Each month, we of the PHOENIX magazine creative team ask ourselves a different question about our favorite dining and drinking experiences in the Valley. Our picks are usually hidden in the back of the magazine among our Dining Guide restaurant listings. Not any more. Our picks are going digital! Feel free to follow us on social media (at least, those of us who tweet) and be sure to tag us (@PhoenixMagazine on Twitter and @PHXMagazine on Instagram) on pics of your favorite picks.
August 19 is National Potato Day. In honor of this holiday we're asking ourselves, What's your favorite spuds-cenric dish in the Valley?
Craig Outhier, editor "The sweet potato fries at Delux. I get half sweet, half russet, and they do a fun little dance with my applewood-bacon-topped Delux Burger."
Leah LeMoine, managing editor "The massive, subtly sweet potato pancakes at Perk Eatery are a constant craving (with sour cream and applesauce, please!). You also can't beat the incredible potato knish at Chompie's. It's a mound of mashed potatoes baked in a flaky puff pastry pocket."
Lauren Loftus, associate editor "The Hangover Fries at Salut Kitchen Bar are bonkers, and do as they promise. Crispy, salty shoestring fries topped with cheddar, homemade beer and chorizo gravy, and a sunny-side up egg soak up last night's revelries and bad choices." Follow on Twitter: @thelaurenloftus
Angelina Aragon, associate art director "The frittes at Joe's Midnight Run. They are served with garlic aioli, chimichurri aioli and delicious curry ketchup." Follow on Twitter: @absolutely_ange
