One Potato, Two Potato…

A tiny shop that sells French fries that aren’t fried? We had to check it out right away, so last week, we sought out the weeks-old 3 Potato 4. It’s located inside Ben & Jerry’s on Washington St. in Salem, with a take-out window around the corner on Lynde St. Just look for the funky retro rocket logo.

It was one of those really-wish-I-had-thought-of-that moments as we were handed a paper cone of hot, crispy steak-style “fries” and offered our choice of sauces. The small is only $3, and it’s not tiny; sauces are $1 extra, but worth it. We loved the curried ketchup and the peanut satay. Other choices include pesto mayo, barbeque, and Thai chili. If you’re looking for grease you won’t find it here, but the fries are hearty and tasty.

3 Potato 4 is a new concept that owner Guenevere Blanchard hopes to franchise around the country. The idea is simple: organic potatoes are cooked crispy in about four minutes in a special convection oven—with no fat and a sprinkling of sea salt. It’s a healthy, satisfying snack that gets gussied up with a quick dip in one the highly-flavored sauces. Vegetarians will approve, and vegan sauce and topping choices are available.

    Hey, I just noticed yesterday that 3 Potato 4 has moved into a new location inside the Essex St. Mall, maybe that means they are doing really well!
