I've never seen anyone put mayonnaise on their fries... so maybe that's just an Eastern Canada thing. Here, they put ketchup on everything. The kids put it on macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes... you'd be surprised how many bizarre things they have ketchup on here.Rumpy Tunanator said:The thing I don't get is Canadian's obsession with mayonoise and french fries. I know a friend who likes that as well B-).
I think it's more like "poo-tin". Most English Canadians pronounce it "poo-teen". Just don't say "Poo-ton" - that's slang for "slut" if I remember correctly...SlaveToTheGrind said:
There are variations I have only tried two of them: basic plus hamburger; basic plus hamburger and peas, preferably the smushy canned ones, one of only two situations where I will eat these. The other is with hot turkey sandwiches. Nerudite wouldn't like either of these since they tend to be quite soggy. I liked both but could only eat it occasionally.SlaveToTheGrind said:Leave it to my cousin to let me know. I gathered that much but did not know if there was any special ingredient or regional variation that was better. Arteries, look out.
The best fries I've ever had were at Kennywood amusement park.. really, really good. As for what I like on mine, my favoritefry condiments are malt vinegar and ketchup.Floridays said:How do you like YOUR fries? Or what are the best you've had?
I thought the whole mayonnaise on fries was a Utah thing. Here it's just called fry sauce. You can get it at fast food restaraunts, usually the small town greasy burger place, and it also comes with ketchup mixed in as well. Growing up in Minnesota, I always put ketchup on my mac and cheese.nerudite said:I've never seen anyone put mayonnaise on their fries... so maybe that's just an Eastern Canada thing.

Probably the best fries I've had are "Belgian" Painfully hip, and very 1999, but this place is great! http://www.frjtzfries.com/?Floridays said:I like my fries with cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and a side of Ranch dressing. This is a typical Oklahoma style appetizer! Also chili cheese fries are delish.
The best fries I've had were in Ocean City MD....boardwalk fries! With malt vinegar. Yum!

Man, that just ain't right. All the stuff you could put (shrimp, oysters, softshell crab, sloppy roast beef or even hamburger) on a Po'boy, and someone wants fries. :-#Planderella said:Here in New Orleans, you can get a French Fry Po'Boy - fries and gravy on french bread dressed with mayo, lettuce and tomato. :-D
i love fries with ketchup, fries with malt vinegar, fries with cheese and bacon, fries smothered in chili...but i too will be giving these up for south beach (once i read the book entirely)JNA said:Me too, because I count carbs and glycemic index.
