Yesterday, we reported that Rays Hell Burger is now serving fries with their hamburgers. Upon inspection of a picture of said fries, there was some question as to their freshness. They appeared to be the generic, bagged and frozen variety, which stands in direct contrast to Ray’s mantra of fresh meat and fresh ingredients. Well, I believe that I can lay your fears to rest. After some hard hitting investigation, during which I subjected the fries to my discerning palate, I’ll say unequivocally that these fries are not frozen (maybe).
I visited Ray’s last night to sample their new menu offering. Before I ordered, I poked around the place, looking for tell-tale french fry bags. I saw none. When I went to the counter, I took a gander at the fryer and saw a batch of uncooked fries sitting in the basket. To me, they appeared fresh, but unfortunately, cut potatoes and frozen potatoes bear a striking resemblance. I got my order and tried a few of the fries and they had a distinct, potato flavor. More distinct than the frozen varieties that I have sampled. Plus, some of the fries still had potato skin on them. So, I’m not wholly confident in my judgment, but I’m sticking with fresh. If anyone gets more intel, let us know.
