So If There’s Something You’d Like To Try. If There’s Something Perhaps A Fry.

I wouldn't exactly call myself a lover of fries. Don't get me wrong, if there's gravy present, or if they are inside a Cali burrito, then I will take them down with no remorse. But fries on their own are certainly not my first choice. With that being said, the Long Beach Fry is an exception to this rule. They may very well be best god dam fries west of Vancouver. The ratio of outer crispiness to potato filling is perfect. They are so good, putting gravy on them may actually ruin the dish. This last statement is false and is used for dramatic effect only. Gravy makes everything taste better: fact. If you head due west and go until you can go no further, you will surely find yourself in Tofino. Your first instinct will be to rent a surf board. I suggest you hit up Long Beach Lodge's lounge instead. Accept the fact that you will never be a surfer,  and dive into a plate of those deep fried bitches. Surf's fucking up mates. 

Note: Don't burn drift wood in Tofino. The locals get extremely  Local on yo ass when you do such things. Writing frightening verse, to a buck-toothed girl in Luxemburg. Long Beach Lodge. Tofino, BC. ♫ Ask. [audio:Ask.mp3]

As soon as I saw this style of Yam fry I felt this place had to be related to the Cactus Club in some way. I'm not sure if this is true but the yam would say otherwise. I know my yams. Either way, Shelter in Tofino, BC. makes an awesome Halibut Burger to go with these crispy yam fries. The older I get the more I am beginning to really like the fish.  I suppose it's hard not to like anything that has been battered and deep fried. What a wonderful treatment.
