Fritz European Fry House Restaurant Review

: Locals have been known to cross the street so as not to succumb to Fritz's crispy pomme frites. An ideal snack, these tender fries make you feel transported to a pomme frites stand on a cobblestone street corner in Brussels. Boasting the best quality Canadian potatoes, the fries are carefully hand-cut, fried and served up hot in paper cones. They come with a choice of dips, including fritessaus (Dutch mayo), garlic lover’s mayo, curry ketchup, jalapeño mustard and Indonesian peanut sauce. Try the Montreal-style poutine --- double-fried potatoes piled with layers of fresh cheese curds and hot gravy. Some folks like to gussy up their poutine with Montreal smoked meat, beef chili, pulled pork or vegan cheese. Hot dogs, too, are available for late-night/early-morning cravings until 4 a.m. on weekends and 2:30 a.m. on weeknights. Settle into a seat at the wooden bench and sink your cone of fries into the holes in the armrest, or take them to go.
