I had to look that up too! It means:

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio gogogoch means; "St. Mary's Church in the hollow of white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio near the red cave."

Brings up a great point. This method is exactly what some restaurant do to get that extra crispy french fry. Frying them, allowing them to rest and then frying them a second time. Just be sure to let the oil come back up to temp before frying them a second time.
