When we had stopped for about 30 minutes inside the Amsterdam Airport to grab some food or groceries, I spotted Vlaamse Frites and instantly recognized it as a well-known franchise for Dutch Fries. Even though I had never had fries from Vlaamse Frites before, something about it screamed must-try and authentic.
Thus, in the last five minutes before we were to board the bus to go to our hotel, I lined up to get a small size of Dutch Fries.
‘Eat as the locals do wherever you go during your travels’ so once I saw the man in front of me order the fries in a cone with mayonnaise as the topping, that’s what I got too.
The small size cost 2.50€ and .60€ for a choice of sauce (mayonnaise, ketchup, curry) and I immediately snapped some pictures before I tried the fries with a huge dollop of mayonnaise.
Mmmmm it was delicious! The concept was so simple; just French fries drenched in mayonnaise, but the fries were freshly fried and the mayonnaise was thick and creamy.
I loved this!
I was so grateful that I got to try these in the spur of the moment! Even the small size didn’t seem enough for me. 😄
