Fries on a Friday

Aaaaaand we find ourselves at Ask For Janice … once again. This time, for one of my all-time favourite obsessions: Fries.

Ask For Janice | 50-52 Long Ln, London EC1A 9EJ

Let me explain: Most of my big life events include fries in some shape or form – and never intentionally. I had fries the day I was offered my dream job at my dream agency, I had fries when I saw Michelle Obama on her book tour, I was surprised with fries instead of cake on my favourite birthday and I shared fries on every first date that ended with a kiss.

It, therefore, might come as no surprise that I am quite particular about my fries. If they aren’t thin, golden and crispy, I don’t want them and I can’t for the life of me understand why anybody even bothered to invent potato wedges.

Birthday fries instead of cake for this one. Thank you.

Since having identified London as the place in the world that I could call home, naturally, there had to be a reoccurring routine involving fries. Fridays seemed like the perfect occasion: simple, reliable, and to the point.

Ask For Janice was a hop and a skip away from my agency, adding accessibility to the perfect mix of THE Friday ritual.

Their garlic fries – fresh, with a near-perfect consistency and enhanced by the AFJ seasoned salt – were always enjoyed with good company and mustard.

I have yet to find a place that does fries better than AFJ but quite frankly, I am not in a rush.
