Description: Vleminckx the Sausmeester (sauce master) is located in Amsterdam since 1957. Vleminckx sells Belgium fries and is specialized in 25 types of sauces. For over 55 years the Sauce master stands for quality, sells home-made fries and that nowadays is unique. Many locals and tourist visit this spot in the city centre of Amsterdam. We are known for the many different sauces which can be chosen at the paper cornet Belgium fries.

“Go there for the Belgian mayo!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

I found this place encouraged by a local bartender in the Red Light District many years ago. I go back every time I'm in town. There's a line usually filled with locals and that's a good sign. My husband and I shared a medium and it was a great little meal. It comes with one sauce but we added another one side by side for a little more. I say get the Belgian mayo and the joppie sauce which is THE local favorite. Visit the Dampkring famous from Oceans 12 right around the corner first because they won't allow the fries.

“Good fries!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Went to Vleminckx based on the good reviews… It is in the shopping district and there’s always time for a snack! Prices are good - medium size cone is 2.75€. It is a stand - no places to sit. Interestingly, the café across Vleminckx offers you to sit at their place if you buy a drink!
They were very good! If there’s no line up, go for it - otherwise, there are many places in Amsterdam for fries!

“Fries are very crisp and tasty and plenty of sauces to choose from”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Nice fries. There's always a queue, but moves quickly. Plenty of sauces to choose from. They are only open from 11am to 7pm.

The other good one is on Damrak called Manneken Pis. didn't try these, but should have to get a comparison.

“Perfectly crispy fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

They only have one dish here: Belgian Fries with 20+ sauces.
The fries were made to perfection. The sauces were so-so (Belgium mayo and curry sauce).
Too bad they have any space to sit down and indulge.

“One of the best fries in Amsterdam!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

As always , very crowdy and very tasty ,the only problem is that there is no place to eat them. You have to stand on the street or find some stairs to sit on. Go for the chips and take them somewhere else!
