No. 64 Truffled Chips from YOLO

Sure, maybe it's a sign that food trends have gotten a little out of hand when we begin ordering $9.50 platters of potato chips at a swanky Las Olas restaurant. But you only live once, after all. I say, who gives a flip if potato chips are considered cliche, fattening, or pedestrian!

Sort of like transforming an uninspired bowl of ice cream to a champagne granita, YOLO's version of the homemade potato chips breathes new life to the fat kid's after-school snack. Each slice of crispy fried potato is topped with melted dollops of blue cheese tangy enough to cause a bad case of rhinorrhea. Add some crisp salty bacon, flecks of rosemary and thyme and my fat inner child begins to squeal.
