Top 10 Best French Fries Under P100 in Manila ranks Manila’s best in potato goodness!
Published on: Aug 12, 2010 - 3:00pm

Filipinos love French fries as if it were their own. The potato snack--which first appeared as a kind of street food in Paris in 1840--was likewise embraced by the Americans who turned it into the perfect sidekick for burgers. The Americans, of course, came to the Philippines and brought their food with them. These days, though, not all French fries are made purely from potatoes. But, hey, we still love munching on them anyway. Because not all fries are made equal, ranked 10 of the most popular French fries under P100 in Metro Manila according to their taste and overall potato-ness (if there is such a word).

Food carts located in Metro Manila malls.

Fry factor: You pay P95 for Potato Corner's Mega Fries, which can be shared by two--or even three--people. Certainly not gourmet fare, but it's the top-of-mind pick of flavored fries freaks. It comes in cheese, barbecue, or sour cream flavors, but you can also get them plain. Perfect for barkada encounters, when food is beside the point.

Foodie fuss: The barely-there potato taste of these fries is more pronounced when they're not flavored. So, yes, they taste better when they're flavored. It does come in cute packaging featuring their cheerful potato mascot.



With branches all over Metro Manila.

Fry factor: Fans of extra crunchy fries will gladly pay P60 for a large order of Burger King's fries. They're the kind you'd enjoy eating in bunches of three. Dipping them in ketchup further enhances their taste. These are lead-you-into-burger-temptation fries. Because, yes, you end up buying a burger to go with them.

Foodie fuss: The fastfood chain advertises these deep-fried fries as "0 trans fat" treats. Perhaps they just want to make patrons feel good about chomping on them.

    there's a little eatery at Cubao Expo named Subs-to-go, which offers the most unique tasting fries i've ever had. I can't describe it... It's very good.

    Potato Corner doesn't deserve to make the list - it's overpriced and not that good. Don't mean to be negative but it's just disappointing and unreasonably priced.

    The French Fries served in hotels are definitely more than P100.

    theres a small stall at MOA it's called Belfian Fries. I tasted some of their fries on a whim and it was FANTASTIC! It was also less than a 100 pesos but do Belgian fries also qualify as French fries? rnI'd also like to try the Army Navy and Charlie's fries, they look delectable!

    Big Dip Diner in Kapitolyo offers thick-cut fries too. They're a bit oily, but they serve it with dips so it balances the flavor out.

    Freedom Fries of armynavy rules among all the fries in the philippines. "FF" dont need any kind of dip to make it yummy. fries alone is enough to know how delicious it is. kahit di na mainit ok p rin di gaya ng iba na kapag nagtagal, nwawala na ang sarap. "FF" number 1!!

    I don't like Potato Corner, the fries are extremely oily, and soggy. Correct me if I'm wrong. S&R fries would have been better in it's place.

    I never fail to eat NY Fries whenever I go to the cinemas. I highly recommend the Gigantic Duo, just skip dinner altogether so you don't get fat :-)

    The Fries are fried perfectly all the time, and the Parmesan Cheese and Cheese are to die for! Kudos!

    I am a fan of New York Fries but if it's late and I'm craving for fries, I go to the drive through of Burgerking. I like the taste, but the Large fries worth P65 or so is equivalent to the Regular Fries of NYFD worth P60

    I always got for Mcdo and Jollibee comes 2nd by default.
    Crunchiness is a top factor for me.

  • pierre
    good thing jollibee wasn't in this list. I must agree, charlie's has the best fries, though I think Mcdo, and Wendy's should've ranked higher and potato corner shouldn't have been included.
