Eye Nosh: Cheese Fries For Grown-Ups
Word on the street was BOA Steakhouse's Truffled Cheese Fries were worth some real estate in my gut. A recent visit to BOA's Ocean-Adjacent location in Santa Monica proved that to be true.
This extra-large "family style" side dish expanded my idea of what makes "cheese fries" (and my waistline.) These BOA Artery Constrictors are classy and crafted for discerning adults -- they're awash in Gruyere cheese and feature truffle oil.
(They're probably not like the cheese fries found at The LA County or The O.C. Fair).
They're as delicious as they are calorically dense. Bring an extra mouth.
