Lila's of Miami -- best fries in the world

Josh Ozersky | Dec 30, 1999 02:49 PM

I have lived in New York for the past 22 years, but whenever I get back to Miami, as I did over Christmas, I head straight to Lila's in the Westchester shopping center. I started at the original location (now closed) in little havana, but it doesn't matter. These are far and away the best fries in the world. I have eaten at all of New York's speciality places like Pommes Frites, I have eaten the fries all over Paris, in LA, Chicago, all over new york and new jersey, and I can't figure out why Lila's is half again better than the next best. They won't tell me either. Am I the only one that has such a fetish for these fries? I would seriously consider ordering them for my last meal. If I was Elvis I would fly my jet to Miami just to get those fries. Has anyone else ever had them? They are so light, and crispy but supple, and have such fresh potato flavor I can hardly believe it.

what do you people think?
