|No more home-cut fries|
There is a little shop on the Miramar Peninsula called Huckle & Co. that we enjoy going to because they make these wonderful, home-cut fries. I've actually mentioned the place before as the fries reminded me of the kind of fries you'd get at a chip wagon in Ottawa. So we got there at about 7:00 p.m., placed our order and were told that it would be about a half hour as they were busy. No problem, their fries are worth the wait...or so we thought.
It didn't dawn on us, until we returned for our order that we didn't recognise any of the staff who were in there. Then, while still waiting, Kristie noticed, that on their menu, they had covered up the word "home" on their "home-cut" fries and replaced it with the word "thick". Which got our fri-die senses tingling. We still had a few minutes to kill before our order, so we went outside and that is when we noticed a...notice posted on the window that said Huckle & Co. was under new management, and they weren't making the home-cut fries.
How can I put this, without sounding overly dramatic....NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, sadly, they had switched to McCain superfries, or some variant thereof.
We were supremely disappointed.
On the bright side however, the fish, which was crumbed tarakihi, was better than other fish we've had there under the new owners.
Still, we don't think that we'll be going back any time soon, unless they bring back their home-cut fries.
