Best French Fries under 100 Bucks

I will never go wrong if I say that most of us love French fries. :)

I’ve tasted different kinds of such with different sizes and flavors as well and I could say that most of them have satisfied my cravings. But when I browsed the internet this morning, I discovered that I had only eaten a few of the most delicious.

That’s why as one of my foodie goal this month is to eat these “said to be” most delicious fries below Php100 by

Here are the TOP 3 on the lists.


Location: 16 East Kapitolyo Drive, Barangay Kapitolyo, Pasig City
Tel. no. 501-0137
Open from 11:00 a.m. to 1 a.m. daily

Fry factor: At P75, Charlie's Fresh Fries is worth every centavo. For starters, the thick hand-cut slices are fried and salted just right. They're crunchy outside and tasty inside. These are the fries you go for when you're craving for some unadulterated potatoes. They're the real deal. They don't get soggy when they grow cold. In fact, the fries retain their tastiness hours after they're cooked.

Foodie fuss: Charlie's should consider providing take-out packaging for these treats. When we ordered them for to-go, they were just placed in a brown bag—something you can easily overlook because the fries taste great.

2.) NYFD (New York’s Fries and Dips)

Location: 4th Floor, Glorietta 4, Ayala Center, Makati City
Open from 10:00 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily

Fry factor: NYFD'S fries are the kind of fries that'll have you asking, "Where have you been all my life?" A large bucket costs P80 and comes with two dips. (We chose Pesto and Garlic Parmesan.) Tall and thick, the fries and the dip make for a fast meal.

Foodie fuss: Other dips are Red Hot Chili Pepper, Pepper Steak, Hawaiian Curry, Garlic Wasabi, Ranch, Honey Mustard, Cheese, Barbeque, Lemon Herb, and Bacon Onion Tomato.

3.) SANGO!

Location: Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Center, Makati City
Tel. no. 501-3106
Open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday to Thursday and 11 a.m. to midnight, Friday to Sunday

Fry factor: Sango's large fries, which cost P75, make up for being short and fat with its earthy taste. A little bit of salt is enough to bring out the taste of these mildly crunchy fries. Who needs ketchup when fries taste this good?

Foodie fuss: These large fries could be "larger"…but we're only bringing that up because we want more. P.S. Ever heard about the paper bag fat test? A look at the oil stains on the paper pouch above is enough to make one feel guilty about the fat content, but at No.3, we daresay it's worth breaking your diet for.


Location: Space 2-024 Glorietta 5, Ayala Center, Makati City
Tel. no. 501-3106
Open from 10:00 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily

Fry factor: If you're looking for extra crunchy fries with a chili kick, then Army Navy's P60 Freedom Fries is perfect for you. These thin-cut fries cater to grown-up taste buds--what with its persistent spiciness. You'll be hooked at first munch.

Foodie fuss: These fine fries are served on a nondescript white cardboard container so it doesn't look promising at first glance. Thankfully, one is proven wrong.

You can try them as well and we’ll buzz more about them after they filled our stomachs! ;)
