POTATOES have been part of the history of the Irish people as it became their staple food back in the 1800s when it was the only crop that they can grow to feed their families. However, potato famine came that resulted for over a million people to die due to hunger and diseases.

It took years for the Irish people to recover from the said tragic event that left a legacy of survival and resilience, making potato an integral part of their lives.

Now, “Irish Potatoes” have gone a long way as it recently reached Iloilo City. It is not the literal potato from Ireland, but it is a store that sells a variety of food options with ofcourse, potato as main ingredient.

Last Aug. 27, “Irish Potatoes” opened at the second floor of Robinsons Place Iloilo. Offering different flavors of fries, the said store became an instant hit among Ilonggo foodies.

Among the flavors to choose from include the Celtic Storm, Irish Thunder, Pot o’ Gold, Ace of Hearts, Flash of Summer, and Gaelic Range – all named creatively and come in a bucket full of toppings and flavored with dressings.

Ranging in regular (100 grams), medium (150 grams), large (200 grams) and jumbo (300 grams) sizes, one can customize their “Irish Potatoes”. They may “spatter it” with Cheese Sauce, Sour Cream ‘n Onion Sauce or Barbecue Sauce, or “shake it” with Cheese Powder, Sour Cream ‘n Onion Powder, or Barbecue Powder.

After choosing from spatter and shake, the customers can now choose their favorite toppings that ranges from beef, bacon, salsa, jalapeno, olives, mushrooms, and corn – a delightful finishing touch ready to be munched.

To complement its fries, “Irish Potatoes” also serve hot and cold drinks. They have wide choices of beverages from lemonade (Cucumber Lemon and Blue Lemonade), beer, frozen drinks (Strawberry Freeze, Blueberry Freeze and Green Apple Freeze), and coffee (Caffe Americano, Caffé Latte, Cappuccino, Vanilla Caffé Latte, Caffe Mocha, Caramel Macchiato, Shakerato, Tiramisu Latte, and Real Hazelnut Mocha) – all available at very affordable prices.

As it hits instantly, “Irish Potatoes” will be opening another branch to be located at SM City Iloilo this November.
