Foodspotting Friday: Fried Frenzy

Foodspotting Friday gets inspiration from deep in the heart of Texas.

“Fried pickle chips?”


That’s how food conversations often go when the EcoSalon team is on the road, and this week we’ve been checking out all the local specialties Austin has to offer. So fried pickle chips were clearly a must. Verdict? They taste just like you might expect a fried pickle to taste.

Which brought up the question, “What else can you fry?” Plenty of things. And although we’re not huge fans of fried food, we can’t really help but ogle at all the odd things that people put in a fryer and subsequently on their plate.

So in honor of our Texan stint and adventurous eating, this week’s Foodspotting Friday is all about fried foods.
