In honor of Burger Week's sexy cousin Fry Day Friday (see what we did there?), we went on the hunt for some of Portland's more unique deep-fried potato dishes, the ones that took the humble concept of starch-hitting-oil and elevated it (usually with the addition of cheese, meat, or other equally delicious-slash-unnecessary tater toppings).
To keep things classic, we kept the definition of a "French fry" to just that: The dishes had to contain potatoes (sorry, chickpea fries), and spend some quality time in the deep fryer. Did we miss your favorite? Holler in the comments.
