon and potatoes. We even have a dish that’s the perfect combo between the two - it’s called stegt flæsk med persillesovs! Pretty awesome stuff.
Anyway, I like meat, but I also like potatoes! I’d pick mash over any other type on most days, but some good ol’ french fries can be DAMN good, especially if you’re hungover. Which I never am. Cough.
This is my top 3 of the best fries I’ve tasted on this planet. And that’s CRISPY fries, of course. Those soggy ones you kan keep with your poutine.
- Bourbon Steak (Washington DC, USA)
Duck fat. Yes. They fried the damn fries in duck fat. I don’t think I need to add anything else here.
- Henne Kirkeby Kro (Henne, Denmark)
The best fish’n’chips I ever tasted, obviously included some truly divine fries by Mr. Cunningham’s secret kitchen of gnomes and elves in the middle of nowhere in Jylland. Potato magic.
- Fredes Flyvende Tallerken (Aarhus, Denmark)
Imagine baked potatoes in the oven. And then, right before they’re done - you yank them out, cut them up, and deep fry them. Are you kidding me they’re good! By the way, the chili mayo is damn good too!
At In-N-Out in the US, I find that you get the best fries in a fastfood setting. I always order these fresh cut fries ‘extra well’ so they’re almost as crispy as a bag of potato chips. Yum!
There you have it! If you like your fries crispy, don’t miss out on these when you’re in that neighbourhood!
