Today, I thought I would write about my favorite french fries around town. Here are four places where I look forward to indulging in fries:
- Bourbon Steak at the Princess Resort– The first time I had these fries, I was in heaven. They are fried in duck fat and served to diners as an amuse bouche. There are three varieties of fries – paprika, herbed and salted – and each comes paired with a different dipping sauce. There is an truffle aioli, a barbecue style and a special ketchup and all three are delicious.
- Cafe Bink – The fries at Cafe Bink are also outstanding. They come wrapped in a paper cone and are crispy and delicious outside and tender inside. Similarly to Bourbon Steak, there are three dipping sauces to choose from, including a ketchup, and aioli and an green herb sauce. While all of the sauces were excellent, the green sauce is my favorite.
- Zinc Bistro – Zinc offers two versions of french fries to choose from and you cannot go wrong with either. The first is the standard bistro fries served upright in a metal cup. They are dusted with a little salt, paprika and marjoram and come with two sauces. The second, more extravagant version comes with truffle and parmesan cheese. Indulgent and delicious.
- Blu Burger Grille (North Scottsdale’s Summit Location) – The Blu Burger Grille not only makes my favorite turkey burger, but they also have my favorite sweet potato fries. The are generously sized and manage to be crisp and tender at the same time. The taste of the sweet potato really comes through with just the right amount of salt.
We are always on the lookout for great fries, so please feel free to share your favorites in the comments section.
