Sweet Potato Fries - Phoenix

abbefaith | Jun 25, 2007 06:48 PM

Certain foodies such as myself tend to obsess over certain food items and seek them out everywhere. I have a few of these items that I search all over for, and one of them is sweet potato fries. I've loved them for as long as I can remember, and until recently felt that they were kind of difficult to find. Now they seem to be popping up everywhere (at least in Phoenix) so I thought I'd compile a list. I'd love to know your favorites and if there are any I've left out.

And now in descending order starting with my favorite...

Delux - These are definitely the best I've had, and I think a lot of it has to do with the garlic aioli that they're served with. It's addictive! Plus the cute little shopping cart definitely makes them the winner for presentation alone.

FEZ - I only recently tried these and thought they were fabulous. They are dusted with cinnamon and served with a sauce similar to Delux's. After my first bite I almost put them ahead of Delux as my new favorite, but after a while they just got too sweet. I mean don't get me wrong, I can't wait to eat them again but I'd almost order them for dessert!

The Vig - I also just tried these recently and they were pretty good, but unfortunately they just came with ketchup. For me the sauce is definitely the icing on the cake, and ketchup just doesn't cut it.

Rumbi Island Grill - These were pretty good, and they did come with a special "Rumbi Fry Sauce", but I felt the sauce needed a little more flavor. The fries were crinkly though and for some reason that kinda ruined it for me. It made the fries seem more generic instead of gourmet.

Tanked Fish - These were soggy and boring. Blah.

I know Simply Burgers in Gilbert has them, but I can't attest to the taste. I feel like I'm forgetting somewhere...
