When I heard that New York Fries might be entering the Hong Kong market, I was going NUTS.
That was, until I found out about Ireland’s Potato. They serve some serious made-to-order fries and apparently, they are also very serious about their potato. Here’s their slogan:
“There are two things in the world that can’t be joked: 1) Marriage and 2) Potato”
I dunno man … as much as I appreciate their attitude towards their product, and the fact that there might be some truth to the slogan, it just doesn’t resonate with me. Its one thing to try and be all cute and funny with a slogan … then again, I wiki’d the name and found out the name was based on a famine in Ireland, where the Irish people were so dependant on potato that everything went fubar when sheetz hit the fan … nevermind, back to the food …
During rush hour, expect to wait about 15 minutes, but its definitely well worth the wait. I hear the hotdog’s not great, but if you’re only got HKD 55 bucks with you, treat yourself to the Ireland’s Potato Special Cheese Fries and the Chicken Nuggets. Even if it means, you’re walking home.
You’ll thank me.
Unfortunately though, I also downed a 750ml bottle of water soon after. MSG overload? I think so. But hey, you can’t have it both ways.
Here’s what I’d like to say to New York Fries if they’re planning to enter Hong Kong: umm, think again.
