Appetizers

Sacramento Bee readers name their own ‘Tater Tops’

The fries at Boxing Donkey Irish Pub in Roseville are hand-cut from Kennebec potatoes, well-seasoned with a proprietary mix of spices and served with spicy dipping sauce. They’re among our restaurant reviewers’ picks.

Sacramento can’t get enough french fries, it seems, a snack that has become a cultural icon in a myriad of styles. Everyone, of course, has a favorite.

My fellow restaurant reviewer Blair Anthony Robertson and I consulted to come up with 10 versions we find intriguing, sold at area restaurants. Our story appeared in Sunday’s Feast section, and generated a basketful of comments from french-fry aficionados. Take a look at them on The Bee’s Facebook page.

Meanwhile, here’s a sampling of readers’ french-fry recommendations:

Jacks Urban Eats’ fries.”

LowBrau’s duck fat fries, splendid.”

Willie’s chili fries. Mmm...”

“Garage Fries at Capitol Garage.”

“I had some fries at the Buggy Whip and they were some of the best.”

“Where’s Adamo’s (on the list)?”
