Serendipity3 is taking the french fry game to the next level. To celebrate their reopening and National French Fry Day, the iconic Upper East Side restaurant crafted the World’s Most Expensive French Fries.



The fries ring in at a staggering $200. However, Chefs Joe Calderone and Frederick Schoen-Kiewert understood the assignment and delivered the most extravagant fries ever.

Making the $200 Fries

To start, the chefs use Chipperbec Potatoes blanched in none other than Dom Perignon Champagne and J. LeBlanc French Champagne Ardenne Vinegar before cooking them in pure goose fat. 

Of course, there has to be truffle. Actually, why not have a trifecta of truffle? The fries are seasoned with Guerande Truffle Salt, tossed in Urbani Summer Truffle Oil and topped with shaved Black Summer Truffles from Italy. 

Additionally, the fries get a shaving of Crete Senesi Pecorino Tartufello, a sheep’s milk cheese with black truffles. To accompany the fries are a Mornay sauce, Black Truffle Butter and a Gruyere Truffled Swiss Raclete.

To add just a pinch more of luxury, the fries are dusted with 23K edible gold dust.

Top 5 Fast Food Fries:

Now, not everyone can afford to drop a couple of Benjamin’s on fries. But what about a couple of… Washington’s? Honestly, I think some potatoes, oil and salt do the job just fine. Here is my definitive, 100% accurate ranking of fast food fries:

1. McDonald’s

A true classic; you always know what you are going to get with McDonald’s. They have just the right level of saltiness and a solid crisp to each bite. Have you ever met someone who doesn’t like their fries?

2. Five Guys

While their regular fries are still amazing, I always opt for the Cajun seasoning. Fried in peanut oil, they have a nice blend of crispy edges with soft potato. Plus, they always put extra in the bag too, so you can snack on them on the drive home without breaking into your real order.

3. Chick-fil-A

There is just something so special about Chick-fil-A’s waffle fries. The texture paired with any one of their sauces hits the spot every bite. Not to mention, they are another reliable choice.

4. Arby’s

Another fun fry option, Arby’s curly fries are always perfectly seasoned. But, sometimes they lack the crisp-factor. Still nothing beats when you get the longest curly fry of the batch.

5. Del Taco

Rounding out my top five has to be Del Taco. I know I might get some criticism for this, but the Mexican restaurant really knows how to bake a good batch of crinkle cut fries.
