The "Brooklyn Ribbon Fries" Harajuku store, where you can enjoy spiral "ribbon fried" potatoes and homemade ginger ale, will open on July 1st. The author, who loves potatoes, also visited Lotteria's bucket potatoes.
The location is just after passing through Takeshita Street from Harajuku Station. A small shop like a kiosk suddenly appears along Meiji-dori.
The menu is only potatoes and drinks. Since this was my first time, I ordered the standard "Salt & Pepper" (600 yen) and "Ginger Ale" (450 yen). Chocolate-coated potatoes and shaved ice are also available as a limited menu at the store.
The menu is only take-out, and the potatoes are carefully seasoned after the order is placed. Comes in a bucket-shaped package that is easy to eat and walk around.
I couldn't wait until I got home, so I had a little bit of a pinch on the roadside (I hope there will be more places to take a break in Harajuku).
The spirally curled potatoes are responsive and you can enjoy two types of textures: a crispy texture and a soft texture (luxury!). Some of them are about 30 cm long, and you can feel tremendously happy when you munching. The amount of salt is also exquisite.
Ginger ale has a punchy taste that has never been drunk, with spices such as cinnamon scented after a tingling stimulus. It flushes the potato oil refreshingly. Beer is also on sale, but this one may suit you better!
The store aims to be a "convenient potato shop in the city" where people can easily drop in. There is also a store in Omotesando, so how about walking around the Harajuku area?
The store is located at 3-23-2 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo. Business hours are from 11:00 to 19:00. * All listed prices do not include tax
