Dr. J. likes French Fries

Dr. J. really needs to get back to work.

McDonald’s fries went downhill when they moved to Canola Oil

That being said, he loves French Fries. Mrs. Dr. J. prefers he order the fruit kebab poolside at New Atlantis Country Club, but on occasion, he has to indulge, especially if it is somewhere where the fries are divine.

Here in New Atlantis, Bobbie’s Dairy Dip is a city landmark and the truth is that you can’t go there and not get the fries. They are cooked Belgian style (fried twice) and compliment a twist frozen custard nicely.

A restaurant called Burger Up, known for their high end burgers also makes some mean truffled french fries.

For a chain, Five Guys does a good job as well.

If you move north to Philadelphia, a Belgian restaurant called Monk’s Cafe was notorious for great mussels, Belgian drafts, and fries. It was a frequent haunt of Dr. J.’s when he was a resident.

Dr. J. brings this up because a Facebook friend (not Spooky Witchy Facebook Friend, but a friend of a friend friend) linked to this article in Travel in Leisure.

They cover a number of places across the country, but none of Dr. J.’s haunts, surprisingly.

Enjoy your fries, before Michelle Obama and Michael Bloomberg crack down.

About Dr. J.

Dr. J. was born the son of a New Atlantean sharecropper who cornered the market on notoriously delicious seaweed Himanthalia elongata (popularly known as Thongweed). With his newly minted seaweed fortune, Mr. J. the Elder sent his son to attend the Academy of Sorcery, Alchemy and Surgery where the good doctor apprenticed with the finest sorcerer surgeons in New Atlantis. Dr. J.'s areas of expertise grew to include bleeding, cutting for stone, trephination, medical divination with outstanding spatial and temporal resolution, cybernetic sorcery and medicinal alchemy. When King Orin of Atlantis fell ill with the Ick, Dr. J. stepped in with an elixir he devised from a combination of minerals, herbs and saps. Curing the king, Dr. J. gained significant notoriety which afforded him the luxury of time to devote himself to his side hobbies which include porpoise racing, the study of supply-side economics, cooking and raising his lovely merchildren alongside his lovely bride the archconservative Mrs. Dr. J.
