8. Sweet potato fries at LoKal Burgers and Beer
($4) tend to be longer, narrow, with a tapered end. The skins are left on, which tames the sweetness a little. You can order you burger with a half and half side of fries, meaning that you never have to choose between the sweet potato based and the regular type. They are super crispy, but never arrive overcooked or greasy.
7. You can't show up at Pascal's On Ponce
and simply order a plate of fries. In fact, you'll have to select a specific item off of the "Bistro Menu," or lunch menu. Get the Mussels Mariniére, or a sirloin burger filled with braised short ribs; for traditionalists, choose the
classic steak frites
will be rewarded with the truest local representation of what actually constitutes a "French fry." These pommes frites
have a firm exterior shell, and soft potato centers lurking beneath.
