A while ago, when we were out with some friends, a girl who had recently done a car trip down to New York City brought up loveable homey eatery Denny’s. They aren’t such a big thing up here in Canada, so going to one is kind of one of those cross-border treats, much like shopping at an Anthropologie store or eating a 5th Avenue Candy Bar*.
Anyway, while driving through Buffalo, she and her boyfriend stopped in at a Denny’s to enjoy a 3 AM breakfast where they discovered something unusual on the menu – potatchos or, in non neologistical terms, potato chip nachos.
Now, there is no doubt in my mind that the creation of potatchos stemmed from a rather drunken/stoned night in the Denny’s creation kitchen, but I have to say, in spite of everyone else’s disgust at their existence, I’m kind of intrigued.
I mean, kettle fried potato chips? Good. Sausage? Good. Bacon? Good. Peppers? Good. Cheese? Good. If all these ingredients are normally yummy, then why would they be gross together?
Is the existence of potatchos a sign that the apocalypse is coming or is it a sign that we’re unreasonably prejuidice against new snack food? What say you, readers?
*Why don’t we have either of these things here? Stupid Canada, denying me good chocolate and cute tops!
