Once upon a time there was a little isolated island marooned off the coast of a continent. A Continent where lots of people live and lots of thing happen and there be Dragons Friets n Mayo n beer. A continent where I used to live.

 

Pulp Fiction Quote

 

VINCENT:  But you know what they put on french fries in Holland instead of ketchup?
JULES: What?
VINCENT: Mayonnaise.
JULES: Goddamn!
VINCENT: I seen ’em do it. And I don’t mean a little bit on the side of the plate, they fuckin’ drown ’em in it.

 

 

Yes, mayo is a fries’ best friend in the lowlands. The two share a beautiful romance and can be found together all over town. Sometimes mayo’s cheaper dubious cousin, frietsauce,  makes an (unwanted) appearance with its unknown ingredients, but for the most part friets + mayo live happily every after.

Of course if you wanna blend in with the locals you can impress your friends with your mad skills of the wide-array of uniquely Dutch toppings and sauces. Below is our handy cheat-sheet:

  • Friet met satésaus: fries with peanut sauce
  • Friet speciaal: fries with mayonnaise, (curry) ketchup and onions
  • Patatje Joppie: fries with the “top-secret” Joppiesaus (actually just a mixture of mayonnaise, ketchup and spices)
  • Patatje oorlog: this one varies slightly by region but is most often served as fries with peanut sauce, mayonnaise and raw chopped onions. Oorlog the Dutch word for war, is a reference to the sloppy mess this dish entails
  • Kapsalon: fries with kebab or shawarma  and sometimes cheese

Of course all of the above are a long way from my dear old Poutine, but I have been known to enjoy the occasional friet speciaal after a long night out…;)

 

 

 

 

 

So yesterday bought some Friets oil (guaranteed for use at the Low Countries mandatory 2nd cooking temp of 190C) and poured it into this cooker.

and  (just pausing to get on a Boatie McBoatFriet)   set sail to the accursed  Foreignshire.

A cavern of a bar decorated like hard Rock Café used to be, the whole place bookable for 20+ people. Live music, outside seating with massive barbeque, 27 "hotel" rooms, indoor parking for motorbikes next to the rooms and a bike museum with personal tour by the owner (ex rock musio) who appeared  on this (sans helmet).  Then 160 cyclists arrived on vintage pushbikes lot in period costume.

Or satay sauce, if it makes it sound more palatable for you.
