The best fries in Toronto are the ultimate craveable snack food: hot, crispy, salty, portable, and topped with pretty much anything. Lots of these places know how to make theirs into the basis for incredible poutine, but the fries at all of these spots are so good they need little more than ketchup and mayo.
Here are the best fries in Toronto.6 - Bellwoods Brewery
Nothing bolsters a good craft beer drinking session like a plate of fries, and this Ossington brewery knows that, setting theirs off simply with herbs and an addictive garlic mayo that keep you reaching for more.
4 - Moo Frites
This Kensington joint is Toronto’s destination for Belgian fries served in traditional paper cones. There are over two dozen zany options for dips and toppings, including peanut sauce, wasabi and kimchi.
3 - Wvrst
Belgian-style duck fat fries are chunky, fatty and salty at this King West beer hall, and a wide variety of house dips like spicy tomato chili jam and maple rosemary mayo just pushes them over the edge. The ultimate topping here, however, is ooey-gooey melted raclette and gouda.
11 - Le Swan
The fries at this reinvented Queen and Crawford diner actually go through a labour-intensive two-day process. Worth it for the golden brown and airy result, they’re only ever served with Hellman’s mayo and Heinz ketchup.
5 - Beerbistro
Late night poutine is made using the signature Belgian frites here, blanched in beef tallow and duck fat. Their equally formidable mussels just aren’t the same without them, and topped with chicken gravy and cheese these fries are just beyond.
8 - The Good Son
Hand-cut fries at this West Queen West hangout come with a malt mayo that combines the best of two classic accompaniments.
7 - Poutini's (King West)
Russets hand-smashed before your eyes at locations near King and Portland as well as Queen and Dovercourt have been hailed by food experts far and wide as the foundation for one of Toronto’s most perfect poutines, which even comes in a vegan version.
9 - Sea Witch Fish and Chips
Seeing as fish are nothing without the chips, it stands to reason that this popular St. Clair West spot does both stunningly. Accompany them with gravy, curry sauce, or horseradish dill dip, or upgrade to a poutine.
10 - Cafe Cancan
This pastel Harbord Village restaurant is your source for everything French, so naturally they do frites tres magnifique, served with a mayo remoulade.
