Manneken Pis

 Vlaamse friet or rather, fries, is a must in the Netherlands. Fries with mayo is one of the must-try food. Sounds plain and simple, yet not everywhere in the world serves good fries.

 Manneken Pis seems to be a popular shop so we gave it a shot and grabbed a portion. Apparently their fries are freshly made, not frozen ones. I believe that's their selling point. It was so cold on that day, popping the fries in seems like heaven.

They have a number of sauces to pick from... We picked the original, fries with mayonnaise. Their mayo tastes really good though... Definitely not the ones we grabbed from supermarket, it's way better. They cook it fresh as soon as we paid for it. Served hot - really hot.

Speaking of which, I think Melbourne's Lord of the Fries serves something similar too - fries with sauces. Except different kinds of toppings and sauces. I like the idea of having toppings for fries, even something as simple as mayo. This is a must-try-at-least-once food if you're in the Netherlands.
