Best home fries in Southern Maine?
I need a recommendation for where I can get good home fries. I'm biased in that I grew up in NYC where home fries are sliced or cubed potatoes with green peppers, onions and blacked flavor bits comprised of questionable but oh so tasty remnants from the grill. Sometimes there is so much grease that they stick together. mmmmm
I've been to Becky's, Uncle Andy's, and Simple Simons to name a few local greasy spoons, and all have the same kind of cubed home fries that are a little too tame and tidy for me. Any suggestions?
I second the Porthole's homefries. The ones at Bintliffs are pretty good, too- they're three potato homefries- with two kinds of white potato and sweet potato. I guess that's a southern Maine thing, huh? And the Good Egg Cafe (at Pepperclub) has some really good red potato homefries.
Of course, the ones at the Friendly Toast in Portsmouth are ridoncuklous. Soooooo good. And you can order them as a meal (Omar's Homefries) with corn, broccoli, parmesan cheese and a little soy sauce. And a side of Anadama bread. Pitch perfect. Off topic, I know- but just thinking about it makes me want to drive down there.

It's been a while, but I think I remember that they had good home fries at Hot Suppa.
