It's #NationalFrenchFryDay, and being the foodies we are at MDM, we wouldn't let a national holiday, as important as this one, slip through the cracks.

Where: 727 N. Broadway, Los Angeles (Chinatown)
What: Ooey Gooey Fries - beer battered fries with sour cream sambal, Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese, cotija cheese, cilantro, and pickled garlic.
MDM Pro Tip: Chego is located in the Far East Plaza in Chinatown and seating is all outdoors. This means you can mix and match from different food vendors. We recommend going with a large group and trying Chego, Pok Pok Phat Thai, and Howlin' Ray's all at once!

Where: 532 S. Western Ave, Los Angeles (Koreatown)
What: Duck Fat Fries - duck skin cracklins, smoked salt, and sweet onion sugar over your standard fries.
MDM Pro Tip: Beer Belly offers 5 different kinds of fries so you have many reasons to come back (or you can just get them all at once, we won't judge). It is also walking distance from the Wiltern, which makes for the perfect pre-concert dinner spot!

Where: 7166 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood
What: The "frites" are hand cut from the finest Kennebec potatoes and prepared through an 8 step, 24 hour process. These guys are not kidding around. Then they are cooked into either beef tallow to perfection.
MDM Pro Tip: "L'Assiette" means "the dish" in French, and L'Assiette only has one main dish - Steak Frites. So you better believe the fries are made to perfection. While it is the priciest option on our list, it is worth the splurge.

IN N OUT
Where: Luckily, living in Los Angeles it's a safe bet you're pretty close to an In N Out at all times.
What: Animal Style Fries - special sauce, grilled onions, and cheese.
MDM Pro Tip: Want your fries just a little bit crispier? Ask for them "light well done." Want your fries a lot crispier? Ask for them "well done."
