Cheese Fries Please!

hyacinthgirl | Oct 7, 2010 03:47 PM

Like many, I'm an LA transplant and while I'm doing ok finding most foods I miss, I have not yet done very well with one item:
cheese fries!

To be clear, I'm not talking about poutine and I'm not looking for chili cheese fries. What I want is just really good fries with some sort of cheese.
The two I miss most from my home in PA are: ones from a local cheesteak shop that did hand cut whole potato fries served with a side of cheese-whiz style dipping sauce, and one from a little Italian place that has slightly thicker, not quite steak fries, that they cover in mozzarella and then broil.

In LA, I have a hard time finding cheese fries anywhere and the few times I've come across them, the fries have been sub-par and the cheese is either too glooped on or just simply not yummy.

Can anyone help me with this quest?
