What's a perfect french fry? It's probably got a golden crust with a pillowy, starchy center. It's hot as hell (read: as fresh as can be), and tasty enough to make every bite worth the risk of burnt gums. It's zesty, but not overpoweringly salty. One misstep — a pinch too much spice, a bad condiment, soggy texture — and a french fry goes from a thing of glory to a gruesome garnish.
Luckily, Seattle's got some fry-slinging saviors who stay on top of the stellar fried-potato game. From classic to Creole- to Korean-inspired, plus dips like bourbon dragon sauce or even a straight-up milkshake, here's a collection of the freshest french fries around town for your noshing pleasure. You don't even need to complement them with a burger — though you'll probably be even happier if you do.
