Manneken Pis / Vlames Frites: The Secret is in the Sauce

.... and nothing satisfies the late-night A'Dam munchies craving better than Belgian-style Vlames Frites. Why are they so good? Hope their logo isn't the reason.

Favorite Dish Fries of course.

and you have to have them buried in mayonaise.

Verse Vlaamse Frites: Try a Cone of Frites (French Fries / Chips)

If you are hungry right when you exit Amsterdam Centraal Station, just a short walk down the Damrak will take you to Verse Vlaamse Frites. This is a popular spot to get fries, though there are many different fries places around Amsterdam. This is a take-out only type restaurant; you just order at the window and then you can stand out front and eat, or eat while you walk. The fries are served in a cone, with a little fork to eat them with and a pool of sauce in the middle. You can choose from many different types of sauce - there are probably 20 different kinds to choose from. I believe it was about € 2 for a small cone.

Favorite Dish Obviously I had the fries (I think that's all they sell). My personal favorites were the green pepper sauce and the cheddar cheese sauce. I think the green pepper sauce was my favorite. It was like there was jalepeno peppers ground up and mixed with mayo or ranch or something. Whatever it was, it was a bit spicy and very tasty. My second favorite sauce was the cheddar cheese sauce. This was similar to the orange liquid cheese that they serve on nachos at baseball games; also a very good choice. I tried mustard with the first cone of frites I ordered, and it was decent. I tried mayo (frites sauce) when my friend ordered some, and then I discovered the cheddar cheese sauce. I had the cheddar cheese sauce again the next time because I liked it so much. The fourth time I ordered fries I was feeling adventurous, so I tried the green pepper sauce and decided that this was the best sauce yet.
