Literally the best fries in the world; make sure you try the 'War' combination of Mayo, Satay sauce and onion - sounds gross but it's a must, even if you're not a fan of onions - like me. We visited this place during a food tour and I'm so glad I was talked into ordering 'War', I promise you'll love... More

Randomly found this place on our walks through Amsterdam and there was a killer long line waiting for the chips. Figured there must be a reason for such a long wait time so we decided to order some chips. Lots of sauce options and the serving sizes are quite generous. Perfect place for a mid afternoon snack. Keep in mind:... More

We were told by our friends who live in Amsterdam that these were the best chips in the city and after trying them I would find it hard to believe there are better out there. We ordered the standard chips and Mayo. Amazing. This is my favourite snack in Amsterdam and now I wouldn't consider going anywhere else for them.... More

So, we took tripadvisor's advice on the best fries in Amsterdam and went to this place. Thrice. We did not mind the 10 mins wait on a cold sept day to get our hands on the fries. Absolutely worth it ... I wish they start more branches.. but then again I think its also to do with their native dutch... More

Our Sandeman's Tour Guide recommended this place, saying it served the best frites in Amsterdam...I have to agree!! The frites were fresh and very not...a perfect snack on a very cold day! There are several different mayo 'sauce' flavors to choose from, which gives a very good reason to go back! There was not much of a line when we... More

In most larger Dutch cities, there is a small shop that is not much more than a broom closet with a counter in the front, that somehow manages to attract a crowd of locals and tourists alike year round. In Amsterdam, Vleminckx is that little shop with a huge line. It's located near the Kalvertoren, and on most any day... More

Been here a couple of times when visiting Amsterdam. A very busy 'hole in the wall' that serves fries and sauce - as simple as that but delicious to nibble on whilst walking around the sights. A snack we'd definitely go for again.

One of the best fries I've eaten in my life. The sauces are great also, and the bar in front lets you sit with your fries inside if you buy the beverage from them. Overall a good place, but if the line is long then it's not worth the time, after all they are just fries.

Neighborhood Profile
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.
