in thread Fries are best with...

A lot of people here (my $here = "Utah";) mix one part mayo with one part ketchup to make what they call "Fry Sauce."

It's actually not bad. I'm guessing there are people in other places do it too, but I don't live other places so it's hard for me to say. ;-)

    Here in sunny NYC we call that "Fraunch Dressing" we drink it with "Peru" ;)
    There's more than one way to do it, just don't use my way.
      Fraunch fries and Peru, heh heh... "Gee Ricky, I'm real sorry your mom blew up!"

      Actually there is (at least used to be) a great Belgian-style frites place in the East Village on 2nd Ave at 7th St. Just a little hole in the wall called Pomme Frites, but they make these absolutely awesome double-fried potatos with dozens of sauces to choose from and serve them to you hot in a big paper cone for take-out. I fondly recall a spicy curry sauce and other pleasurable choices... mmmm...

      oh look somebody has a Web page about them...

        it and Beliges Frites (14th S& 5th A) are gone... weep

    That mixture can be bought in jars, labelled "seafood sauce" or "seafood dressing". It's used to make prawn cocktail (Do you have that in Utah?) but anyone who knows makes it the way you do.

    I can confirm that we too in the far reaches of Las Vegas also eat fry sauce. Mmmm... fry sauce... I like the excitment of ordering fry sauce in a different place to see what extra ingridient they will mix in. (BBQ sauce, relish, "assorted spices")

    This makes me laugh to read - my wife went to BYU, and one time we were at dinner with some of our friends from Utah when one asked for some fry sauce - I'd never heard of it, and got this really confused look on my face and my wife just started laughing at me.

    Fry sauce is actually one of my favorite options, although I voted for the bacon double cheeseburger. ;)

    And that poutine stuff sounds just nasty. <shudders>

    Arctic Circle used to give little packets (like Sweet & Sour Sauce cups at KFC) called "Fry Sauce". Damn that stuff is good (you have to mix it in just the right consistancy and with the right ingredients -- not just random stuff that you have lying in the ice box).

    Too bad Arctic Circle is gone.

      The original arctic circle owner "invented" fry sauce in Utah according to some lame article I was reading on "utahnics".

    When I worked in a Japanese restaurant we made a wing sauce much like that...
    Ketchup, mayo, about 50 50, add tabasco and paprika to taste.

    Hum, I used to put that on salads and call it thousand-islandless (in reference to the fact that if it also had pickle relish it would be thousand island dressing.)
