Food for thought

So I’m sitting here eating my spaghetti with homemade marinara for the fourth time this week and I start to read the package to our favorite tortilla chips–Mission Tortilla Strips which we affectionately  refer to as, that’s right, “strippers.” But that’s beside the point. My point is, what is restaurant style anyway? Can you even buy non-restaurant style chips? What makes them restaurant? Wikipedia didn’t seem to know. Do you? Even though they say restaurant they really aren’t what you get at a good Mexican restaurant. They are nothing like Ixtapa’s chips. The only restaurant that serves these type of restaurant style chips is The Mayan–yuck.

And while we are at it, what are home style fries? And what is the difference between New York style cheesecake and just cheesecake?

  1. I saw your comment on my cousin Mari’s blog and I thought it was hilarious because I used to watch Daren’s Dance Grooves and Center Stage too!!!
    Very funny post here too. Restaraunt style chips, home style fries, and New York style cheesecake… just one of life’s mysteries.

  2. Ahhh…we must be sisters! I had the exact same thought last week when I was reading our chip bag. It’s stupid!

  3. It’s my understanding that “restaurant style” means fried in oil, instead of baked, “homestyle” fries have peel still on parts of them, and New York cheesecake has a special kind of cream cheese- and it makes a person fatter than regular too =)

  4. I thought homestyle fries just meant that they weren’t curly or cajun fries but I don’t know for sure…
