the fark is chips and curry? Curry flavoured gravy?

You can't get good chips and peas in the USA.

Or anywhere else, for that matter.

Mild curry sauce on chips/fries. It's not bad, but I'm still picking the cheese

All of these, poutine, and most importantly, green chile smothered carne asada fries. Colorado style green chile, not New Mexico style.

It's the best of the choices, really, because none of them are poutine.

See, you lost me at malt vinegar. And I can go down the road here a bit, and get a duck confit poutine that is mouth meltingly good, and that's in Mass.

Don't get me wrong, cheese and gravy fries ARE fantastic, but I'll give it to the Quebecois--ebbil bastiches that they are as a collective--for the addition of cheese curds. You throw on some bacon, green onion, and you have heaven in cast iron.

I don't know that anything can save those undercooked and soggy looking 'chips' in the Tweet though. Those are sad, sad, sad potatoes that gave their lives to go down into a sodden and ignominious lot.

I've lived all over, except in the Hellhole that is Jersey, and have never once heard of disco fries.  Not in the Southeast, Southwest, Northwest, Midwest, Mid-Atlantic... nope.  Or Canada, for that matter.

They sound delicious, now that I've looked it up, but as Cthulhu is my witness, I never heard of them before today.

You will note, that we haven't mentioned the joy of chili fries. Chili fries beat even poutine. Gravy and cheese is a good choice, but chili and cheese fries? That's a meal unto itself.

Let's start with common ground. Jersey is a hellhole. But disco fries were a known thing from Chicago to upstate NY. Have only visited west coast and could not be bothered with Deep South outside the east coast. I don't think they're a jersey thing.

Disco fries are a Jersey staple, and they are inferior to poutine. Poutine: cheese curds and gravy and fries. Disco Fries: cheese and gravy on fries. With poutine, the curds add some texture. Disco fries are literally fries swimming in a melted cheese and gravy sauce.

But if you want an improvement for either dish, find a restaurant in the US South that makes disco fries or poutine, because no one in the north knows how to make gravy properly.

Nope. Lived in many places. And by lived I mean either worked or spent months. That's Chicago, DC, NYC and upstate, Vermont. Also worked In London, extended stays in Amsterdam, Naples, Berlin. Never been to far west outside of brief stays in California and Hawaii. (Btw, London is where I got the malt vinegar taste, or do you think malt vinegar is just in jersey and nyc?)

So most my time has been in nyc, but certainly not all. I just thought disco fries were as common as say pizza or hotdogs.

Yeah, I figured the malt vinegar had to be picked up in England.  I've seen fries with brown gravy in Maryland/DC, but not disco fries.

I still say poutine are probably preferable, I like the curds.  But I will withhold my verdict until I have an opportunity to sample disco fries.

And I hold with the chili cheese fries crowd.  Chili Cheese fries > poutine > bacon/cheese/sour cream loaded fries > plain fries > whatever TF this shiat is

you DO realize that when it comes to living stateside you've only experienced a tiny chunk of the northeast, DC, and chicago? and when you were in chicago you apparently only ate in diners run by ex-jersey-ites? cause that's my hometown city, and i lived in 4 different chicago neighborhoods over 5 years and NEVER encountered anyone serving fries soaked in brown gravy. like i said, maybe some ex-east-coaster serves it, but it's NOT one of the "chicago foods" that are common or iconic.

and maybe you observed these "disco fries" in vermont because people from jersey occasionally move there?

you 100% made the classic blunder of not appreciating that food culture is often regional. which is a thing that makes it cool!

I just don't get it. Everyone appears to know about poutine. Like the most regional Canadian thing ever (other than hockey pucks and letterkenny). But disco fries are an obscure regional aberration? Like every place has their own take on cuisine. Pizza is as varied as it gets. But everyone knows what pizza is. Didn't Ben's chili bowl make some version of loaded fries in DC? Like chili on fries?

Maybe disco fries is a regional colloquialism. But loaded fries are pretty common.  But like pizza they vary and some are better than others. Poutine is pretty horrible version of loaded fries. Curdled cheese balls. It's like saying California pizza is good. Just no. It's technically pizza and poutine is technically loaded fries. Both are inferior. Like British cuisine excels at fish and chips and the best Indian food.  Some places just make a better version of a particular dish

at this point, i just want you to tell where you ate in chicago that served brown gravy on fries, with or without cheese, i don't even care what they were called!

i'm not somebody who orders fries if they don't come with my sandwich or something. but i've certainly seen cheese fries and chili cheese fries all around chicagoland, but the inclusion of gravy is an aberration from the norm....

i'm pretty sure that it's like how chicago italian beef is a chicago thing (though people DO make it in other places, usually ex-chicagoans who open restaurants, and they often make it poorly), disco fries ARE a jersey thing.

which is fine! jersey is allowed to have one special regional "jersey thing" food, and YOU are allowed to enjoy it!

😜

oh, and everybody knows about poutine because this is Food Tab, Best Tab. BUT ALSO people in general culture often use poutine as a shorthand to make fun of canadians, or wish they WERE canadians, depending on how they feel about rich gravy on squeaky cheese curds.....

perhaps people don't do the same thing with disco fries to "reference" new jersey because we already had too much jersey shore (and that one episode of south park) shoved in our faces? it's just a theory i made up right now, because you asked, but it's all i got.

Are you taking the piss? Because unless you are Canadian and never left Canada there is no reasonable explanation for why someone would pick poutine over disco fries. Or not know what disco fries are. Think poutine but not sucky. Add malt vinegar and that's the best version of fries anywhere

i have ALSO never heard of "disco fries" where (geographically) are they consumed?

New Jersey.  Which exit, I couldn't tell you.

Disco fries are a Jersey staple, and they are inferior to poutine. Poutine: cheese curds and gravy and fries. Disco Fries: cheese and gravy on fries. With poutine, the curds add some texture. Disco fries are literally fries swimming in a melted cheese and gravy sauce.

But if you want an improvement for either dish, find a restaurant in the US South that makes disco fries or poutine, because no one in the north knows how to make gravy properly.


Umm they don't make gravy at those joints its more likely a can of sysco brand gravy.

Pittsburgh Steak Salad

I once ordered a "Steak Salad" from room service at a Pittsburgh Holiday Inn.

The meat and vegs were served on top of a large bed of fries, not like in the pic which shows the greens on the bottom.

Like I said, people in the North don't know how to make gravy.

This ain't Canada. . I don't wanna know what abomination gravy the British put on fries.

Peas out. The cheese fries look like shiat.

Those farkers should just stick to fish and chips.

It's the best of the choices, really, because none of them are poutine.

Seriously though: mushy peas on fries? Brits, your trash cuisine is...well, it's garbage. All of those look like tragic mistakes left on a dish line on a Friday night, when a server spills something over plates on an unloaded tray.

Ack! Another poutine apologist! How can any US citizen choose cheesy crappy curds of poutine over disco fries and malt vinegar. My mind is reeling

WHY do you assume the whole US country eats "disco fries"?

are you one of those people who believes that NYC/Jersey is the ENTIRE WORLD?  because that assumption is deeply incorrect. thank the gods.

Nope. Lived in many places. And by lived I mean either worked or spent months. That's Chicago, DC, NYC and upstate, Vermont. Also worked In London, extended stays in Amsterdam, Naples, Berlin. Never been to far west outside of brief stays in California and Hawaii. (Btw, London is where I got the malt vinegar taste, or do you think malt vinegar is just in jersey and nyc?)

So most my time has been in nyc, but certainly not all. I just thought disco fries were as common as say pizza or hotdogs.

just admit you're wrong about the ubiquity of these cheesy gravy fries. otherwise you WILL be acting like some self-centered new yorker....

and OF COURSE i don't think malt vinegar (on fried foods) is a particularly NYC thing! it's super associated with the UK. and it is delicious.

I just don't get it. Everyone appears to know about poutine. Like the most regional Canadian thing ever (other than hockey pucks and letterkenny). But disco fries are an obscure regional aberration? Like every place has their own take on cuisine. Pizza is as varied as it gets. But everyone knows what pizza is. Didn't Ben's chili bowl make some version of loaded fries in DC? Like chili on fries?

...


You know how I know you aren't serious?

You just said something in Jersey was superior to the rest of the country.

luna1580:


which is fine! jersey is allowed to have one special regional "jersey thing" food, and YOU are allowed to enjoy it!

If Jersey has one special regional "jersey thing" food, I think it should be their version of the Sloppy Joe.

NOT the ketchup-drenched loose-meat sandwich of the Midwest.
