well done?

In & Out Burger will sell you french fries prepared "well done."

That's the only reason I need to avoid moving to the west coast - all the exercise in the world couldn't save me from that.

There's a place called Eagle's Deli near Boston college that was featured on some cable show for the "#2 place to pig out". Their challenge burger is 5 lbs. of beef, 20 slices of cheese and 20 slices of bacon with a side order of 5 lbs of fries. One guy on the show wanted to double that challenge and wound up puking after eating the burger and half the fries.

And of course, there's always the classic Big Sandwich of Nantucket. :)

I've eaten a 4x4, to see if they'd really make it. They will.

wait, what?

there's an objectively right way to cook french fries.

they're doing something else?

This is cooked... longer. Some reports claim it's cooked twice.

But it's got that sort of browned taste to it that just makes it taste... better. I don't know, it just tastes slightly burned, and it's good.

There's a window of correct for french fries, and they let you push towards one end or the other.

Do they also sell french fries "rare"?

I don't think I'll be asking that question :)

Aha, you have discovered the top-secret In-n-Out menu options! Now that you know them, you do realize you're not allowed to leave California?

Well done? That just sounds... wrong.

But just in case you're not weirded out yet, I read an article last night about culinary experiments, including fried mayonnaise and "knot foie".
