Need help finding good Sweet Potato Fries

Where can i get good sweet potato fries in the city?.....from Hollywood to the westside. And any suggestions about how best to reheat at home would be great. Thanks!

    There was a posting about this a week or so ago. Check it out. When I have leftovers, I drop them in a 350 degree oven for about five minutes or less (depending on your oven)...any longer and they might dry out.

      I'm a big fan of the sweet potato fries at Beechwood in Marina Del Rey/Venice!!

        17th Street Cafe in Santa Monica. Always hot and fresh and an order is enough for two or three.

          I said it on the origanal post, and I'll say it again here...Cobras and Matadors by far the best. Also, just had them at 25 degrees. Good there, too. I think the garlic aioli has a lot to do with it, since that was my dip at both places. Really offsets the sweetness in a good, salty way!

            i agree completely with you about the sweet potato fries at cobras & matadors...however I will qualify it with a question...is there such a thing as a bad sweet potato fry?

              That's a good point. I don't have any recollection of ever having eaten bad sweet potato fries, from 12 years ago at Nick & Stef's, to a couple of months ago at Gus's BBQ.

            Babalu on Montana has great spiced yam fries.
