Where to find sweet potato fries?

I've been craving to have some sweet potato fries, or any time of good sweet potato preparation. Where in SF is a good place to find them?

  1. I just had quite crispy and delicious ones at Pacific Catch on 9th and Lincoln. The rest of the food was pretty good, but not exciting.

    1. Taylor's Refresher in the Ferry Building. It's not my favorite place, but the sweet potato fries are good.

        We really like their sweet potato fries -- we have them every time we are in the Ferry Building. We get the rest of dinner at the French place, get the fries, and then feast.

          I had their sweet potato fries yesterday for lunch. I was disappointed :( However, it might not be that the sweet potato fries were bad, rather the fried fish was. Let me explain.

          I saw they had fish and chips on the menu, so I asked to subsitude regular fries with the sweet potato kind, they let me for a dollar more. The fish was was a huge disappointment, so oily. And sitting on top of my sweet potato fries, it made the fries soggy. I looked at other people's sweet potato fries and they looked way better as an a la carte order.

          I've learned my lesson!

            In addition to trying them again, a la carte, it is worthwhile to ask for them to be cooked "extra crispy" to ensure they're not soggy. I think there is a button on the cash register for that request!

        2. New. At Trader Joe's. In the frozen section. Just bake and serve. I sampled them last weekend served with cranberry chutney... interesting combination and they were really pretty good.

          1. You could try Zebulon. I haven't been there recently, but I remember they were tasty.
