POD: Vlaamse Frieten @ Chipsy King (Amsterdam)

Here’s what I learned this summer. French fries are French in name only and fries in France are the suck. Belgians may have invented fries, but their fries are nothing special. Fries in Netherlands appear to be a national obsession and fries in Amsterdam are completely awesome.  There is a fry shop on every block and fries are all they sell.

I tried a place local chowhounds agree is better than most, but the best fries I found were in a shop on the edge of the Red Light district called Chipsy King (maybe that shouldn’t be a huge surprise).

Case closed. Amsterdam for teh win.
