The most expensive hot chips i’ve ever had!
How much is too much to pay for golden batons of fried goodness? Should you pay thrice the amount if they have been thrice cooked? By my calculations I recently paid $5… per chip!
Truth be told I didn’t pay $82 JUST for hot chips, I also received Roast pasture fed rib –eye, Bordelaise sauce and sautéed mushrooms (for two). However I see that as the side dish to Felix Bistro Restaurant’s – Triple cooked pomme pont neuf!
These Parisian Fried Potatoes had their own French border protection which was both typically French and typically stupid. To indulge in the elusive pot of gold chips, you couldn’t order them as a side, you couldn’t get them with another meal, you couldn’t politely ask the waitress for an act of kindness – you had to buy the $82 Rib-Eye! And this blogger would not be deterred by something so trivial as a price tag… because I had a gift voucher!
40 minutes later the Potatoes appeared and my French-goodness they didn’t disappoint. I French kissed every one.
They were solid, chip formed, triple-cooked potatoes with a delicate crispiness. The accompanying sauce was delightful and I must say, I’d gladly pay for them again (and the amazing dinner).
The ridiculous nature of trying to obtain these chips counts against them but regardless I am rating them a massive 4.75/5.
