This Sunday the 19th is National Potato Day! Potatoes are a key ingredient in many of America's favorite snacks -- frankly, the best snacks -- and Los Angeles restaurants know how to handle them expertly. Whether you like yours in a taco shell, or fried up and served alongside your favorite meat-in-bun, we've got some celebration inspiration for you in our gallery of L.A. potatoes. Gear up for eating!
