Simply the best

This is the best place in Alkmaar to get 'patat' (fries). I live in Alkmaar, so believe me "I know" :-). You can often see the Fresh potatoes in the hallway, and see it being cut into nice fries. Friendly people, and it is always crowded (for a reason obviously!)

After renting a small motorboat at "De Kraak" and driving around the many waterways of the city, we got hungry and decided to stop by at De Vlaminck. They offer 3 normal sizes from small to large and two extraordinary sizes, half kilo and kilo! Of these really excellent fries! A must have! The young lady at the counter is... More

Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful! I love the staff just as much as there fantastic food. The sauces are great, hard to pick one. Tip: combine them with a grilled chicken from Ackermann just across the street and have a feast in the park or on a boat.

Definitely my favorite fries in all the Netherlands. There are crispy and perfectly delicious potatoes in here even if you don't add any sauces. I love it.

I don't eat 'patat' often but when I do, I want the best. And the best you can find in Alkmaar at de Voordam called De Vlaminck!

Every thursday, after work, I go to the Voordam to treat myself with a portion frieten, because they are the best in town. No other snackbar or restaurant can compare on their taste, crispynes and sauces.

Considering that we are not from this area, we don't visit Alkmaar that often, maybe 1-2 a year. But if we do visit Alkmaar we make it a point to visit de Vlaminck. Even though there are no seating possibilities within the "frituur" one can sit opposite de Vlaminck and have a nice look at the Grachten of Alkmaar. Our... More

This is a really nice place to get some real fresh fries. They make their own fries from real potatoes (see my picture). The quality and the freshness is the reason why they taste so good. They have a lot of sauces to choose from, i would recommend the 'satésaus' (peanut sauce), really good and strong taste. Prices and portions... More

Fresh homemade Belgium fries. Best I ever had and very addictive. I can't visit Alkmaar without passing by. Fries are made by friendly staff.
