Since the state banned foie gras this past July, our Californian diets have missed a certain duck-based gluttony. Enter duck-fat fries: all of the tasty glory with none of the painfully inhumane treatment of animals. And in a time when In-N-Out's Animal Style fries have mated with carne asada fries to create all kinds of fried-spud-based debauchery, these duck-fat varietals add only salt, pepper and a sprinkling of herbage. The result? Perfectly crisp outside, creamy inside and a flavor that almost recalls a Peking duck's crispy skin. Add in Crow Burger Kitchen's house-made ketchup that resembles more of your mom's marinara than anything from a Heinz bottle (or any other of a plethora of dips offered for a measly half-buck each), and you've got something that will trump the latest piling of crap on top of flimsy frozen fries any day of the week.
