There's nothing more comforting than a big bowl of hot chips. Get these wedges, loaded fries, potato gems and fancy treats delivered to your door, or grab a takeaway if you're within 5km.

Gami potato heaven

It wouldn't be a feature on fried potato without this epic dish from Gami. Three layers of creamy mashed potato are topped with fat wedges, oozey mozzarella, sweet chilli sauce and sour cream. More deep-fried perfection on the menu includes mozzarella sticks, prawn mandu and of course, the signature fried chicken. Order online.

Entrecote's ultimate frites baguette

Every lockdown, Entrecote steps up to the plate. And on that plate is a fresh baguette, loaded with Cape Grim beef, crispy french fries and secret herb butter sauce. Dubbed the 'mitraillette', these cope-ahydrates are available for takeaway at their new Le Derriere kiosk or delivery via Uber Eats.

Calia umami fries

Look at Calia's tagged pics on Instagram and you'll be met with a sea of these french fries. Picture a mountain of skinny chips seasoned with nori salt and topped with shredded seaweed for that funky, umami flavour. It's nigh on impossible to order from the chic Japanese-fusion spot without nabbing a bowl or two. Order online.

The Botanical tuckshop potatoes

Wouldn't we all like to go back to our tuckshop days right now. Get a delicious hit of nostalgia from The Botanical – albeit a little bit fancier than you might remember. These golden Yukon potato chunks are rendered in beef fat for super crispy results. Just cook in a heavy base pan then enjoy the herby, garlicky goodness. Order on Providoor.

Kazbah's vegan snack pack

Kazbah is a new Egyptian street food spot specialising in fava falafel bowls, hummus loaded pitas and creations like a gluten-free falafel donut. But we simply can't go past the vegan snack pack. Think a hot crispy bowl of crinkle cut chips, drowned in tahini gravy and garnished with herby grilled eggplant. Pre-order for takeaway if you're within 5km and show this brand new business some love.

DIY feta chips

Turn your hot chips into a home cooking class with the city's best produce. Shop online with the Queen Victoria Market and score Meredith's goat's feta from The Epicurean, farm fresh potatoes from The Apple Corner and Australian oils from Market Organics.

Then just follow your fave hot chip recipe – like this oven-baked wonder from Gewurzhaus. While you're there, check out the gourmet salt range – including a Melbourne-made vegan chicken salt.

Cheesy bacon loaded fries from MOFO

Order a takeaway from this local burger joint in Carlton and uncover loaded potatoes as far as the eye can see. MOFO's signature hot chips come covered in cheese sauce, bacon bits, fresh spring onion and MOFO's secret sauce. Or try the loaded gems – with all the same trimmings stacked on top of a hot basket of golden potato nuggets.
