Another in my ongoing reviews of great hidden eateries, this one takes us a little off the beaten path to Kenora, Ontario.
To locals and the throngs of Manitobans that invade the little lakeside town of Kenora there has long been a meeting place that everyone can agree on. If you have ever been to Kenora you know exactly what I am talking about.
The Ye Olde Chip Truck, or simply The Chip Truck is just the place to satisfy an afternoon craving or simply to fill the void after a long day of fishing on Lake of the Woods. Their slogan says it all, 10,000 Seagulls can’t be wrong and who am I to doubt their logic.
For a few dollars and normally more than a few minutes waiting in line. You are presented with a hot steaming container of fried potato perfection. Using specialty potatoes, and double fry technique they ensure that each and every chip comes out super crispy on the outside and perfectly cooked on the inside.
Sprinkled with copious amounts of salt and in Canadian fashion splashed with white or malt vinegar. They are a yummy treat worth pulling off the Trans-Canada Highway for. I always make sure that at least once a summer on my trip home to Fort Frances, that I take the long way home and make my pilgrimage for those super crispy and delicious chips.
After all, like the sign by the lake says. 10,000 Seagulls can’t be wrong.
