“Animal style” fries – In-N-Out Burger

Topped with cheese, extra spread and grilled onions.
In-N-Out Burger, Mill Valley CA

I feel like whenever I order animal style fries, it becomes less about the French fries and more about the toppings. I find that I stop eating the fries once all the toppings are gone. What is wrong with me?! Lol! These are definitely a decadent item that I only get every once in a while.

Brine pickled french fries – Al’s Place

Brine pickled french fries - Al's Place
Smoked apple sauce. Family style menu, $60 per person
Al’s Place, San Francisco CA

I liked the texture of these fries. They were a nice combination of fried edges and limp center. But I really didn’t like the flavor. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a total pickle fanatic but these just tasted weird to me and they were too sour. I also though the choice of the smoked apple sauce didn’t work very well. I think all the hype is unfounded with these, but I’m just going by my own preference.

Fish sandwich – Bongo Johnny’s

Fish sandwich - Bongo Johnny's
Two pieces of crispy battered cod filet on a buttered grilled bun, with tartar sauce, lettuce, and tomato. Substitute for gorgonzola fries with Frank’s Red Hot sauce. $11.95
Bongo Johnny’s, Palm Springs CA

This sandwich was huge! I guess I didn’t pay attention when it said “two pieces” of fish, lol! Anyway, it tasty pretty good and it certainly was filling. I didn’t like their gourmet fries though. I didn’t realized that they were going to get covered with the hot sauce and gorgonzola, so they came out REALLY limp and unappetizing.
