I Died at Lord of the Fries

Figuratively, obviously. Or I wouldn't be here, entertaining and inspiring you all with my witty ramblings and delicious food...

I was in Melbourne for one day recently for Blogopolis. Not knowing where or how or what, or if it was even possible, I demanded Veggie Dad take me to Lord of the Fries... I was sick of seeing my Melbourne friends tweeting about it and not getting any myself. Do you know how damn hard it is to get a decent veg burger where I'm from?

GAH.

Anyhoo, after a lot of Google Mapping on the Skybus after the plane to find out the location of the Holy Grail in relation to our hotel, it was decided. Post-Blogopolis, I was going to make Lord of the Fries my bitch. And I did:

Every time I see their Twitter bio, I sing Faith No More songs in my head ALL DAY.


I was that excited I ordered a Mega Meal Deal AND a side of nuggets. I am disgusting. The Big Mark burger called my name, and when I got home and ate it I cried with delight at their generous pickle-giving.

The uber-fun part was deciding which sauce to eat on my fries... American, Belgian, Indian, Parisian, Thai, Vietnamese, African, Asian, French Canadian, Italian or Mexican? There was a thousand people behind me and I felt the familiar panic of wanting to try them all but having to hurry up and choose because people are waiting and ahhhhhhhhhh oh my god quick which one oh dear sweet baby cheesus lord in heaven I don't know "I'll have the Thai please". It happens often. But eating satay sauce on fries doesn't (at least not in my world), so I figured I'd try. Phew. Glad I did.

But then they asked me what kind of sauce I wanted on my nuggets.

It just so happened that I sat next to the cutest girl in the room at Blogopolis and she offered to get me coffee. I fell in love on the spot and followed her on Twitter. She happened to see my Lord of the Fries tweet, and happened to tell me she did PR for Lord of the Fries and happened to tell me she had some free burger vouchers for my readers should they happen to want some.

I have five vouchers to give away, and if you want one, just leave a comment here and tell me what damn sauce you would have chosen, had you been me umming and ahhhing and holding up the queue. First five in, best burger dressed.

*Disclaimer: I received a VIP card to Lord of the Fries to get discounts for the rest of this year in amongst the vouchers for readers. Cool, huh? Just another reason to move to Melbourne..........

  6. Easy. I would have chosen the African Sauce. It's AMAZING and heavily addictive with the tomato sauce, mayo and onion.

  9. I am from Adelaide and went to Lord of the Fries when I was in Melbourne in March. I literally haven't stopped going on about it and am going back in October. I had satay sauce and now it's all we have on fries at home. Next time I want to try the gravy and cheese but not sure if it's dairy cheese or not. I will probably get two fries to try two more sauces.
    It obviously impressed me.
