The best fries in Amsterdam: Vleminckx Sausmeesters
THE STORY: Restaurant Hotspot in Amsterdam: Vleminckx Sausmeesters
I know guys, there are lots of things to see in Amsterdam, but i have to admit: the first thing i headed too after my arrival was Vleminckx Sausmeesters.
Not only because i was pretty hungry but also because it’s kind of an institution in Amsterdam: Vlaams Frites Huis is there since 1957. So i guess it’s kind of a Must-see in Amsterdam, don’t you think so :-)?
DON’T CALL THEM “FRENCH FRIES”!!!
Don’t ask for “large french fries”, please. You are here for home-made belgium fries! But that’s the only mistake you can make while visiting Vleminckx Sausmeesters near Kalverstraat. For the rest you can’t make mistakes: You can choose between different sizes: klein, middel and groot, 12 different sauces in the “Regulier saus assortiment” or 16 different sauces in the “Belgisch saus assortiment”. You should know that Vleminckx Sausmeesters is specialized in making more than 25 different sauces and especially known for that!
But before you can do all that you have to stand in a row of at least 10 people which are all here for THIS fries! Normally there are around 15 people getting the Vlams Frites… so, be prepared that you’re mouth is watering for at least 10 minutes!
AND IF YOU’RE STILL HUNGRY AFTER YOUR SMALL PAPER CORNET FRIES, GET IN THE ROW AGAIN AND GET SOME OTHER FRIES…WITH ANOTHER SAUCE!!!
Have to admit that im not really a “trier” and therefore i got for the normal “Pommes Schranke” which means “Ketchup-Mayo” on my small fries. And, im a big eater but i had more than enough. The fries are big and will fill your stomach for sure. And if not, head for another round in the row at Vleminckx Sausmeesters… and this time, of course, with another sauce!
HOW FABULOUS IS THIS PLACE?:
THERE’S NOTHING LEFT TO SAY: THESE ARE THE BEST FRIES WE’VE EVER HAD!
Easy-going. Next to Kalverstraat, a main shopping area. You can wear what you want. Nobody will notice.
