Fancy Your Fries with Duck Gravy Sauce

Fancy Your Fries with Duck Gravy Sauce
Text by Molly Dennis and photos by Christina Oxford

When you first walk into The Tattooed Moose in Charleston, South Carolina, you notice the customer-created graffiti signatures, spread across tabletops and stools. You also notice that all eyes are on you. Well, all animal eyes are anyway! A giant, taxidermy moose head is a wall feature, and sprinkled about, are other stuffed woodland creatures. (A line of baby ducklings waddle their way to the restroom.)

Speaking of ducks, though the décor is “to-die-for,” the locals come downtown for the duck-influenced menu. The pubs duck club sandwiches are accompanied by great beer and neighborhood bands, making a meal an evening to remember.

One of the main duck influenced sell-out items on the menu are the fries, prepared in duck fat. What could make these French fries even better? Dipping them in The Tattooed Moose’s duck fat gravy sauce. It adds the perfect creamy component to a crispy, salty French fry.

If you’re going to have fries, go all the way I say.
