I love potatoes, whether they're fried, baked, or mashed. Ever since I can remember, I've always had a taste for potatoes. So it is no surprise that when I found out about Pommes Frites -- a shop that specializes in authentic Belgian Fries -- I had to try it out!
What makes this place special is not only the fact that they serve freshly cut fries, they also offer over 25 different sauces to pair them with. Pommes Frites has flavors like smoked eggplant mayo, parmesan peppercorn, and pesto mayo, just to name a few. But don't worry, if these are a little too out of the ordinary for you, they also have ketchup and mustard.
If you make the trip there, it wouldn't hurt to be a little bit adventurous though! They give free samples before you make your purchase, just in case you're skeptical, overwhelmed, or can't make a decision (trust me, I had a hard time choosing myself).
When I went, I ended up going for the roasted garlic mayo and I'd definitely have it again. In fact, I think I prefer it over ketchup.
The fries are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. It's very obvious that they're made fresh! They're lightly salted too.
The servings are more than generous and they also come in these nifty paper cones.
So what sauce would you get? Would you go for the more exotic choices or the regular ones?
