Mr Potato Newtown

Mr Potato, the popular loaded potato fast food chain, has just opened at 159 King St in Newtown, Sydney. The South Australian chain has been making waves since its launch in Adelaide in December 2018. The brainchild of model Jess Davis and her partner Tyson Hoffmann, Mr Potato has quickly become a go-to spot for those looking for a quick and delicious bite.

We ordered two snack size pre-loaded meat dishes. We went for the Mash Made in Heaven (Your choice of 2 proteins – I chose the beef ragu and chicken, kale, peas, corn, red onion, low-fat feta, truffle mayo) and The Po-Taco (beef taco mince, lettuce, corn, diced tomato, avocado, corn chips and chipotle).

Both were pretty tasty! Next time, I’ll try the sweet-potato base.
