Vlaamse Frites 43 Amsterdam Reviews
good late night food Jan 28, 2014
After spending the night in Amsterdam drinking, drinking, and drinking, we needed to take the edge off. Some Czech chef at one of the pubs we were hanging out told us we gotta get some of these fries!
Apparently "Flemish Fries" are all the rage in the Netherlands, so we had to go to this place. Alone, with the bars closing we needed a place to go and it was good to see the welcome sign of fries on the way!
So, whats the difference between your normal American style French ( or Freedom) fries? THe main thing is the Flemish fry is a little thicker. The other thing is that they like to sauce them up. Now in the USA we like our fries with ketchup, or if you live in Canada you might put some gravy on it eh!
At Vlaame Frites you order your Fry, and a sauce to go on top. The traditional way it a glop of mayonnaise. I went with Chitarroon, a spicy mayo with a nice kick to it. The fry-maid will fry the fries for you, put a glop of sauce on it, and give it to you in a giant cone.
More importantly all the fat in these fries will soak up your poisons, whether its alcohol, ganja, or whatever other vice you enjoyed that night!
