8 French Fry Types You Need To Munch

Thursday, July 13, 2017

1. CURLY FRIES

These tempting twirly fries are the epitome of 'treat day'. Whether eaten as an individual meal or devoured as a snack, curly fries are quite the appetiser; typically cooked from full grown potatoes, which are then shaped using a unique spiralizer.

2. SHOESTRING FRIES

Due to their super thin texture, these fries look like shoestrings, or as they're alternatively called, 'matchsticks'. Shoestring fries are cooked in many ways, and if homemade, you can easily add your own ingredients for some personalised flavour.

3. YUCCA FRIES

Yucca or 'Cassava' fries, are a delicious part of authentic Cuban cuisine, especially popular as a summer snack. These fries are both delectable and incredibly tasty, but most importantly - they're unique. They're not made from potatoes, they're made from the yucca plant.

4. BELGIAN FRIES

Belgian fries or 'frites' are a significant part of Belgium's food culture, and are made from the same potatoes that are exponentially grown; thus, they also make a popular menu item around the globe. They're the basic fry (think hot chips), but with a whole lot of character, and of course, they're yum!

5. WAFFLE FRIES

Just as the name suggests, these heart-warming fries do look a lot like waffles. Crispy, served hot and sure to hit the spot, waffle fries are the quintessential nibble on any occasion. If you already like waffle cut crisps, just wait until you try this spin!

6. POMMES SOUFFLÉES

Putting the true French in fries are Pommes Souflées; palatable potatoes puffed to perfection. Just as their name suggests, they must be cooked to excellence. Pommes Souflées are one of France's widely renowned types of fried potato.

7. CHEESE FRIES

USA weren't playing around when they introduced cheese fries - they're not for the faint of heart. But if you love cheese, prepare to submerge into a plate of these cheese-covered fries, which are favourited throughout American fast food, and feel satiated in no time!

8. FISH AND CHIPS

And finally, presenting the perfect partnership, comes a match made in heaven (well, the UK) - fish and chips. While there are many claims, it is by popular belief that circa 1860, Joseph Malin, a Jewish immigrant, opened the first fish and chips shop. Today, fish 'n chips are one of the world's most popular (fast) foods.

Just wait until you try the chips at Greenvale Flipping Out Fish & Chippery, open 6 days a week, and be sure to flip out over their delicious menu.
