We ate at BURGR a few weeks ago. And we had a burger and fries. The burgers were good - 7 out of 10. The fries were served in a cone.
Now when my wife and I were eating the (truffle) fries we both thought they were dramatically under-seasoned. Now I can eat salt straight so I felt like maybe I shouldn't complain but the wife doesn't like much salt on anything. Of course we ate the fries (because we paid for them - BURGR just gives you a burger). As I got to the bottom of the cone I got a surprise. Little fry piece, garlic salt, salt, truffle powder, pepper, and other deliciousness (that should have been on my fries).
Me having no manners just ate the bottom part. The wife didn't partake. So my question is - is there any taste benefit in serving fries like this? I strongly get the feeling if someone on Ramsey's show served him fries like this he would say something like, "You dumb cow. You don't understand how gravity works. Where in the bloody hell do you think your salt will fall?"
Note: There are some pretty good comments about it being normal for fries to be served inside a paper wrapped cone in some parts of the world. Yes. But this is different. First the seasoning is not a dressing/liquid, second with a paper wrapper you can shake the fries around, and third the paper cone can be sat on its side more or less. The configuration here cannot be adjusted without spilling condiments and people looking at you funny.
