Despite the moniker, fries are 100% Belgian. At least that's what locals and expats alike believe.
Having lived in Brussels for six years, I ate my fair share of frites. Mayonnaise is the sauce of choice for most, but me? Oh la la.
I prefer the Sauce Andalouse ---Mayonnaise mixed with tomato purée and pimento.
In a word---yum!
The best way to eat them is from the numerous frite stands that dot the city scape of Brussels. Hot out of the oil, wrapped in a paper cone, there is nothing better.
