I judge a good chip by its crunch, generosity of potato (thick-cut but not wedges) and a thin coating. Every time we visit Melbourne, we are sure to pay Lord of the Fries a visit. Nested inside Flinders Street station, the menu for this hot chip joint is amazing – it boasts internationally influenced sauces from Thai, Belgian, Mexican, Aussie, Indian, African and even, French-Canadian.
It’s always a struggle to decide between the sauces but as we both were salivating from the thought of last year’s sauce, we settled for the French-Canadian, which was hot brown gravy over melted cheese and it is such a genius combination! My fellow foodie, a confessed hot chip addict, found this round’s chips had too much cheese, and a cheese lover himself, I was surprised – although, I still thoroughly enjoyed the fries. You can taste real potato and crunchiness; exactly the way I like it.
