The Brooklyn Ribbon Fries in Minami Aoyama


I love all potatoes whether they be baked, mashed, or fried.

So when I passed by this food stall last year, I had to give it a try. The potatoes are cut all strung together like a ribbon, thus the name Brooklyn Ribbon Fries. These fries were a mixture of soft and crispy. So so delicious.

After the hanami picnic last weekend, my sisters and I stopped by 246 Common, the outdoor food court where the Brooklyn Ribbon Fries stall is located. We ordered sour cream and onion, which was a special flavor on their menu.

The best thing about these fries are that they make it after taking your order, so you are given a freshly fried batch. This means that you have to wait a little, but it's worth it. Plus, it gives you a chance to take pictures of the stall or of your shoes (like we did) ;D

We got ours to go but it was gone by the time we reached the station. Yum!

  1. Now I have something else I want to try. Ribbon fries!

    I wondered why they have like holes in their centers, but they aren’t holes as I found out on these YouTube videos: one fast and one slow. I’m gonna order mine with salt and nori flakes.

  2. If you like potatoes, try Robson Fries in Shimokita. I still have to go but I hear they make a good poutine. Or did you already go there? :)

    1. Yes, I've been there! And you have just reminded me that it's been much too long since I last went! Their gravy is good :D
