Potato Corner, located on Level 1 in Blacktown Westpoint, has been featured on The Daily Telegraph Website.
POTATO Corner isn’t your average fast food outlet, specialising in arguably the best part of the meal — fries.
The Blacktown Westpoint takeaway is a first for Australia after Potato Corner attracted a cult-like following in the Philippines.
Managing director Jan Flores set up shop on Level 1 on December 27 after he tasted the fries overseas.
“I was on holiday in the Philippines with my brother and he was raving about these fries,” Mr Flores said.
“After I had one, I wanted to share it with my community.”
Mr Flores was floored when they sold out of spuds on the opening day of business.
“We had close to 200kg worth of potatoes that day,” he said.
“Everyone loves fries — Australians on average eat 60kg of potatoes a year.”
Spud lovers can pick from four different cuts of potato — original, tater tots, criss-cut and loopy fries.
Coated in the seasoning of your choice, the potatoes come in three bucket sizes — jumbo, mega and giga.
We tucked into barbecue loopy fries, ranch’o cheddar criss-cut and sour cream and onion original cut fries — all in giga size.
Packed with flavour and not succumbing to a greasy aftertaste like some hot chips, it easy to see why customers join the large queue at Potato Corner.
