  1. I've been avoiding fried food for a while now, but Mitzis sister was always great as was Old York.

      I've found Mitzi's to be pretty good but in the same area Stampede's are better.

    2. Sweet potato fries are a good concept, but a very bad food. I've tried many but the texture leave me wanting. Allen's on the Danforth are typical and one to stay away from. Lot's of hype on the menu, but the result is a mushy, limp, foul tasting thing. Just stick with baking 'em, and enjoy 'em.

      Also tried Turnip Fries with the same result :-P

        Now see the ones I like are totally different from Allen's. They are thin and crispy from a very light batter that has no discernable flavour, it just adds texture. And I like them with a spicy dip to contrast with the sweet - no sweet taste to the dip please! Ten Feet Tall's fries with jalapeƱo mayo are my ideal, but i'm pretty sure they are using a mass supplier, not some secret recipe. I've heard Dr Curiosity (?) in the west end has the same fries. Rails and Ales does as well but only one choice of dip which is too sweet.

      2. Oddly enough I like Bamburgers (Yonge and Eglinton). I think Fresh's weren't too bad either but it's been awhile.
