In business since 1887 and at this location since 1958, Vleminckx Sausmeesters have mastered the art of the "French" fry. Actually these are Belgian frites, those large, mouthwatering, golden brown crispy fries that are served in a paper cone and smothered in rich sauces.
Until you've tried these, you haven't experienced the best. And with an amazing assortment of sauces to choose from (they call themselves sauce masters after all), including curry and sate, ketchup or mayonaisse (the Dutch preference) seem rather tame. But you can get those too.
For around two Euros you can experience this delicacy the way it was intended.
Warning: After eating these, you will forever disappointed by every other fry you come across. That's the price you pay for perfection!
The only drawback is there's no tables and chairs, you must eat standing up or find a seat on a nearby stoop.
More Info: Open Mon-Sat. 11am-6pm, Sun. 12pm-5:30pm
