(Popeyes cajun fries with garlic mayonnaise as dip)
I’m currently addicted to cajun fries from Popeyes. I’ve been trying (hard) to replicate this by using/modifying this recipe, but no success. The effort amounted to previous attempts to replicate Jollibee’s chicken joy, KFC’s original recipe, Razon’s halo halo, etc. There must be a secret ingredient and whipping, of course. My attempts would sometimes result in a better version. But among these replication projects, I’ve never equated or surpassed the yumminess of street fishballs, squidballs, and the like. It must be the germs.

Hindi lang germs. Yung pawis na galing sa kili-kili nung nagluluto ang nagpapasarap nun. >: D
popeyes branches are rare here in the philippines. i wonder why..
Pahingi? 😛 Nakakatakam naman. There’s no Popeye’s here anymore. 😐 Or maybe I just don’t know kung san meron. Hehe. 🙂
It must be the germs! haha No matter how much we try, there’s really something delicious about street foods, just don’t ask where and how they prepare it. Sometimes, it’s good to be not in the know.
I used to work at Jollibee and I thought I could learn the secrets of making their famous chickenjoy or even just the spaghetti sauce, but I failed. Everything was delivered already preapred—the breading for the chicken, the powder to make the gravy with, and the sauces of their spaghetti and palabok.
hindi yata nag-click ang popeyes dito. bigla tuloy ako natakam sa fries.
alam mo ba yung anak ko e weird. kumakain ng fishballs ng walang sauce! e nasa sauce nga yung sarap e.andun yung germs at…
ugh, photos like this makes me want to call up for deliveries at this unholy hour. 🙂
I rememebered meron popeye malapit sa ofc pero yun nga bigla rin nawala. I love their biscuits. I wonder kung saan pa merong syang branch dito. 🙂
Popeyes is my favorite chicken house period 🙂 Cajun cooking rocks, tastes better than the boring KFC. I’d pay more for Popeye’s anytime 😉
lol…definitely the germs for the fishballs. yeah, i’ve tried cooking the fishballs and even making the sauce, it just doesn’t taste the same. anyone wants to send me a jolly hotdog? i’m craving for one…lol.
Oh, i’m craving for potato wedges, buti na lang nakabili ako ng baby potatoes nung isang araw.
funny but the ads above the image is lose 30 lbs and you are showing us this calorific food.
never tried it. you know i haven’t really tried to replicate any thing from restos. btw, i think they have a cookbook to make fastfood recipes at home.
I have a feeling it’s good ‘ol fast food grease. It’s that magic oil that they fry everything in! I don’t know how your Cajun Fries of choice tastes exactly, but maybe if you used some seasoned salt, that might make them yummier! (Hi, J!) 🙂
IT IS the germs. ahahhaha!
naalala ko tuloy yung onion rings ng popeye’s. it was our favorite. too bad there’s no peopeye’s here anymore. we try to make na lang onion rings at home. but you’re right, some things can;t be replicated!
sayang wala ng popeye sa makati
haha! my friends and i used to freak each other out as we try to guess the secret ingredients to our favorite street foods! the grosser, the better. 😀
aba….tinapatan ng popeyes fried yung arby’s curly fries ko…haha!
who doesn’t love fries? 🙂
gosh, i love french fries. totally. i try every brand 🙂
I love POPEYE’s fries too 😦 too bad they don’t have branches in the Phils. anymore. I only get to eat that when we’re in HK airport.
Yep, germs ang biggest contributor sa mga fishballs, chicken balls, squidballs, taho, dirty ice cream, scramble, etc. Good germs kasi hindi tayo nagkakasakit sa pagkain ng street food. LOL!
I love Popeye’s too but so sad that they don’t have it here in Pinas anymore. Just like u8mypinkcookies, the last time I had Popeye’s was when I visited HK.
I also like KFC’s fries. Unlike you, hindi ko mareplicate. Kaya nagpapadeliver nalang ako. Haha.
they sell this kind of fries in the supermarket which is like KFC’s.. try looking for FRENCHIES ZESTY COATED FRIES.. 🙂 basta the name is something like that. A pack would cost around 65-70 bucks only and ang dami na nya!
McDo’s Twister fries are back in Manila, and I’ve been having my fill before it’s gone again. I just hate it when it gets under my tongue. Ang hirap tanggalin. 😀
