8 French Fry Spots In Bangalore


The different ways in which starch is coaxed out of slivered potatoes using vats of high-temperature fat reflect the variety of our city itself, and tastes and preferences are entirely subjective. We could compile individual lists for style and girth of fries, or potato or frying substance, and so on. Potato, potahto. But this list deals with fries that generally aren’t tossed with anything more than salt, pepper and maybe an herb or two; not deconstructed, heavily modified or potatoes-with-other-stuff-on-them fries.

Mother Cluckers

Relaxed brick-walled diner and bar serving international fare, from all day breakfasts to burgers. Address: Door no 957, 12th Main, Opp. Gold's Gym, Indira Nagar, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560038 Phone: 081970 47587

Hard Rock Cafe

Rock ’n’ roll-themed chain with a high-energy vibe serving burgers & American classics. Address: No.40, St. Marks Road, Opp LIC Building, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560001 Phone: 080 4124 2222 Oh how we love ourselves a dose of rock music, chilled beer and a good ol’ platter of Red Hot Chilli Fries. Well known for American-style portions and flavours, you can expect it to be sinfully fried. Cajun spice sprinkled on it makes it different and jazzy, especially since this is one of the few places where you can actually taste the Cayenne peppers. Where: Hard Rock Café, 40 St Marks Road

Plan B

Branch of urban style bar/diner serving hearty international grills and light bar food. Much like their sister concern Mother Cluckers, order the Dirty Fries. For a hint of change though, Peri Peri Fries is the way to go. Address: 65/5 Murugesan Naicker Complex , Greams Road, Thousand Lights, Next to HIL, Chennai, Tamil Nadu 600006 Phone:073583 98659

The Only Place

One of the first restaurants with practically flawless fries, we’d recommend The Only Place without batting an eyelid. While the steaks and most mains come with a side of fries, order the Cheesy Fries for starters. Gooey melted cheese will drown the potatos, and if you sprinkle some oregano and chilli flakes on it, you’ll find the stairway to fries heaven.

Café Thulp

Regular, Chilli, Chilli Garlic or with Cheesy Bacon & Smoked Chilli Gravy, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to fries at this place. We love the Chilli Garlic one as it’s simple but also tangy – a great kick really. For indulgence however, blindly pick the bacon and gravy one. Where: Koramangala {998, 1st Main, 1st Block}, Indiranagar { 39, 12th Main Junction, HAL 3rd Stage, Off 80 Feet Road}, Kammanahalli {21, 2nd Cross, CPR Layout, Kammanahalli Road}, Ulsoor {5/1, Skywalk, Near Body Craft, Assaye Road} and Nagawara {G2, Mfar Manyatha Tech Park, Thanisandra}

Arbor Brewing Company

From the usual French Fries to the ones doused in some sinfully melted cheese, topped with bits of bacon {makes it all better, no?}, chilli beef, dollops of sour cream and Cajun spice, they outdo most other fries. Try the Twisted Poutine for a change. A quirky take on the Canadian original, this one uses Lyonnaise potatoes with beef gravy and cheese curd – simply divine. Or have the Sweet Potato Fries – our favourite in town. In fact, let us know if you get this anywhere else at all!

Smoke House Deli

Thank goodness for Siders at SHD. We could probably eat only those and make a meal of it. Be it the regular, French Fries – just crisp and salted, or the Sweet Paprika Fries with just that added hint of paprika sprinkled on it, they’re really awesome. No, really, trust us.


Granted that when you’re here, your focus is likely to be on the Scotch Eggs, Bacon Wrapped Sausages and Golden Fried Prawns, but the fries need some attention too. You might need to coax your service-in-charge for a portion of it as it’s usually a side, and not an appetiser. But off the menu, try the Chilli Potato – a less fried but delightful sweet-spicy version of French Fries.
