Best Modernization of Mashed Potatoes

Joey's

Remember the days of mashed-potato volcanoes with hot lava (read: gravy)? They're over. Sorry, mom. Instead, meet Joey's crispy mashed potatoes. The chefs at this popular restaurant have remade a childhood favorite into an even more comfortable food that can be eaten sans utensils. They start with the traditional blend of potatoes, heavy cream, milk, and herbs, but then roll the contents into spring-roll wrappers, toss the cylinders into a deep fryer for two minutes, and garnish with sour cream, cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and green onions. Dig in, or for old time's sake, ask for a spoon—and some lava, too. —Erika Hobart 901 Fairview Ave. N. (also in downtown Bellevue), 749-5639
