Side Dishes

Would You Like Some Fries With That?

Let’s face it; French Fries are the universal sideline for a variety of dishes. From barbecue and fast food, to steaks and chicken roasts, these thin, crisp (or thick and potato-y) are the perfect food item to complement your meal. However, as delicious as they may be, you can’t have French Fries with every dish you prepare. Fries and beef stew don’t make a good combination now, do they? And having them alongside stir-fried noodles doesn’t sound tempting either. Sometimes, you need a more fulfilling portion balancing your main dish, and French Fries just don’t make the cut.

With Eats By The Beach, you can put your side dish dilemmas to rest! We provide a diverse range of easy-to-prepare side dish recipes to harmonize your main dish and add variety to your meal. From Crunchy Asian Coleslaws and Classic Wedge Salads, to Vegetable Lo Mein recipes, you’re bound to find something you love on our blog!
