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.

Chips & Peanut sauce?

 

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