Lunch at Fancy Franks

Well, we were on our way to Patois for brunch but then realized too late that it was not open for brunch on Saturday. Since we were already downtown, we decided to check out Fancy Franks.

It’s a small-ish place on College and it had communal seating – which seems to be a trend nowadays. Rub elbows with a stranger! Well, since it was a hotdog place, I didn’t really mind.

At first, you are overwhelmed with a big selection of different types of franks. I ended up ordering the Fancy 90210 which is bacon, avocado and tomatoes on a frank. BP ended up ordering the chili and poutine.

You are also able to customize your franks with these toppings.

The Fancy 90210 was delicious. And if you go there hungry, make sure to order a side because that one frank is not going to fill you up. As heard from my neighbour, he could eat another one! The franks taste like the meat in sausage rolls.

The poutine was delicious but tasted like regular poutine. To me, poutine is..well…poutine. The only time I would ever notice a difference is when the poutine uses different potatoes instead of fries or they use shoe string fries (don’t do that!!). They also have different types of poutine you can order.

The chili was also good but again, it tasted like chili to me. It was very meaty – not too liquidy which is good. I ended up using the leftovers in mac and cheese.

All in all, it was a good place to go. I don’t have a mouth big enough to eat those fancy burgers but with franks, it’s small enough to fit. Haha.
