Manneken Pis’s fries @ Amsterdam

Manneken Pis’s fries or chips are probably the most famous food items in Amsterdam, famously served and eaten by the locals topped with rich mayonnaise, the Vlaamse Frites (Flemish fries) as they are known here. Manneken Pis’s ranks so high because it uses freshly sliced potatoes instead of frozen ones, fries them in fresh fat, and liberally salts the fries before copiously slathering them with one of the twenty-odd sauces and condiments on offer.  On a Friday or Saturday night or early morning, don’t be surprised to see throngs of people waiting in line so they can sate their drunken or stoned munchies with a portion of fresh fries. If you have to succumb to your fast food urges, you could stand to do a whole lot worse.

The locals love them, so this isn’t only for the tourists thingy. In fact the locals are so fond of them and there two places in the city center that will always have a long queue in front of the shop. Both places have no seating at all, and are just counters facing the street, with the fries being the only main course on offer. The thing that makes them different is that one is almost impossible to miss for most tourists, and the other is almost impossible to find. Most locals prefer the hidden one, but Manneken Pis is the top choice of many locals as well and is voted the BEST traditional fries in Amsterdam.
