French fry news
A new concept specializing in one of nature's most perfect foods is coming to Dallas. Called Surf'n'Fries, it's a quick-service chain restaurant chain founded in Croatia of all places, and it's opening its first U.S. outlet in Dallas-Fort Worth, where it will bring its creative and innovative approach to the standard French fry.
Surf'n'Fries sells gourmet fries in a cone-shaped package, with a choice of 15 sauces. It's a reinvention of the Belgian Fries concept, with specially designed packaging and a unique potato cut.
A spokesperson confirms that the concept will debut in Garland in early October, as a kiosk inside the Walmart Supercenter at 555 W Interstate 30, with another location opening in Prosper at the Walmart Supercenter at 500 Richland Blvd.
The restaurant places French fries on the podium they so rightfully deserve. "Fries are the best-selling food item in popular quick service restaurants," they say. "But while others typically serve them as a pairing to burgers, we put fries at the center of the meal."
Many claps for this.
The concept was founded in 2009 by entrepreneur and adventurer Andrija Colak and co-founder Denis Polic, who not only created a concept devoted to fries but also devised a portable container combining a cone for the fries; a pocket for whatever side you get; and a ring for your beverage.
This enables you to eat while walking or even surfing. Sometimes when you're surfing, you need a snack.
The chain currently has more than 60 outlets in 20 countries, including Austria, Dubai, Germany, Ireland, Norway, Vietnam, and Australia. America is their latest frontier.
One of the things that's furthered their expansion is the fact that they have a variety of restaurant models, including mobile, trailer, and in this case, store kiosk.
The menu includes classic fries as well as their unique curvy wedge, shaped almost like a Frito chip, making for a better vehicle onto which to lay out toppings.
Fries "toppings" include:
- Italian fries, with tomato and parmesan cheese
- shrimp fries, topped with fried shrimp and arugula
- pulled pork
They also sell nuggets, wings, mozzarella sticks, and "Surf Dogs" with toppings such as BBQ sauce, bacon, and pickled cucumber.
Another thing that makes them unique is their use of air fryers, which creates the desirable fried food texture but without oil.
