🍟 In Vegas, Every Day Can be Fry-Day as Frites Las Vegas Lands on The Strip

Side Dish Takes Center Stage as Frites Las Vegas Brings Back Nostalgic Flavor of Beef Tallow to Perfect the French Fry   

Opening June 24 at the Excalibur Hotel & Casino, Frites allows fry fans to bite, crunch and dip into The Strip’s first-ever French fry hotspot

 

Foodies across the world will rejoice over Frites Las Vegas – the first-ever French fry concept on The Strip, bringing back the richness of beef tallow for ultimate fry perfection. Frites Las Vegas, opening June 24, is the first original concept from Feel Good Brands, which has operated multiple franchises for more than 20 years in the Las Vegas valley.

“We want to really savor the fry – an item that in and of itself is a glorious thing – so we knew we had to master the craft,” said Feel Good Brands Founder Lincoln Spoor. “A lot of research went into creating what we think is the perfect fry – everything from the type of potato to the cut, but the most important factor was diving into the frying component and without a doubt, beef tallow brought the richest and most delicious flavor.”

Fry fanatics will rejoice as they bite into a crisp fry with just the right amount of crunch on the outside and perfect creamy texture on the inside, thanks to the unique triangular Frites cut that also allows for maximum dip-ability.

The menu features Original Frites Fry, which can also be dressed up as the Everything Bagel Mix Frites or the Double Ketchup Frites; guests can also upgrade to Truffle Frites for a richer flavor. The Frites Las Vegas menu boasts Frites Meals including Chips ‘N Dip including Deviled Egg Sauce with Thick Cut Potato Rounds, Castle Frites with Crispy Bacon, Cheddar Cheese, Sour Cream & Chives on top of Stubby Frites Fries, Sausage Gravy Frites topped with Breakfast Sausage & Black Peppered Gravy on top of Stubby Frites Fries and Nacho Frites with Yellow Queso, Cotija Cheese, Jalapenos, Red Onion and Cilantro on top of Stubby Frites Fries. House Pumps satisfy every flavor palette from the classics like Frites Fry Sauce and Spoor’s favorite, Buttermilk Ranch, to more Specialty Sauces such as Thai Chili, Deviled Egg, Nacho Cheese and Aji Crema. The sweet side of the menu allows guests to crunch into Churro-style Crinkle Cut Sweet Potato Fries with Whipped Malted Nutella Cream made with Coconut Oil or cool off with a Root Beer Float.

Original Frites and specialty frites are made with 100% beef tallow, bringing back the good ol’ way French fries were made when rendered beef fat was a staple of nearly every kitchen in America and was the “secret” ingredient to some of the world’s most popular French fries. In addition to the Original Frites, Frites Las Vegas offers a vegetarian options using peanut oil.

Taking the most popular side dish and giving it the spotlight it deserves, Frites Las Vegas has modernized the average French fry, transforming the frites into a portable and crave-able meal on-the-go with flavors that embrace Americana nostalgia and add a kick of international flair. Frites Las Vegas boasts an Instagram-able food truck façade that fires up June 24 inside Excalibur Hotel & Casino’s Castle Walk Food Court.

ABOUT HANS KLOK
Hans Klok, internationally acclaimed as The World’s Fastest Illusionist, has for years been entertaining huge audiences around the globe with his explosive and spectacular magic shows, and is renowned for the speed and agility of his illusions. Hans was born in a small town in Holland and first became fascinated with magic when his grandfather gave him a simple box of magic tricks for his tenth birthday, and he soon began giving magic shows at his friends’ birthday parties. With the help of his father, Hans began devising new illusions, and at the age of 14, he won the European Youth Magician Champion Trophy, followed by the Tommy Cooper Trophy two years later.  Having mastered the arts of conjuring and close-up magic, Hans began making a name for himself as a serious illusionist and started to get noticed for his legendary speed, which has since become his trademark. In 1990, he performed the world’s fastest transformations and won first prize at the Grand Prix of The Netherlands. He also won first prize at Germany’s most prestigious congress for professional magicians. In 1994, Hans played Las Vegas for the first time to great acclaim and appeared in major TV spectaculars in Germany and Holland. He then went on to play the legendary Loew’s Hotel in Monte Carlo, and had his own major TV spectacular in Holland. By 1996, Hans had developed his characteristic style of using fast, spectacular illusions, making a Mercedes disappear and reappear again a few moments later to the utter amazement of the audience. Hans also performed on NBC’s spectacular “The World’s Greatest Magic,” broadcast live from Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, where he performed for a national audience of 60 million people.  The following year, Hans amazed a stadium of 55.000 fans in Rotterdam as he let 25 full-grown soccer players emerge from a tiny box. In addition, he was the main attraction in ABC’s “Masters of Magic” show, broadcast from Monte Carlo and hosted by Princess Stephanie of Monaco.  In 2004, Hans scored a major first when he undertook the very first tour of China by an international artist, marking the first ever tour of China by an international artist. He performed at 64 venues in eight weeks to an audience of more than 250,000. Hans’ show, “Faster Than Magic,” premiered in January 2007 in Cologne, Germany.  Hans then performed his show “Beauty of Magic” at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, assisted live on stage by the world -amous Pamela Anderson. During the nine month run, he mesmerized more than 200,000 spectators with his magic. While being celebrated by the press as the world-wide leading magician, Hans was awarded as the “Magician of the Year 2007” in Los Angeles.   From 2013 to 2018 Hans has sold out numerous European tours and appeared on countless TV programs around the globe. One of the highlights was selling out Carre/Amsterdam for five weeks straight for three years in a row and two very successful tours in 2015/2016 and 2017/2018 with over 280,000 tickets sold.
