Recently we headed to the Lady Luck (because when don’t we?) and were excited to try out their new special – pizza fries. Yes, it’s exactly as exciting as it sounds.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a snap of the menu like usual, but they’re fairly simple to explain. You’ve got sweet potato fries and hash browns, topped with onions, pizza sauce, and vegan cheese. Then it’s all melted together until it’s pretty delicious. It’s also pretty cute that they come out with a hashtag made with fries on top!
We had them as a shared side alongside our favourite Greenhouse burgers (yes – we were very full afterwards – what a shame that we just couldn’t bring ourselves to move for a couple of hours!). They were pretty damn good, I have to say. I’m really starting to love the taste of vegan cheese and the kind of stickiness when it melts – it’s like a classier version of singles cheese, which I have always loved.
The hash browns were not too salty or oily – I usually hate hash browns because they have those two attribute, but I actually enjoyed these. The flavour throughout was decadent and certainly reminded me of pizza. While the hash browns do seem like a random addition, since you don’t usually top pizzas with them, I’m not complaining. I liked them anyway.
They are substantial enough that they could easily serve as a full meal, and are also great for sharing. If you’re anything like us, there will be some closely-guarded battles over who can get the biggest and cheesiest fries! It’s a fantastic vegan dish and I loved it thoroughly. Next time we come, I’ll be crossing my fingers that these are still on the specials board.
