“It’s a giant baked potato **, but a GLORIOUSly baked potato.” And I don’t know what type, but I’m guessing something like a giant Yukon Gold steamed and baked to creamy. Tender, but always with a perfect structure, ”he said.

Steve shared photos of his meal, which was a potato served with cheese and ham, in the photo, and said it was the best potato he's ever had

“Seriously, this was the best potato ever made by human hands, and we got it to what I have to assume is the French equivalent of a ‘Chili’. Words cannot express my astonishment, ”he added.

He also described the dishes of his diners with the same enthusiasm. and it wasn’t long before the French heard of Steve’s enthusiastic review of a fast food restaurant.

Most of them couldn’t believe that Steve had been blown away by a fast food chain while on vacation in France, especially known for its high-end cuisine.

“I’m sorry If La Pataterie is the best restaurant for you, America must be the worst place to eat on earth,” said one.

‘Seriously? You come to visit France, the homeland of gastronomy, and the most amazing restaurant you have found is a chain, ”laughed another.

“Installed in a building similar to a factory warehouse? It’s a good chain, okay, for a cafeteria, but you can find much more amazing places to eat – in FRANCE, ”they added.

“If you want to taste French cuisine … this is not the right place,” said one of them.

“The guy comes to France and his tasting reference is Pataterie. My France hurts, ”said another.

People laughed at Steve recommending similar French fast food chains, claiming they were high end

Others have laughed at Steve by recommending similar chains that are considered by the French to be low-end restaurants.

“Wait until you meet Chez Paul at a station during a rail strike with wet ground and a dry salmon sandwich or Mie Caline,” one said.

“Steve, you’re absolutely roasted by French Twitter, it’s awesome.”

“Have you ever tried Courtepaille? Or Buffalo Grill ?? What about Flunch, ”asked another.

“We have another French channel which is incredible. It’s called McDonald’s France, ”said another.

“If you will allow me, I suggest you try the Courtepaille restaurant. One of the best pieces of French gastronomy that you will ever be able to eat, ”said one of them, speaking of a similar channel.

However, many people have come to Steve’s defense and said that as long as he enjoys the Potato Plant, that is all that matters.

‘Thanks for your thread, it was hilarious from a French point of view, but in a really lovely way! You made my day, thank you, ”said one of them.

“Let the man savor his potato,” said another.

“It was pure gold,” wrote one.
