Not All Food Stalls Are the Same/どの屋台も同じというわけではない

In the Shiozawa area of Minami Uonuma city, Niigata prefecture, the Shiozawa Matsuri (Festival) is held on July 14 through 16.

Today, on July 15, my daughter went to the festival in the morning with a friend of hers. When she came home, she reported she liked two particular foods. One is spa bo (deep-fried spaghetti sticks), and the other is potato fry (french fries). She insisted that I should try the potato fry because it was hot and delicious. So, I decided to give it a try. My daughter, the friend, and I went to the festival again in the evening. (My daughter and I went to the festival yesterday, too.)


Spa bo:

This particular one is curry-flavored. My daughter told me that two other flavors were available, sugar and salt.

This is the food stall she was talking about.

I ordered two bags, and the owner started to squeeze potato paste(?) from the machine, and put the resultant potato sticks into the fryer.

Just as my daughter remarked, the potato fry was very hot and delicious.
