Thought this needed it's own thread - the French Fry thread should be dedicated to regular tubers.

Anyway, my vote (over Father's Office - which are great, and 17street Cafe on Montana (yeah, they're good there too) - is for Josie's.

      BUT the ones at Torafuku, with truffle oil, is my fave.

      1. re: J.L.

        I've had it once, but I thought the truffle oil actually got in the way, instead of adding something rich and flavorful.

        1. re: ipsedixit

          That was my concern when I first ordered it, but the order I received had just a hint of truffle, which didn't "fight" the sweet potatoes.

          Maybe you got a batch where they drizzled it in truffle oil (usually not a bad thing!)...

        1. Another vote for FO. The ones I had the other night at A Frame were also pretty damn good.

          1. There are certain kinds of shochu (Japanese distilled spirits) made from sweet potatoes, and I wonder how well some of these sweet potato fries would go with a good "imo-shochu" made from sweet potatoes.
