Yeah, I really think there should be an “i” in there somewhere.
I just love this place on Hayes @ Laguna. Order up a large paper cone of the garlic fries and take your pick of seventeen different dips. We were there Friday night with our special glasses of Chimay and Leffe and tried out the curry ketchup, ginger orange mayo, chipotle remoulade, and balsamic mayo. A large order for $4.50 will get you a choice of two dips and a small order for $3.00 will get you one. We always get two larges and share around the various dips.
The great thing about all the dips is how you can choose a few to off-set the others. Our orange mayo was a nice, sweet foil to the chipotle remoulade. It’s even better when the big, sticky garlic dice drops from the fries into the dip cups — it adds yet another of layer of fabulous french fry flavor.
They’ve also got salads, sandwiches, and sweet and savory crêpes and they’re all named for artists. I’ve had the Van Gogh (classic sweet crêpe of butter, lemon juice, and sugar), the Claudel (caramelized apples, cinnamon, almonds, and whipped cream), the Daum (roasted pineapple, shaved coconut, brown sugar, toasted almonds, and whipped cream) and the Kandinsky (Nutella, fresh strawberries, and whipped cream).

    I really wish they had a good, standard aioli though. Since they don’t, I often end up in the bar at absinthe when I get a craving for fries in Hayes Valley…

    Watch out for the Chimay. More than twice the alcohol of regular beer. Had three at Frjtz one night and almost blacked out. I think that’s why Zeitgeist won’t do pitchers of Chimay.

    Yeah, we buy our Chimay by the 750 mL bottle and drink it slooooow. Love it, though.
