Nothing is Greater than a Tater in the Gaslamp!

September is potato month, and the Gaslamp Quarter has some eateries that have fantastic poutines, fries and tater tots to enjoy! We decided to highlight a few of them!



Why not make a meal out of fries! barleymash, located in the heart of the Gaslamp has “Iron-fries” on the menu. Guests can choose from 5 different dishes filled with a mountain of hand crafted French fries and topped with delicious ingredients. We decided to highlight, the “San Diego”, fries topped with stout-braised short ribs, pepper jack beer-cheese sauce, sour cream, spicy guacamole, and salsa fresca!
