The title says it all.
Thank You Belgium, I can never eat fries and feel satisfied ever again.

Do they taste, look, or smell funny?
Are the fries gross?
Did they cover the fries in bile instead of curry sauce?

It’s nothing like that at all.
It’s really quite simple:
Belgian fries are the best fries I have ever tasted in my life and nothing will ever compare.

Belgian friesBelgium is known for their Chocolate, Beer, Lace, and Fries(or Frites as they call them).
Although I cannot say I know much about lace, they have certainly done a great job with the other three.

I’m no food expert, so I can’t say exactly what it is that makes Belgian fries so magnificent compared to any other fries.
Above all they’re just better.
In the U.S. if I want large crispy fries I usually have to get steak fries.
Unfortunately they’re not filled with steak.
And they’re still not exactly what I really want.

What I really want lies within the country of Belgium.
Belgian fries are large with a perfect crispy outside and soft center.
Cooked to perfection and can be covered in a variety of delicious sauces.

So many different sauce options.



Upon further research I discovered that Belgium uses Bintje potatoes.
These potatoes are
specifically used for fries.
And are only found in the Netherlands and Belgium.

This might be why Belgian fries are so damn delicious.

The fries are also cooked twice.
And most importantly the Size Does Matter.
The ladies say they need to be at least 10 mm thick.
If they’re too thin they absorb too much fat and don’t taste as good.

….wait, what are we talking about?
Oh Yeah, Frites.

Belgian fries
Size Matters.


I have had pizza in Italy and was still able to come back to the U.S. and enjoy pizza.
Belgian fries are different.
I’m only fulfilled with fries from Belgium.
