Fries are the fast food side dish of champions — they are the perfect accompaniment to pretty much any meal and you'll be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn't like them. However, fries have long been left on the side-lines, serving as a mere sidekick to another food item. Not this time; fries are now taking centre stage with the rise of loaded fries: fries so packed with meat, cheese, gravy and so much more you'd hardly believe they were so underestimated for so long. There are tonnes of fantastic restaurants serving mouth-wateringly good loaded fries in Dubai, so let's take a look at some of the best ones you can get your hands on today.
1. The Palm Poutine
For a long time, American cuisine has been the king of fast food sides, however it looks as though Canada is set to take the crown with the rise of poutine with The Palm Poutine served at House of Pizza is certainly a strong candidate. These guys have added a little spice to the traditional recipe by using spicy curly fries which are covered in homemade gravy, topped with bell peppers, cheese and jalapeno peppers for an extra splash of heat. They are perfect for anyone who loves some spice on their food, but they aren't overwhelmingly hot, so those with milder tastes can enjoy them too.
2. Craft Poutine
If you're a fan of the classics, look no further than the Craft Poutine over at Big Smoke Burger. Sure, these guys are known for their big gourmet burgers, however, their poutine is out of this world. The Craft Poutine uses the classic Canadian poutine recipe of fries, gravy and cheese curds. However, they make it a little more luxurious by adding in some luscious sauteed mushrooms and rosemary garlic mayonnaise to make it into the poutine dream team.
3. Pepe Fries
If peperoni on your pizza just isn't enough, then the Pepe Fries from U Turn Diner are right up your alley. This simple yet delicious dish uses crispy french fries, topped with gooey melted cheese and large slices of pepperoni, which are sure to satisfy your taste buds to no end. They are great as a lunchtime snack or a side dish to one of their tasty burgers. Either way, you won't be disappointed once you try them.
4. Friesy Gyro Beef
You don't need to travel all the way to Germany to get your hands on the classic Berlin Doner as the guys over at Doner and Gyros have created the Friesy Gyro, a gyros loaded with fries and doner meat for the perfect lunchtime treat. Choose between beef or chicken and you will get a gyros loaded with a generous portion of fries, meat, tomatoes and their custom blend of sauces, which will leave you satisfied and most certainly returning for more.
Loaded fries are storming their way into the fast food scene, so it's time to keep up and start trying them out. Whether you are a vegetarian or a devoted lover of meat, there is something for all tastes out there, so make sure you order some next time you feel hungry.
