“Best patat friet in years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

I stumbled upon this place as I noticed the long waiting line. Born and raised in the Netherlands but living in the Us for the last 15 years, this was worth the 10 minutes wait. Best fries I have ever had.

“Damn good fries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

This place is damn good. The fries are cooked perfectly so that the outside has a great crisp to it while the inside tasted like a fluffy baked potato. I'm glad I was able to find this spot tucked away in an alley.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Crispy, hot and fresh fries. My favourite sauce is Oorlog (mayonnaise and peanut sauce with onions). A must try.

“Perfect Flemish fries!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Having lived one year in Belgium I know what proper Flemish friten should be like.
And this place has them!
Forget the negative reviews - some people will always prefer microwave food to proper stuff and you can never please everyone.
The chips, fries or whatever you want to call them are fresh, made right there and just superb.
Yes, there are a lot of sauces available - but you can always order a small portion with two different sauces and come back to try something else. It's definitely good value for money when you compare it to usual Amsterdam prices.
The statement from a previous reviewer "My local chippie (presumably in UK) does better" is obviously a joke so I would ignore it. Yes, I live in the UK.
Personal favourite: normal portion with hotshotsauce and mayo.
