The most expensive fries in the world – level 1

28-07-2021 07:00

A famous restaurant in New York, US, serves the most expensive fries in the world.

The potatoes are high-quality. The chef boils them quickly in French champagne. Then, he fries them with French goose fat. He tops them with truffle salt and truffle oil.

Guests eat the fries from a crystal plate. The chef puts gold on the top. Guests can eat the gold, too.

The fries cost 200 dollars. Many guests want to try them. The restaurant is booked for the next two months. The restaurant also makes the most expensive milkshake, sandwich, and cake in the past.

Difficult words: serve (to give a food or drink to someone), high-quality (something very good), truffle (a very expensive mushroom which grows in some places, and dogs or pigs help find it), book (to make a plan to visit somewhere).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
