Old Fries + Waffle Iron = Awesome Pull-Apart Waffle Fries

J. Kenji López-Alt 21 comments

There's nothing much more depressing than discovering that what once was a heap of crisp-on-the-outside-fluffy-in-the-middle, potatoey treats has become a uniformly mushy, grease-laden mound of sadness. And that's really what old, soggy fries are. But no more. For I have discovered what might be the absolute best way to reheat fries: in the waffle iron. More

Eat This Now: Kimchi Fries With Pulled Pork From Banh Mi Boys in Toronto, ON

Michael Nusair 6 comments

As the name implies, Banh Mi Boys is known primarily for their take on banh mi sandwiches. However, the best thing on the menu, surprisingly enough, is not a sandwich at all -- it's fries. Specifically, kimchi fries, a decadent creation that finds a healthy portion of French fries topped with pulled pork, mayo, green onions, and of course, kimchi. More

Apps Only: Nopa in San Francisco

Lauren Sloss 1 comment

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

New York The Serious Eats Team 26 comments

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

Snapshots from Amsterdam: The Best Street Food

J. Kenji López-Alt 59 comments

There's an excellent snacking culture in Amsterdam, fueled, no doubt, by the equally excellent drinking and consuming-of-other-legal-narcotics culture. 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

A Sandwich a Day Lauren Sloss 1 comment

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

Serious Eats Joshua Bousel 10 comments

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
