'french fry' on Serious Eats

Apps Only: Nopa in San Francisco

Nopa, often credited with remaking (and re-naming) the Western Addition neighborhood of San Francisco, showcases the glories of California cuisine: an emphasis on seasonal produce, close ties to local farms, and a casual, come-as-you-are vibe. We went for an apps-only meal of fries, calamari, flatbread, little fried fish, and more. More

We Eat Every Dipping Sauce at Pommes Frites

If you've ever been (or known) an NYU student, or if you've ever wandered around the East Village at midnight looking for a carb fix, you'll know Pommes Frites. The hole-in-the-wall on Second Avenue sells thick-cut Belgian fries served in paper cones, golden and crunchy and always hot. But while there's only one real order—the fries, of course—there are a few dozen sauces to choose from, ranging from simple ketchup and mayonnaise to stranger dips like wasabi mayo and "Irish Curry." Which ones are worth your time? We tasted them all to find out. More

Snack bars line most of the major shopping and socializing districts, while kiosks, stands, and carts can be found serving everything from chicken sandwiches and bitterballen (Dutch croquettes) to hot dogs and Vlaamse frites (Flemish fries).

A Sandwich a Day: Turkey and Egg at Giordano Bros. in San Francisco, CA

It seems against nature that a sandwich with french fries on it could possibly taste fresh, maybe even light. But somehow, the Pittsburgh transplants behind North Beach staple Giordano Bros. manage to make it work. It doesn't hurt that the hand-cut, skin-on french fries are respectable in their own right, nor that the thinly sliced meats come from Molinari's up Columbus. An homage to Pittsburgh, to be certain, but with all the best California sensibilities. More

Grilled Potato Wedges

Although not technically fries, these grilled spuds have all the qualities of any good fry—a nice crunchy exterior paired with some fluffy insides, but with the added flavors that a little smoke and char from the grill brings to the party. Quick and tasty, they're a perfect side to go with most meats coming off the flames More
