The potato batons you speak of are "churros de pomme de terre," per their ardoise that day.

Tico, L'Hédoniste, I am happy to read that we share some similar taste, John ;)

Omid: Somehow my comment got lost: yes indeed, but churros are often translated as Spanish doughnuts and these were more cruller-shaped, at least in the US.

Chrisos: Dlighted to follow your leads.

Omid Tavallai
