Oddest Fast Food New York 2001 - Hero's
Who could have predicted that the true sweet potato (not to be confused with the painfully orange yam) would be reinvented as the basis for a new sort of fast food? Yes, it's good for you, but it also tastes good. Contrary to its name, which suggests long sandwiches of bad luncheon meat, HERO'S specializes in sweet-potato permutations. The spud is served simply steamed, tossed in a salad, placed in a pita, and wrapped in a rice ball. What, no sweet-potato ice cream?
