The most expensive fries in the world – level 2

28-07-2021 07:00

A famous restaurant in New York, US, serves the most expensive fries in the world. The restaurant did it to celebrate National French Fry Day.

The chef makes the dish with high-quality potatoes. He boils them in French champagne for a short time. Then, he fries them in French goose fat. The chef seasons the fries with truffle salt, and he uses truffle oil, too.

He serves the fries on a crystal plate. Then, he puts truffle cheese on the top, and he sprinkles the dish with edible gold dust.

The fries cost 200 dollars and the restaurant is fully booked for the next two months. The same restaurant also made the most expensive milkshake, most expensive sandwich, and most expensive dessert.

Difficult words: season (to add salt, pepper, herbs, or other spices to food), truffle (a very expensive mushroom which grows in many places such as France, and dogs or pigs help find it underground), sprinkle (to put very small pieces of something on something else), edible (something which you can eat).
