BeFries are fry perfection

Yes, I finally found them. French fry perfection. Although, in this case, it's Belgian fry perfection. BeFries has stolen my heart. There can be no other fries beyond this moment. So lucky we just happened upon this new (less than one year) establishment while exploring the streets of Brighton. And happier still I had resisted ordering fries at the local pub.

This family of siblings -- Joe, Dash, Chan and Ezda (and friend Harry) have created fry magic. Locally sourced potatoes, fresh-cut and double-fried are crisp on the outside and a melting soft on the inside. Not overcooked crisp -- but a crust like nothing I have ever experienced. Delivered in their paper cone, the BeFries are also a perfect IMAG3590temperature. Slowly making our way through the large order, they were still nicely warm to the very end. 

First timers, we indulged in 10 dipping sauces. Moving from one to another and then back again, I decided Green Peppercorn and the daily special, Jerk Mayo, were my favorites. I have never used ketchup on my fries and the idea of 'mayo' is just something I've never understood. However, at BeFries I broke my fry purist rules with total abandon. 

Open seven days a week, I wish these young fry fiends nothing but success. And who knows maybe franchises down the road will cross the great wide pond and find their way west. I lied when I said, "These might just be the fest fries ever!" No 'might' about it. They are the BEST! Vote for BeFries for Brighton & Hove Food & Drink Awards 2017. I already did!
