Best Fries - 2013
Mile End Delicatessen
At Mile End Delicatessen, Jewish deli meets Montreal, and the results are spectacular, particularly when it comes to poutine, which starts with a bed of fries. But these fries aren't just fries. They are fries that are laden with melty cheese curds and thick, savory chicken gravy you'll soon be licking off your fingers, and if you're really taking things seriously, there'll be meat, smoky and sweet, piled high above that. But once you've gotten over your delight at the toppings, you can appreciate that the fries hold their own quite well: They're slightly crisp on the outside with a chewy interior. They happen to hold cheese and gravy well, too.
