Miami's Ten Most Unusual French Fries

Fries gone wild.

The term "French fries" may refer to elongated pieces of fried potatoes, but it can mean so much more. You can have them straight, curly, fat, thin, sweet, garlicky or crinkle cut. Although the options don't end there.

This is Miami, we like our papas accessorized, blinged out. We have them fried in duck fat, served extra spicy, replaced with veggies and even topped with hunks of meat.

Grab some ketchup as we attempt to make every day fry day with our list of fries gone wild.

10. Papas at Rio Cristal

Any ole restaurant can serve you a dish with a side of fries, but Rio Cristal tops them all. If you get any entree with fries, they will place them right on top. They will smother your meat or sandwich and act as insulation. Burger Beast gave us the heads up on these papas. While Blue Collar may have won his coveted Burgie for best fries; for nontraditional spuds, this is his pick. It may look like too many golden sticks, but once you start, you can't stop. Hide-and-seek is for children, hide-the-steak is for adults. Go crazy!

9. Zucchini fritti at Cecconi's Miami Beach

From portobello fries to fried pickles, many veggies have attempted to replace the almighty potato. Most have failed. Although, for some reason, the zucchini fries ($8) at Cecconi's just work. Maybe it's the beach setting that make you want to choose healthier options while still being slightly bad with that light crunch. Regardless, once you get your hands one of these sticks you will be dying to dip it in the creamy aioli that accompanies it.
