The Best Fries In Singapore

 

All great dynasties come to an end. Although the mighty cheese fries once reigned supreme, it has since been taken over by truffle fries with the advent of hipster cafes. Well guess what? The time has come when truffle fries’ supremacy is being threatened. Move over, truffle fries (except the ones at PS Cafe and Symmetry – you guys are safe)! 

Here are the contenders for the next KING OF FRIES.

 

1. Hot Beef Chilli Chunky Fries

The incredibly photogenic Potato Head Folk from Bali is insta-famous for good reason. Prices of burgers here are expensive, ranging from $19-$28++ but the gem to look out for here is their Naughty Fries. Made from thick hand-cut chunks of potato, these fries come mixed in spiced béarnaise and hot beef chilli, crisp shallots and Parmesan & sesame seeds.

It tastes like a delightful mix of chilli corn canne, taco and fat Carl’s Jr fries. Nothing tastes quite like this in Singapore and it became an instant favourite for two of our writers. Always order this dish while you’re here!

2. Mentaiko Fries

For those who don’t know, mentaiko refers to a sauce made out of marinated pollock and cod roe that has become a popular feature in Japanese cuisine these days. This Asian take on fries are a must-try for mentaiko lovers.

Price: $9
Address: GRUB @ 510 Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 (Bishan Park 1), Singapore 569983

 

3. Free-Flow Duck Fat Fries

Too much of this and I’ll give myself a heart attack. These fries are twice-cooked in duck fat and are served free-flow with each main purchased at the restaurant. You’re practically invited to gorge yourself senseless on this sinful indulgence.  

Price: Free-flow with every main
Address: Les Bouchons 7 Ann Siang Road, Singapore 069689

 

4. Garlic Truffle Fries

I always smell these whenever I step into Supply & Demand at Orchard Gateway. Garlic and truffle is a match made in heaven. Judging from the never-ending line of metal containers leaving the kitchen, these fries are a crowd pleaser. 

Price: $15
Address: Supply & Demand 277 Orchard Road #02-13/14 Orchard Gateway, Singapore 238858

 

5. Pumpkin Hazelnut Fries

This sounds like a weird combination, no? Some people have told me it tastes pretty good though. 

Price: $10
Address: House 8D Dempsey Road, Singapore 249672

 

6. Kimchi Cheese Fries

Price: $6.90
Address: SYNC Korean Bistro 3 Gateway Drive #03-01/01A Westgate, Singapore 608532

 

7. Sweet Potato Nibblets

Sweet potato is probably the healthier option where fries are concerned. The one served at Skinny Pizza comes topped with a sprinkle of plum powder, giving that extra oomph to what would otherwise have been a rather sweet dish. 

Price: $8
Address: Skinny Pizza 252 North Bridge Road #B1-63/64 Raffles City, Singapore 179103

 

8. The Classic Truffle Fries (MUST TRY!)

My personal favourite. The fries always come fried to perfection and topped with a generous serving of parmesan and truffle oil. Best eaten when feeling peckish after a productive afternoon of shopping. This is the truffle fries to trump all truffle fries! 

Price: $12
Address: PS.Cafe390 Orchard Road #02-098 Palais Renaissance, Singapore 238871 

 

9. Taro Fries

These shoestring taro fries are the absolute bomb! They come as a side with the Asian Sliders at House, but you can order them separately as well. Warning: these things are super addictive and are perfect when paired with a cider or a beer. 

Price: $7
Address: House8D Dempsey Road, Singapore 249672

 

10. Luncheon Meat Chips

Once I saw this on the menu, I knew I had to order it. These thin slices of chicken luncheon meat are served deep fried with a side of tangy homemade mayonnaise. Retro and delicious.

Address: Flee Away Cafe70 Dunlop Street, Singapore 209398

 

11. Truffle Bearnaise Fries

I’ve only ever tried salmon with Bearnaise but I imagine this would taste delicious. Bearnaise is a French sauce made out of butter, eggyolks, white wine vinegar and herbs and is one of the five main sauces used in French cuisine.  

Price: $10
Address: Spruce 320 Tanglin Road, Singapore 247980 

 

12. Stealth Fries

 

When we visited Little Hiro, we were super impressed by their unique fries made from Russet Potatoes. The fries here are seasoned with garlic, paprika, and salt. So simple yet so tasty! They were so good on their own that we opted not to use any other sauces with them.

Address: #01-01, King’s Arcade, 559 Bukit Timah Road, Singapore 269695

 

Which is your favourite?

 

If you’re as big of a french fry fan as I am you’d be dying to give all these options a try right now. I for one, am definitely going for the garlic truffle fries. Are there any other new types of fries we should know about? Let us know in the comments below!
