French Fries; America’s favorite side chick. Burgers and sandwiches have always been wifey, and fries are always snuck on the side. But not today, no sir. Today, the side piece gets her shining glory. Today, the mistress becomes the center of attention for the world to see. Today, the french fries have become the main course.
The days of fries being nothing but a side order are over. O.V.E.R. Because Friskie Fries decided that fries are too good to let all of that potential and greatness to fall by the wayside, and left unrecognized. They put fries on the pedestal they deserve. Friskie Fries is a bright blue (I’d say turquoise) truck with a frazzled looking kitty cat on it that trots around Providence, and Rhode Island delving out the salty potato sticks we know and love. But lucky for us, they opened up two spots that aren’t on wheels, so we can always know where to find em’!
Have you ever heard a chick say “Fries Before Guys”? Well when you’re eating at Friskie Fries, its Fries Before EVERYONE AND ANYONE. Seriously. Let’s talk about what we got. Starting with the Cluck-U (yes cluck me). These crispy fries are brought together by spicy, tangy buffalo sauce, bleu cheese sauce, bleu cheese crumbles and crispy fried chicken. If you’re reading this and feeling confused because what I just described sounds like the marriage of your fave side dish (we’ve been over this, refer to paragraph 1) and your favorite way to eat fried chicken, we understand. Because we were pumped too, and it was just as good as you might think it would be.
Ok so next we dug into the lil ‘ piggie Pulled BBQ pork, wasabi cucumber slaw (seriously that was a game changer right there) and a BBQ sauce drizzle. All of your pig roast dreams come true over a bed of these golden tater sticks. LAWD.
Over here we’ve got the Cat’l Call, which is basically saving you a trip down to Philadelphia for a Cheese Steak, because this guy right here is shaved steak topped with that oozy yellow cheese that we all are so fond of. Man is it juicy. All of the flavor and cheese dripping onto the crispy fries, making a finger-lickin-fry basket that you will not be down to share.
Finally, we had everyone's Italian favorite; the Fowl Play (aka, chicken parm). No, you don't have to be on Federal Hill to have phenomenal chicken parm. Did you know that "real" chicken parm in Italy is served over Fries? We're kidding, it's not. But damn! It should be! This was breaded and fried chicken, red sauce (I know, I know, "gravy") and parmesan cheese. Bellissimo!
As though all of those savory, tasty fries weren’t tempting enough, we are about to deliver some ground breaking news. Sit down for this. Two words; dessert. Fries. We were overwhelmed at how good these sweet and savory babies were. We lucked out with the Cinn-Fully Sweet Fries, tossed with cinnamon and sugar, and a dollop of whipped cream. Don't let anyone tell you your dreams are too big. Because dessert fries are a thing and I couldnt have shot any higher.
In addition to the dessert fries, FF is also serving up thicc, tasty milkshakes. You know, in case you were wondering “if a shake comes with them fries”. We had a chocolate and a strawberry shake, and we even got a sneak peek at the newest topping, “kitty litter” crystallized sugar sprinkled on the whipped cream. Have you ever dripped a fry into a Frosty? OK, if you answered that question with a long and drawn out “yesssssssss”, then you’re going to be really excited about this combo. Because the fries are extra golden and delicious, and the shakes are perfectly creamy and sweet. Dip away, fry lovers.
We left Friskie Fries with a newfound respect and view on fries. They have set a standard for the way potatoes are cooked; wimpy, limpy, bland fries are totally unacceptable. How dare you eat a sub-par product when these friskie babes are popping up all over town! They are worth being sought out. Let us know how you like them! (That’s us just being nice, because we already know you’re going to ADORE them).
Thank you to our friends over at Friskie Fries for having us, and feeding us and ungodly amount of french fries. They were outstanding, and we now feel like any and all other fries will have a hard time living up to your standards!
Thank you to these cutie BFFs, Savanna and Natasha for modeling for us! We love the both of you!
