Foodie mecca San Francisco has come out and voted online for the best french fries and the winner isn’t some duck fat French Laundry fry. No, it’s McDonald’s. The golden arches prevailed with 300 votes. The Frog and I ate a bunch of Mickey D’s fries while we were on the road because in addition to having delicious, long, hot, crispy fries they also has free wi-fi. I have to admit they make a damned good french fry. I was watching The Botany of Desire on PBS this week. Hey! It’s educational. In it Michael Pollan specifically calls McDonald’s out for bio-engineering the perfect Russet potato. They designed that shiny red box to display your fries like a bouquet of flowers. Tempting your senses of sight, smell and taste. I think it’s working. Who wants fries?
