Cheese and chips are probably the easiest most comforting meal you can ever have. Whether they’re drowned in cheese or actually MADE of cheese, London has some unmissable versions you need to check out … and ladies and gents here they are…
1. Duck Fat Chips with Raclette Cheese and Truffle Mayo, The Frenchie.
These fries from The Frenchie Bistro are cooked in duck fat, covered in raclette cheese, and with smothered in truffle mayonnaise. The richest, poshest, most indulgent chips you will ever have. Get a duck burger to go with them too, you won’t need to eat for a week!
Elephant Rd, Unit 8, The Artworks Elephant SE17 1AY, www.theartworks.london/frenchie-bistro
2. Cheese, Chips and Gravy, Dip & Flip.
Dip and Flip are famous for their gravy soaked burgers. Combine that with their cheese, chips and gravy and a milkshake; you’ve got yourself one big, delicious, calorific meal. AMAZEBALLS.
64-68 Atlantic Rd, Brixton, London SW9, www.dipandflip.co.uk
3. Cheese Fries, Shakeshack
You know that squeezy fake cheese that we’re supposed to think is disgusting but is actually the best thing ever? Well, imagine crinkle cut fries covered in the stuff. Cheese and carb heaven.

4. Truffle Frites with Parmesan, Christophers.
Don’t be deceived by the lack of cheese on these fries. They’ve been drizzled in truffle oil first, and then dusted with parmesan. Rich truffle oil with the strong, sharp cheese – less is definitely more at Christophers. (Yes, those are pancakes in the background because what else goes better with chips, right?)

5. Oli Baba’s Halloumi Fries, Camden Market
WHERE’S THE CHEEEEEEE I hear you cry? Well, these photogenic fries are actually MADE of cheese. Yes, MADE of cheese! Deep fried, and covered in pomegranate syrup, yoghurt and mint. Cheesy chips have just gone all trendy on us.
32 Camden Lock Pl, London NW1 8AL, www.camdenmarket.com
6. Raclette Wedges, Mercato Metropolitana.
A half wheel of raclette cheese is heated until bubbling then scraped and piled onto seasoned wedges. Serious cheese overload at this Italian Market in South East London. In a good way obvs!
42 Newington Causeway, London SE1 6DR, www.mercatometropolitana.com
7. Super Pommes, Herman Ze German.
These seasoned fries from Herman Ze German are covered in melted cheese, topped with a meaty, chilli sausage and squirted with sweet chilli mayo. The Germans did good.
24, 33 Old Compton St, Soho, London W1D 5JU, www.hermenzegerman.com
8. Fondue Fries, Eat Le Bab
Who said fondue had to be with bread or potatoes!! Le Bab on Carnaby Street does posh kebabs and triple cooked fries with a cheesy fondue dipping sauce. It strong, mustardy and with a slight beer tang, it’s a far cry from a kebab and cheesy chips on a Saturday Night.
Top Floor, Kingly Court, Carnaby St, Carnaby, London W1B 5PW, www.eatlebab.com
9. Chilli Cheese Fries, Fat Burger
This original LA food joint does some epic chilli cheese fries, with a whole lot of cheese on top. Nothing fancy, absolutely delicious and proper comfort food. Sometimes just what you need.
10 Jamestown Rd, Camden NW1 7BY, www.fatburger.com
10. Classic Poutine (Chips, Cheese curds and gravy), The Poutinerie.
We call it cheese, chips and gravy. The Canadians call is Poutine. It’s different in the way that it’s doused in gravy and piled with cheese curds instead of the normal grated stuff. Whatever you want to call it, it’s bloody good.
