Cheese and chips are probably the easiest, most comforting meal you can ever eat. Would you agree? 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 are from The Frenchie Bistro who you’ll find at most good London food markets but also in their cosy restaurant in the funky food hub that is the  ArtWorks in South London. They are cooked in duck fat, covered in raclette cheese, and smothered in truffle mayonnaise. The richest, poshest, most indulgent chips you will ever have. Get the duck burger to go with them (which you can see here!) too. You won’t need to eat for a week!

2. Cheese, Chips and Gravy, Dip & Flip.

Dip and Flip are famous for their gravy soaked menu. We’re talking burgers, patty melts and french dip sandwiches all dipped, soaked and covered in the stuff.  Combine that with their gravy soaked cheesy chips and a milkshake, you’ve got yourself one big, delicious, calorific meal. Their motto is life tastes better dipped in gravy and they’re not wrong!

3. Cheese Fries, Shakeshack.

Sometimes you don’t want locally sourced cheese from a mountaintop in France. Sometimes you just want that squeezy fake cheese that we’re supposed to think is disgusting but is actually the best thing ever? Shakeshack’s crinkle cut fries are covered in the stuff and with several of this popular fast food chain in London, there is no excuse not to go and fill your face.

4. Truffle Frites with Parmesan, Christophers.

Don’t be deceived by the lack of cheese on the fries at Christophers in Covent Garden. They’ve been drizzled in truffle oil first, and then dusted with parmesan. Rich truffle oil with the strong, sharp cheese means less is definitely more here. (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, you read that correctly – MADE. OF. CHEESE! Oli Baba’s fries don’t come near a potato and are made completely of halloumi. Deep fried and covered in pomegranate syrup, yoghurt and mint. Cheesy chips have just gone all trendy on us, and they are seriously good.

6. Raclette Fries, The Joint.

Famous for their epic pulled pork burgers (which you can see here), The Joint has partnered with the Raclette Bros and cover everything they do in cheese! It’s scrapped from a molten, bubbling wheel and piled on top of their burgers and of course fries! If The Joint weren’t epic enough already this has taken them to a whole new level!

7. Super Pommes, Herman Ze German.

These fries are from German fast food joint Herman Ze German – home of the bratwurst sausage. They are covered in melted cheese, topped with a meaty, chilli sausage and squirted with sweet chilli mayo. Great for a quick, hearty bite! The Germans did good.

8. Fondue Fries, Eat Le Bab.

Who said fondue had to be with bread or potatoes? Eat Le Bab in Kingly Court does posh kebabs and fries. Not just any fries though, fries that come with a fondue dipping sauce. It strong, mustardy and with a slight beer tang. A far cry from a kebab and cheesy chips on a Saturday Night.

9. Cheese Tater Tots, Burger and Beyond.


Okay, so they aren’t technically fries but they are round potatoes so it’s basically the same thing! Burger and Beyond are one of the top contenders for London’s best burgers. Their cheese fries aren’t just loaded with regular old cheese but piled with mac and cheese and crispy onions. You can find Burger and Beyond at street markets Dinerama, KERB and Giant Robot. If you want somewhere to sit down you can also find them at North London pub Camdens Daughter.

10. Classic Poutine, The Poutinerie.

We call it cheese, chips and gravy but the Canadians call is poutine. Slightly different to what we know it the UK, their version is piled with cheese curds instead of the usual grated stuff we all know! The Poutinerie specialises in this international delicacy and can be found on Brick Lane every Sunday!
