On our potatoes that is…
Are you ready for a BIG reveal? At Guzman y Gomez we are now serving fries in all our stores across Australia. And not just any fries. Crispy, golden, crazily-delicious fries. Fries that make you want to quit your day job and find a job that has more to do with eating fries.
We’ve been cooking this one up for a while to make sure that we get it juuuust right and we’re calling it — these are the best fries in Australia. Some might even say in the world.
The secret to making 10/10 fries is pretty simple — just don’t stand in the way of nature doing its thing. We’re leaving the skin on, because peeling potatoes for fries is just plain wrong. The bumps and imperfections of the potato skin give our fries a little bit more taste and SO much more texture. We want to keep all of that beautiful flavour and texture right where it belongs.
But showing some skin doesn’t just give our fries an extra oomph in its taste and a spring in its textural step! The skin is also an important part of a potato’s nutritional makeup. A lot of vitamins (B6, C, and more!) and fibre in a potato sits in or just under the potato skin. So when you strip that away, you’re stripping out so much goodness with it.
Our fries are clean. They are made of 100% fluffy potato, a bit of high quality canola-blend oil, a sprinkle of Chipotle seasoning for taste and that’s it! We haven’t added any chemicals or fillers that sound like they’d be more at home in a car engine than on a plate. The potatoes are freshly harvested from Victorian farms, before being cut into thick fries, snap frozen and delivered to your local GYG, where they’ll be served piping hot with your meal!
So, are you ready to show some skin? Try them solo or with one of our flavoursome dipping sauces on the side – chipotle mayo, jalapeno ketchup or our Vegan, mex chimi mayo! Plus like everything else on our menu, you can have them mild or a little bit spicy! Simply request “regular salt” or “no seasoning” if mild is more your thing!
Or why not start a fiesta in your mouth with a plate of GYG Nacho Fries!
We know what you’re thinking….Fries are amazing but they aren’t Mexican. That’s where you’re wrong. Come back next week to find out why.
