With just one week 'til Thanksgiving, it's time to dissect the Potato.
This starchy staple with origins dating back to 8000 BC, has come a long way from plain old boiled 'n boring.
Whether it's mashed, fried, chipped, or spliced into tasty Tater Tots, here's where to get it.
The Quite Woman, Corona del Mar
- even though it was the side dish, it stole the show, Halibut Special with Butter Lemon Sauce, Rustic creamy garlicky Mashed Potatoes & Brussels Sprouts
Crack Shack, San Diego
- rich 'n savory, Schmaltz (Rendered Chicken Fat) Fried Fries
Sapphire Laguna, Laguna Beach
- salty, herbacious, thin 'n greasy in a good way, Home Fried Potato Chips with Sage-Rosemary Sea Salt
The Grilled Cheese Truck, Food Truck in LA & OC
- honestly the best out there (on or off the street) Tater Tots
Do you say Potato or PoTOTo?
