Last night two friends and I decided to check out Rudy’s on Howe and Chapel. Rudy’s is a typical friendly neighborhood bar – a bit far from my end of campus, but lively on a Friday night with the locals.
We ordered a big basket of their famous fries to share – the grande size, with truffle oil and parmesan. It was a bit pricey at $16, but the portion size was enormous. The three of us had no trouble devouring it though. The fries were blisteringly hot, but we couldn’t help but ignore the burn on our fingers and tongues as we gobbled up the delicious salty and crunchy pieces. There was a good ratio of fresh, golden, soft fries to slightly burnt and crispy ones, and the fries were satisfyingly thick.
The parmesan and truffle oil added a nice depth to the saltiness, and created an addictive flavor. One friend described the taste as almost meaty. The other friend requested ketchup, but no condiments were necessary. It was a terrific experience overall, though now I go and read the Yelp reviews, and people are talking about their special sauces? We were definitely not offered any sauces besides ketchup.
The photo does not do justice to the actual enormous quantity of fries. It must have literally been two pounds of fries. Come with an appetite!
