The Best Fries in Toronto

The best fries in Toronto are easily one of the most universally-loved finger foods. Hot, crispy, and salty, these phenomenal potato strips make the perfect vehicle for your choice of sauces. Given the fried perfection, these fries typically need little more than ketchup and mayo. 

Here are the best fries in Toronto.


Wvrst

Duck fat fries are a beer-drinkers' fuel at Toronto's German-style beer hall. Head to the upper-floor restaurant on King West or the location at Union Station for these Belgian-style fries, which you can get with a dip or “dirty”, topped with peppers and curry WVRST sauce.

Fish is nothing without the chips, and this St. Clair West spot does a perfect plate of both. Accompany the combo with gravy, curry sauce, or horseradish garlic dill dip. You can also upgrade these fries to poutine.

Late night poutine is made using this Financial District restaurant's signature Belgian frites, blanched in beef tallow and duck fat, then fried in canola oil. You can spruce them up with an assortment of luxe toppings or get them simply served with their house-made smoked ketchup and mayo.

Swan, one of the oldest diners in Toronto, is now a French restaurant, where the frites are obligatory. These fries undergo a two-day brine, two blanches, an overnight freeze, and a flash fry to achieve the perfect crispy texture.


Fearless Meat

Fearless Meat

Kingston Road's carnivorous paradise knows that salty fries are the perfect accompaniment to smoked meats. All fries here are double fried for extra crispiness. You can get the regular size or just admit that you’ll want more and order the large.

Triple-cooked fries mean crispiness is taken to the next level at this French bistro on Dovercourt. Get an order on the side or accompanying whole or half servings of White Rock chicken. Gravy boats are there for dunking.

Drop Shop

Drop Shop

Liberty Village's smash burger joint serves shoestring fries with the skin on. Drop Shop uses Burbank Russets potatoes, cutting them in-house then blanching, brining, and frying at two different temperatures. They're sprinkled with a mushroom and chive seasoning.

Roncesvalles’ destination for buttermilk-breaded chicken wings has some killer crispy smashed fries. These wedge-shaped carbs are spiced with cayenne salt. They're a lot less spicy than they seem.
