    This is hardly the best looking dish in the world, but boy--was it flavorful.  Called "Sexy Fries," it's sweet potato waffle fries topped with curry spiced chicken (or other protein of your choice), along with cheese and onions.  It was delicious!  The restaurant is Curry Up Now, which started out as a food truck and has now grown to several B&M locations in SF and the peninsula.  Very popular for its Indian fusion food.  http://www.curryupnow.com

      Yum...that looks & sounds really good to me! I love Indian food & Curry Up Now seems like it does so many fun new menu options!


      What kind of cheese?

      That's a nice combination (sweet potato & curry)

      I make a pineapple curry (no cumin...eh) that might make it's way to what's for breakfast...soon.

        I got it home and didn't even see cheese so couldn't tell you what kind.

              And you were right, it does taste the same.
              My mother used to serve this for dinner, along with grated "cheese" in a green tube.

                  I was telling lleechef yesterday that when I was a kid I couldn't figure out why the cheese that was served at the homes of friends and at restaurants didn't taste the same as the stuff we had at home in the green can.

                    We had the last of the pasta e fagiole for lunch today. I'll spell it correctly, but I can't quite bring myself to pronounce it any way other than pasta fa-ZOOL.

                        In the limited cheese selections that won't kill me I'd say feta would be good with the sweet potatoes.

                                          The cake is from Livoti's in Matawan. They do a superb job in all depts. & the store is a delicious & pretty place to shop....

                                            Had a chance to try the HRD Coffee Shop in SF yesterday.  Maybe it used to be a coffee shop, but it has morphed into a primarily Korean fusion menu.  I was hoping to try their BBQ pork and scrambled eggs over rice, but you can't get any of the breakfast dishes after 10:30 a.m., so I got a Mongolian Cheesesteak.  It was tasty, but I wouldn't order it again.

                                                  Thanks for posting that segment on HRD.  Their prices are a bit higher now--including tax my sandwich was just under $12.  I beat the line by getting there just before the lunch rush.  There were easily 20 waiting by the time I left.

                                                    Poutine!  Today I had lunch at Great Dane and they make theirs with house-made fries and the curds (flavored with garlic and dill) are melted in the oven or under the broiler.  It was quite good, as were the clam chowder and French onion soup.

                                                      Great Dane looks fun! Billiards at the downtown location...
                                                       
                                                      L2B...there was a fire at the Gabila's factory a few months ago that cause a shortage of the fried knish variety. When that happened the poor little baked knishes (the only knishes available at the time) ended-up under the bus....through no fault of their own.  The humble little knish deserved the royal treatment after all that.

                                                        Looks great CCinNJ. I missed the post of the debris gravy you posted, that looks beyond great.

                                                          That looks delicious!!
                                                           
                                                          That's so sad about the knish factory fire.  Looks like they got back online fairly quickly, at least.  I'm sure I've had their knishes in the past.
