Local Review: Humble Potato - Curry Fries

Humble Potato is a local eatery out in Westchester near LAX featuring burgers and stuff, but with a Japanese twist. Their Curry Fries are medium-cut (around BK-sized) and covered in Japanese curry.

It was $3.50 for an order.

The fries themselves were cooked perfectly with a thin, crispy layer that gave way to a moist potato-y center. The cut was ideal for the curry and held up well against the heat and moisture, staying relatively crisp without overwhelming the flavor like a thicker cut might have.

The curry was thick, rich, and brought with it a decent spicy kick. There's bits of veggies in it and a bit of that sweetness that Japanese curry has. I liked the curry a fair bit. There's also an option to add a fried egg on top for an extra $1, but I didn't try it. Potatoes go well with curry, so it's no surprise that fries work the combination just as well, if not better.

The only thing I did not like was that the fries were salted. There's really no need for it as the curry brings the requisite salty flavor. Between the salt on the fries and in the curry, my "too salty" line was crossed.

Still, Humble Potato's Curry Fries were good stuff. I would get these again, but I would definitely request that the fries not be salted.
