Mais oui! Fantastic fries to fit your fancy in Edmonton

French fries are a staple in most people’s diets from an early age. As we get older, we often add new varieties, such as sweet potato, into our culinary rotation. But, we also learn that some fries are simply better than others – these places offer fries that are so much more than greasy, cut-up potatoes.

Villa Bistro

80-10014 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 0Z1

You have your choice or fries or potato chips as a side dish or starter here. But, we recommend the hand-cut fries, served with a luscious lemon-dill aioli that will make your mouth water. Potato chips are common, but fries don’t have to be – and Free Press Bistro elevates them to the next level of deliciousness.

La Poutine Inc

8720 109 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6G 1E9

Worlds collide here as western-style poutine and Quebecois-style poutine finally find some common ground at La Poutine. Their gravy comes in two styles: traditional, Quebec-style gravy (that happens to be vegan) and the dark brown beef gravy that Westerners are more used to. The fries themselves are Russet, fried twice in canola oil, while the fresh cheese curds are locally sourced.

The sweet potato fries here are legendary. They are super thick, coated with some sort of magical fairy dust and deep fried to crispy perfection. A rich herb mayo comes on the side, for your dipping pleasure. There’s also the option of sweet potato fry poutine, with gravy and melted mozzarella instead of the traditional squeaky curds.

Beer Revolution

11736 104 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 2T7

The French fries here are amazeballs - they are a mix of potato and sweet potato. Plus, they come with the most incredible truffle aioli dip that has a lovely tang. Swirl each hot fry into that heavenly, creamy dip and enjoy.

The Marc Restaurant

9940 106th Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 2N2

The hand cut frites here are gorgeous and tasty – so golden and crispy, never oily or soggy. The best part, of course, is the truffle aioli that comes on the side. One dip and you’ll be in heaven. The aioli is creamy and rich, and pairs perfectly with the hot fries. You’ll be perfectly content – until you run out of aioli, that is.

The Next Act Pub & Grill

8224 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 4E6

While you have the option of having home-cut fries with your meal, why not kick things up a notch and go for their appetizer-size ooey-gooey poutine, dripping with deliciousness? Home-cut fries are topped with fresh cheese curds and a gluten-free, vegan gravy for a combination that is glutinous in the best way possible.

Wildflower Grill

10009 107 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1J1

There are multiple French fry options here, all perfect to accompany whatever fantastic dish you are sampling. The truffle Parmesan fries are decadent and rich, while the fingerling steak fries are hearty and satisfying. There is also the option of good old Yukon fries if you are in the mood for something simple but tasty.

Delux Burger Bar

9682 142 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 4B2

If you fantasize about French fry options, you’re in luck: Delux Burger Bar has a plethora of different fries. There’s the standard hand-cut French fries, decadent truffle Parmesan fries and sweet potato fries. You can even go for broke and order the Delux Duo, which is a combo of the traditional hand-cut fries and another type of fry, like truffle Parmesan or sweet potato.

Sugar Bowl Coffee & Juice Bar

10922 88 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6G 0Z1

Their crispy fries with chipotle mayo come on the side of several meals here, including the omelette, steak and mussels. You can also request that these lovely frites accompany the dish of your choosing, but be sure to get the chipotle mayo for dipping – it takes everything to the next level.
