“The most famous fries in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Went strait to Veminckx for the famous fries and I was not disappointed. I so on a culinary show how people are standing in line for a portion of these fries and I had to try them. As I enjoy a bit of spice, I went directly for the Samurai sauce in a combo with mayo - it wasn't as hot as I expected, but it was good. My husband has the picalilli sauce which was a pleasant surprise. The fries were delicious, crunchy on the outside, soft in the inside, very warm served. The place looked nice and clean, a line was formed after us, and the owner was there serving himself. You can't leave Amsterdam without trying this treat.

Best fries in Amsterdam. This is not a restaurant, just a place where you pick your fries and eat them. They taste wonderful.
