Active Orderer French dip SituationI was sitting at home minding my own business when I got a Facebook Messenger message from my friend Brian, simply the picture below (a French dip line item on a menu) and the statement, "I am debating skipping the aioli". Our conversation and review follows.
I jump into action and provide some coaching
Do skip it.
Or get it on the side at least.
Do not allow them to ****ing ruin your sandwich.
Where this is?
Had mayo on this one:

It was a creammeal.
"And back to this "creaminess" issue: you can see I had mayo on my finger; the problems had already started. "Brian
I got the aioli.
You can't properly rate their offering if you alter it from the suggested form.
Rate it zero and walk away.
His brother, Matt, joins in
Mark it zero smokey
Looks good. Where?
Do Canadians have French Dips?
[Matt is going to Canada]
Relieved you didn't get sweet potato fries.
[joking about my lack of joy for sweet potato fries and his love for them]
BrianI axed. Sweet potato fries were not an option
Brian's Meal Arrives
Take a "money shot" (dipped in hand close up. Jus-stained.
Nicely toasted. Meat is well.
Brian shares a money shot
Caramelized units, too. Cheese crispy or chewy?
BrianI would suggest that if you ever come here, you order something different.
What was wrong with it?
I have a need to know.Brian
The aioli was sub par. Not enough candied onions
Jus was bland
No option for sweet potato French fries.
it was terrible.
Insufficient onion amount.
Bland jus. Was the jus hot or thick?
Sweet potato fry failure.
You can't get 5 stars on the Ashbach CompuScore if you don't offer sweet potato fries.
thin is bad.
Narrows the field a great deal. Sad!
It's wrong to associate sweet potato fries with French dip sandwiches.Brian
That would be like saying it's wrong to associate the sandwich with the jus
tying these three things together is wrong.
it's not okay.
the french dip sandwich is standalone and the sides don't really matter if the sandwich quality is high. The pickle should suffice!!!
Jus is irrelevant to scoring
How could it be? That is a very silly idea.Brian
Friends don't let friends order French dip sandwiches pre-slathered with aoili. It isn't okay and should be avoided.
