Despite the fact that friets (fries) are actually Belgian and not Dutch, it wouldn’t be a trip to Amsterdam without eating some. One of the best places to do so is the hole-in-the-wall establishment known as the Vlaams Friethuis Vleminckx. Established in 1887 and available in Amsterdam since 1957, you will easily be able to spot the place from the fairly fast moving queue outside.
Regularly scoring well in Dutch food taste tests, the fries are crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle. But the real delight is in choosing one (or more!) of the 25 different sauces/sauce combinations available. Whether you decide to go for traditional Belgian mayonnaise or something a little more exotic like the Samuraisaus – you’ll probably be back for seconds. Tip: Bring cash.
