My favorite little kiosk at the mall: Hot Potato Bar

Hot Potato Bar

For #SmallBusinessSaturday, I dropped by Towne East Square to visit Hot Potato Bar. The locally owned kiosk is a build-your-own potato bar, complete with all the fixings. When they first opened, many people (including myself) questioned whether they could survive being inside the mall and serving a very niche dish. But here we are four and a half years later, and the little restaurant that could is still thriving and dishing out made to order potatoes on the spot.

At Hot Potato Bar, you can choose either a plain, veggie, or meat & veggie potato.

The meat options include chicken, BBQ chicken, chili and more. As for the veggies, there’s a ton to choose from and the veggies are unlimited.

I started off with some salt, pepper, butter, and cheese and started whipping away to get a nice mashed potato texture in the actual potato.

BBQ chicken was then loaded onto the potato along with every vegetable they recommended. The potato was then heated, and once it was done, they tossed on some macaroni salad, BBQ sauce and sriracha.

The end result was a meal fit for a king. This picture does not do the meal justice. It was certainly bigger than it appeared and quite filling.

I love their story, the family that runs it, the food and everything about Hot Potato Bar. It’s a stop I try to make every time I’m at the mall.

If you’re at the mall, or just looking for a baked potato, please I encourage you to visit Hot Potato Bar.

Happy Dining,
