It turns out the Irish potato is a Philadelphia delicacy. When I first found this out I was shocked! You mean the world hasn't been exposed to this level of pure deliciousness. Then I was proud. Go Philly. We can do more than just cheesesteaks and scrapple... queue the ever so healthy Irish Potato (sarcasm was invented here too by the way).
