Les frites


I hope you won't think that this photo is too much of a cliché. If you do, remember that some clichés have become cliché because they are true. Here is a tub of chips in its natural environment. Yet another reason for moving to Belgium. The sauce is mayonnaise. Exactly what John Travolta said in Pulp Fiction although in the Netherlands they also eat chips with peanut butter (they call it pindakaas, peanut cheese)...

I thought mayonnaise was weird, peanut butter? that's way too weird. How about just a little salt.

Peanut butter? Gosh! I don't fancy it.

Man, those look good. The craze here is to eat them with Ranch Salad Dressing. I prefer vinegar.

I'm from the Netherlands. No, we don't eat it with peanut butter blehggg !!... We eat it with Indonesian peanut butter sauce. That's a very nice tasting sauce, although de dutch are not very good in making it. Mostly the taste of peanuts is far to find :-(.
But whenever come to the Netherlands please order "frietje pinda" or "frietje oorlog" (thats peanutsauce and mayonaise) and try it out ^^. I love it!
