After trying frites in Brussels, Bruges, Paris, and Amsterdam I can honestly say these are some of the best frites we have had. We went back multiple times during our stay in Amsterdam. There is always a line, sometimes long, but thankfully the line moves quickly and these frites are totally worth the wait. They have a lot of toppings to choose from. The traditional sauce in the Netherlands is mayo, but if you are a fan of mayo with your fries in the states like Chick-fil-A, I would suggest get the Zaans Mayo. The other very popular topping is the Oorlog. It is a dolop of Satay and Mayo and topped with onions. Sounds weird, but the combination works very well and tastes amazing. The other traditional Dutch sauce is Joppie. It is a curry based mayo sauce. It is a little spicy, but very good. Please make it a point to visit this stand when you are in Amsterdam. You will not regret it.

One of the best fries I have ever tried, a lot tastier than those sold in big commercial fast food chains. A lot of people eat here so fries are always fresh made and warm. Would definitley reccomend.

The fries are great but the lines are long. Fortunately, the line moves quickly. I recommend the traditional fries with mayo as that's the classic Dutch condiment - and worth experiencing. Bring cash as credit cards aren't accepted.

My Dutch friend pointed it out to me while we were walking on the main shopping street and told me this was Amsterdam's most famous Belgian fries. Obviously I had to get some because I do love a decent tourist trap! The fries fortunately did not disappoint and were perfectly fried with a generous amount of sauce. I wouldn't say these were mind-blowing fries (I don't know if fries can be mind-blowing), but it was definitely a treat for a cold day.

Our foodie daughter swore the place, really a window selling street food, had the best fries she’s ever had. They were very good, completely greaseless. But the real attraction is the large array of sauces one can order to accompany the fries. I had a curry sauces which was quite good. Still, though I’d go back if in the neighborhood, I wouldn’t make a special trip.

I heard about Vlaams Friteshuis Vleminckx from a youtube vlogger and liked what I saw on the video. So I decided to check out the place myself. The fries/chips are amazing. I got mayo and satay sauce and topped it off with onions. Luckily enough I got there when there was only a small queue of 2/3 people, but after I got served there was a queue of around 15/20 people. Ps make sure you get a fork and napkins

There is typically a very long line for the frites here and with good reason. Not long after you place your order, you receive a cone holding a decent-sized mound of hot, crispy, mouthwatering frites. Gobbling them fresh delivers maximum pleasure. As the complete name indicates, Vleminckx is renowned for their sauces, but there is something to be said for the pleasure that unadorned, fresh, hot frites provide. With that in mind, be specific with your sauce requests. The server was extremely generous with the two sauces we requested; we received a lot more than I anticipated and the fries started to turn soggy not long after we started devouring them. I’d much rather indulge in hot crispy frites, than a soggy, oversauced version. We didn’t ask for the sauce separately and I’m not even certain they offer that option. But choose your sauce(s) well and I recommend requesting they place it to the side of the cone to keep the majority of the frites sauce-free to start.

Fries are outstanding and portions come in three sizes. 20 odd sauces to choose from. Nothing feels rushed, just two guys running an extremely well organized business - and in 10 seconds you've paid and are enjoying a culinary tradition of Amsterdam. Enjoyed the fries in the sunshine, walking through the streets to the next market.

It is already well on the tourist trail but deservedly so. Little hole in the wall serving chips (or fries if you like) and sauce. As you can imagine, the chips are great and can select from loads of sauces. Portion size is good - the large was perfect for me and my wife and the kids had a small one each with different sauces. Queue went quickly as they fly through the orders - make sure you are prepared with yours when you get to the front. Obviously a bit expensive for a portion of chips but well worth it for quick food on the go and a tick in the tourist trail box.

The best street food fries in the city. Hidden in a little street, it serves delicious, fresh, crunchy fries with a variety of sauces. There is almost always a line, but people know their job and you hardly wait to be served.

Oh wow. We walked in the rain, waited in the rain and ate in the rain and it was 100% worth it. These fries are amazing (we tried others in Amsterdam too). I had seen recommendations on here to go for the Oorlog sauce option (satay sauce, mayo and onions) and it was amazing, husband also enjoyed the special ketchup mix which came with mayo and onions too. The onions are raw but diced and you can opt not to have them but I would say they add to the flavour - I thought the combination would be strange but it all goes so well together! The fries are cooked to perfection, I would probably visit Amsterdam again just to come here for fries!! A must do whilst in Amsterdam!

Asked a local where to get the best fries and he sent us to Vleminckx. They were so good that we went back the second day. Fresh cut, twice cooked with amazing sauces. He suggests ed #13 which was a type of peanut sauce and onions and it was really good, my friend had curry and loved it and my favourite was a combo of spicy ketchup and Truffle mayo.

A famous fries shop which serves just fries.. small, medium and large siszes, and you can add one or two sauces from a selection that includes cheese, ketchup, mayo, apple etc. This makes a good snack stop, especially when cold. The queue moves quickly. Who would have thought that fries could be so popular?

My wife found out about Vlaams from various blogs so we went to try their fries. They offer lots of different sauces/toppings with their fries providing a great choice. They put fries in cones which is very typical but not very convenient to eat, one can see lots of fries and cones on the floor. So much about technicalities. The fries itself - I have no clue why so much hype. They are pretty standard for Europe, any city has a decent shop for fries that are at this level. So if you want decent fries it is an ok place, a bit overpriced for what you get, but ok. But it is far from unique or special, really overrated.

We can thank social media for this gem. We knew we had to try this place so went straight there when we got to the city. The chips and sauces were absolutely delicious. Lots of choice and great value for money! We didn’t realise they didn’t take MasterCard or Visa so when we went to pay we realised we couldn’t. They were SO accommodating and trustworthy and told us to go and enjoy our food, pop round the corner to the cash point then come back when we were ready. Great start to our city break!!!!

Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
