1. Patatas Bravas at Ox and Angela
The fried potatoes are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, but it’s the smoked paprika ketchup and dollop of smooth and rich garlic aioli on top that make the potatoes from Ox and Angela so heavenly. -Gwendolyn Richards

This diner’s hash browns are soft little chunks of potato, heated up and given a slight, delicious crust on the flattop grill. Well-seasoned, they don’t need much, but we won’t judge anyone for adding a bit of ketchup or hot sauce. -G.R.

3. Diner Deluxe
Rather than go strictly straight-up potato, this popular diner adds some pops of orange colour and a hint of sweetness by adding sweet potatoes to the mix. The larger chunks of potatoes are well-seasoned, and we like the little something extra that comes from the colourful addition. -G.R.
