Pretty Good Opening Paragraph to Your Novel...

"Perhaps not the best but easily the most welcome meal that i have ever had in my life. Fresh roti, goat stew, cauliflower curry. On the Rhotang descent into Koksar, I came across this tiny place of stacked stone and wood beams and parachute tarps. it was lit with a single propane light and was filled from the wood smoke of the ovens. It was warm, and welcome, and was an oasis on a hard ride."

Good food here (Clifton General Store/Main Street Pub): Clifton, VA




It's a popular spot for riders.

I destroyed the French Dip sandwich last Saturday - too quickly to get a photo. Next time, I'll post something.

The fried pickles are also terrific. I haven't tried the hot chocolate yet but I'll be sure to do so next time we get a cold spell.

Here's what I have - the first shows a little better the interior of the tent and the kitchen area. The second is the outside of the tent lit only by the moon and the solitary light within. This incidentally was the only light I had in the whole descent of the Rohtang; a wire rubbed raw on the headstock resulted in the demise of the remaining squadron of lumens that my Enfield could muster.

Cooked in duck fat, the fries, I'd say blanched and fryed again with that perfect crust so they didn't soak up the gravy and get soggy. The white, undyed cheese curds had that extra saltyness , almost a bryned taste. The gravy, a not overpowering beef flavor, was nice an hot to achieve a perfect melt of the curd.....

Frying fries in duck fat is very trendy in Quebec currently, so you're probably exactly correct.
