    I checked their menu and was shocked that they do not offer sauce bernaise. These pommes frites beg for sauce bernaise!

      Tara--
      That's the way I make mine---I was taught by my father. Actually
      he didn't teach me he showed me how to cut the spuds and that's
      how I learned. He got the oil hot and he cooked 'em and they were
      dee-lich-ous !!!!!!! He also taught me to fish and clean and scale
      the fish and to use the entrails and head and stuff as fertilizer in
      our garden------the next fall we had the biggest, best-est tomatoes
      in NY State.

        But what a nice choice they have!..
        ""Fresh Homemade Sauces''

        Aioli, Roasted Garlic, Wasabi-Lime, Lemon Parmesan, Mango Chutney, Cheddar Cheese, Curry, Honey Mustard, Blue Cheese, Chipotle, Parmesan Pesto, Ranch, Chile Cheese, Sour Cream & Onion, Tartar Sauce, Thousand Island .50"".

        I wonder why the TI is a .50 cent add?...Or maybe its .50 cent extra for all of the above?, as opposed to ketchup or vinegar.

                  From their website: "we use no trans fat canola oil" Tres PC.

                  Also a list of the sauces from their website:

                  "Aioli, Roasted Garlic, Wasabi-Lime, Lemon Parmesan, Mango Chutney, Cheddar Cheese, Curry, Honey Mustard, Blue Cheese, Chipotle, Parmesan Pesto, Ranch, Chile Cheese, Sour Cream & Onion, Tartar Sauce, Thousand Island .50"

                  Feeling a bit old fogeyish, but for me proper pomme frites need nothing more than mayonnaise or white vinegar. Anything else is a distraction - like ordering snails just to get at the garlic butter.

                    http://www.parisianpommefries.com/PPF%20menu-1-2.pdf is their website menu. It appears the rest of the site is under construction.

                       `   I prefer home made  mayonnaise or aioli on mine, which happen to look similar to those pictured. I par fry mine first and then refry at a hotter temp the second time. They come out crispy and G.B.D. (golden, brown, and delicious.) For Pomme Frites I use lard as the cooking medium. I know that it isn't the most healthful stuff to cook with but I only make these a couple of times per year. Most of the time I eat well and eveything in moderation.

                              I'm thinking cheese sauce on those, with some minced onion.
