Culver's always has better fries than McDonald's, at McD's you've got probably a 20% chance of getting good fries.

I RARELY eat FF, let alone McDs. But their Coke and their fries can not be beat. And if I'm going slumming and eating FF, I'm going to find the skankiest, sluttiest girl on the block.
Curly Fries from JiTB bitch slap MCD's fries all over the place. If I lived in a place where the best available fast food fries were McDonald's, I'd move.

Hm, I haven't tried their curly fries yet. Their regular fries are pretty meh, better than BK or Wendy's, but that's probably as far as I'd go.

BK in general sucks to me, but their fries are awful even compared to the rest of their food which is pretty terrible. JiTB it's about curly fries and the bacon cheddar potato wedges.

BK fries USED to be good, but they re-tooled them in the mid-2000s to try and make them more like McDonald's, failed, tried again a few years later, and made them even worse. Same deal with their old chicken "tenders" that I liked, tried to copy McD's and ruined what used to be a good menu item.
The new Ch'King is good, and I've heard they re-vamped the Whopper and improved it, but I haven't tried once since then.

Hardee's curly fries are very solid too.
McD's fries are awesome in that "so shitty it's great" way.

I don't think I've had curly fries from Hardee's either, LOL.
Curiously, there's only one Carl's Jr in the Seattle area.

McD fries are not shitty. It’s best fast food fries. People are entitled to their wrong opinions but no sane person can deny McD fries are really good.

In-N-Out fries are shitty. Nothing will change that. Besides McD fries, I like Arby’s curly fries, Popeye’s fries, and Checkers battered fries although I haven’t eaten at Checkers in over a decade so I don’t know if their fries are still the same. CFA waffle fries are great too but it’s different experience.

Umm, I'm not sure how long its been for you, but recently McDonalds changed their french fry recipe and yes, it can easily be beat. By just about everyone.
And they even changed how they mix their Coke too, and it sucks ass. Inferior to just about everyone else. I hate it.

I recently learned that there are 2 CFA locations in Canada, both in Toronto, there's also another coming in Waterloo. One of the locations isn't far from me, but not very convenient either, I doubt I'll go any time soon, not that curious about chicken sandwiches to be honest...

Finally remembered to stop by the Japanese grocery store to pick up some Japanese mayo. Definitely a more intense flavor. Can't wait to do an egg salad sandwich with this stuff

I've seen that stuff in the H-Mart here and it weirds me out.

Yeah, but... bags of mayo? With a baby on them? Weird.

Mayo nasty AF anyway, so it's not like I'm gonna try it.
It's the secret behind why Japanese egg salad sandwiches are the best version. I was like why is Bourdain fawning over a Japanese convenience store egg sandwich?

I'm late to the game but now I'll be an egg salad baller

Saw this at Costco and figured why not. Ingredients seemed ok. Actually pretty tasty if you need a quick snack in a jiffy.

There's a few brands of bagged Indian shelf food, and I've been pleased with all of them. They're tasty and quick.

Split a BK Ch'King today - Good portion of food, the half sour pickles were an interesting touch. Bun had a good chew.

Overall 3.5/5. Solid fast food item.

Trying to eat healthier so tried Sweetgreen recently. Have tried the chicken pesto salad and the Shroomami.

Both really delicious. Fast service. Everything was very fresh, flavorful, but a bit pricey. It's $13 and change plus tax per salad. But this certainly ain't no McDee's or Wendy's quality salad. It's legit.
