Curry fries from Everything With Fries

Like the restaurant’s name suggests, fries are the stars here. Although the menus at the main outlet in Holland Village and the fast-food version in Bugis Junction are different, quality of the food is mostly consistent. Among the assortment of fries available (such as sour cream and onion, wasabi, roasted garlic, sea salt and malt vinegar), the curry-flavoured ones strike the deepest chord in us.

Kimchi fries from Chicken Up

By now, any serious foodie would have tried the famed Korean fried chicken at Chicken Up. But did you know that the restaurant serves mouth-watering kimchi fries too? This dish is a unique combination of fries topped with kimchi, cheese and marinated shredded chicken. Even after turning soggy, the fries, which go well with beer, retain their appetising flavours. Each portion is generous and perfect for sharing on your chimaek (chicken and beer in Korean) date.

Sweet potato salted egg fries from Sin Lee Foods

When sweet meets salty, the result is Sin-fully good. As fans of both sweet potatoes and salted-egg-anything, we were excited to find out how the marriage of our two favourite things would turn out. While the sweet potato fries are good on their own, the salted duck egg sauce adds a rejuvenating dimension to the bold dish. Embellished with curry leaves, the sweet potato salted egg fries are not only Instagram-worthy, but also deserving of a trip to the nostalgic Jalan Bukit Ho Swee estate.

Mentaiko fries from Grub

For the adventurous, check out Grub’s mentaiko fries. The creative dish consists of shoestring fries drizzled with mentaiko sauce (made from marinated pollock and cod roe) and garnished with dried seaweed. Although rich in flavour, the sauce does not feel overly heavy. The fries make an awesome starter and the leftover mentaiko sauce can even be used as a dip for your other orders.

Fries with salted egg dip from The Quarters

Here is another take on the salted egg craze that has taken Singapore by storm. The Quarters prides itself on serving localised food with a modern twist. Thanks to social media, the fries with salted egg dip has become the bistro’s best-selling item. While the fries are not out of this world, the dip has a neat texture, is delectable and can get addictive. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Truffle taro fries from House

House provides intriguing alternatives to the usual fries with four unique flavours: pumpkin hazelnut fries, truffle taro fries, curry mustard fries, carrot fennel fries. Our personal favourite is the truffle taro fries (which come as a side with Asian Sliders; they can also be ordered separately), but we daresay all variations deserve a try. When paired with cider or beer, you may find it hard to resist a second helping.

Round up a few buddies and head down to House together – this way, you can order more items and savour a little of everything. After all, the best things in life are meant to be shared.

Garlic truffle fries from Supply & Demand

Supply & Demand’s garlic truffle fries are served in a metal container. Every time we visit the restaurant, it is common to be welcomed by a whiff of truffle while you find that metal container on every other table. The chunky fries are doused with truffle oil and capped with shaved Parmesan and roasted garlic, which serve as icing on the cake.

The mother of all truffle fries – and possibly the biggest plate of fries served in a local restaurant. One portion of PS. Cafe’s truffle fries can easily be shared among four people. Tossed with truffle oil and complemented by grated parmesan, these shoestring fries carry a distinct taste and aroma, making them an excellent addition to a meal or the best mid-afternoon snack after shopping.

Spam fries from Curious Palette

Apart from gorgeous ricotta hotcakes, Curious Palette has managed to delight our palate with their spam fries – arguably the best interpretation of the luncheon meat. It is a simple dish and yet the fried spam strips are so addictive that we can’t stop popping them into our mouths. Their truffle sweet potato fries, which come with the same aioli dip, are worth a try too!
