There is always time for fries
Right in the heart of the city around the corner of Bourse you will find this well established place in business for the last 40 years. As i didn’t have time to review the famous Maison Antoine or the hip Frit Flagey i am telling you that this place is probably just as good and sometimes when you are on the run or on the move and need some sustenance quickly or you are jonzing for potatoes Fritland got the goods for you. Yes it is a bit touristy and yes it is a bit more expensive but you pay for the location. The service was ridiculously quick and the fries crispy and delicious (mouth-watering already) and what i love about these is that the fries are freshly made each day which is a rarity because most places use frozen ones.
Also when you are partying and need fatty sandwiches or a weird baguette filled with meat and sauce this will give you that yummy tummy feeling. Wouldn’t recommend these sober.
Didn’t try the Mitrailette but the guy next to seemed to enjoy his. Check it out.
The expression “French Fried Potatoes” first occurred in print in English in the 1856 work Cookery for Maids of All Workby E Warren:
French Fried Potatoes. – Cut new potatoes in thin slices, put them in boiling fat, and a little salt; fry both sides of a light golden brown colour; drain. (Wikipedia)
