“Some things never change”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

Is 4.50 EURO expensive for a bag of chips? Yes perhaps, but these chips make all the difference. These are tasty, fresh (there is always a queue) and I think they've achieved some kind of cult status? I don't know what tjey fry them in but they are fried at least twice and are very crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, just like chips should be. THey serve nothing but chips here, and a few softdrinks. This is basically a tiny takeaway. Nowhere to sit in Voetbogenstraat, I tend to wander tot eh Spui and the little square with benches then soak up all that grease with a beer in one of the terrace pubs in Spuistraat. You have to try at least once. They're open daily but close quite early, so get there before they're all gone.

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

Having a long history of frites enjoyment, we asked our Dutch relatives which shop was the best in Amsterdam. Hands down, this was their recommendation and it did not disappoint. They have an enormous selection of sauces to choose from (Oorlog or Mayo being our favorites). But the best part is actually the fries, which are super crispy on the outside, and perfectly soft on the inside. If you go for a small portion, you'll be left wanting more, not because the portions are too small, but because the fries are just that good. It's on a small side street just off the Heiligeweg, very close to Kalverstraat. Don't miss it.

Great little find for a quick snack when wandering around Amsterdam. The peanut sauce and mayo in particular were fab. Fresh and tasty.... What more do you need.
