Dayton's 6 most unique and yumtastic French fries
By Amelia Robinson
Crispy, crinkled, curly and/or covered in cheese, Daytonians love a good French fry.
Not every French fry is a cut from the same potato. So here we highlight some of the area’s most unique fries.
What is ooey, gooey and probably not so heart smart? The Dublin Pub’s cheese fries ($8.99).
The description says it all: “Thick cut wedge fries smothered with white wine sauce, crispy bacon, topped with a blend of cheeses and baked to perfection.”
There’s a reason it is one of the restaurant’s top-selling appetizers.
It is hard to go wrong with
To understand the wonder behind Corner Kitchen's fries, one must first know the back story. Corner Kitchen Chef Jack Skilliter said that every version of the new restaurant’s menu included poutine from the beginning. But he had high expectations while crafting the recipe: The fries needed to be thick-cut and substantial enough to stand up to the hearty gravy, while staying crispy.
That's how the perfect fries were born. They are double-fried so they stay crispy on the outside and delicate on the inside. After they come out of the fryer, the fries are coated in the most delicious, herbacious seasoning.
There are no cheese curds, but Sea Jax honors Quebec with its version of poutine.
Delicious brown gravy, shredded cheese and tender top round beef cover crispy French (Canadian) fries ($12.99).
Want kids to eat their veggies? Serve ‘em an order of Wheat Penny’s divinely crispy eggplant fries with yogurt sauce.
As if you can get enough fries.
Head over to Meadowlark, Wheat Penny’s sister restaurant also owned by acclaimed chef Elizabeth Wiley, for a cone of piping hot garlic frites ($5.95). Watch out vampires.
