Two of My Favorite Food.....

With all my talks of healthy lifestyle, it is almost un-savvy to mention french fries. I said almost.... Whenever I visit a new restaurant, the first thing I look for is fries. Of course, without fail, I will order pommes frites to satisfy my craving for crunchy comfort food. Recently I dined Haven Gastropub in the city of Orange. The atmosphere was very lively and casual. Food is delicious, even if service was slightly on the slow side. I got a bowl of yummy fries. It might sound simple, but french fries done just right are hard to come by for some reason. I expect my fries to be light, crunch and flavorful, without a slight hint of oil. It is just un-savvy to eat soggy, oily fries.... Yuck, right?!
And, to finish off the meal, I ordered my next favorite food, strawberry dessert. This particular dessert was quite interesting, shortbread contained pepper which added a twist to this sweet dish. If I could, I start with dessert first...... What about you, what is your favorite food when dining out?

  1. I'm such a bread person - good bread usually indicates other great food. I discovered truffle fries though and they are amazing!

  2. I think it's kind of like eggs- deceptively simple, yet very hard to get just right.

    The strawberry dish looks divine! :D

  10. I love fries! Sprinkle a good dash of herbs & parmesan on them...or truffles...hmmmm. Even plain they're awesome. As long as they are crispy and not too thick & soggy.

  13. I always judge a fancy restaurant by their bread - if it's warm, soft, good butter, chewiness; the better places will make it well! Good fries are a good criteria as well. So many places make them, but few make them worth visiting a place for that alone.
