sweet potato fries torontoThe best sweet potato fries in Toronto might be a simple addition to any menu, but they serve as the perfect alternative to your average French fry, which occasionally get boring given their ubiquity. A deep fryer does wonders for this root vegetable - crisping the exterior and accentuating its natural starchy sweetness, so that once seasoned, they achieve an addictive balance of sweet and salty.

Here are the best sweet potato fries in Toronto.

If DeSoto's sells "Yam Frites" then they aren't real sweet potatoes but rather Yams. Yams look similar to sweet potato but are a completely different vegetable. Bottom line, not sweet potato fries. I guess they would be French Fried Yams.

Oh, come on, I don't mind the best of lists but now we're starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel. Cut up some sweet potatoes, put 'em in a deep fryer or even in the oven. Add whatever spices or creamy sauces you desire.

This is not rocket science people and certainly not worth seeking out on their own.
