Vlaamse Friteshuis, Amsterdam

33 Voetboogstraat
Netherlands 1012 XK
Tel: 31 20 624 6075's insider take:

What the corner pizza shop is to New York, the meat pie cart to Sydney, and the falafel stand to Tel Aviv, so are Belgian-style French fry joints to Amsterdam. This takeout storefront, sandwiched between lovely Spui Square and the shopping districts of Leidseplein and Kalverstraat, has served love in a paper cone since the 1880s. Bonus: The accompanying sauces have gotten more adventurous over the years (curry, mayo with green peppercorns, etc.). Don't dally; it's only open until 6 p.m.
