Village Voice's Description
This narrow eatery, with its dim Tudor interior, serves only one thing: french fries made with Yukon Gold potatoes irregularly cut and twice fried in the Belgian manner to yield perfect pommes frites. To enhance the illusion, the spuds are dispensed in a paper cone. The smallest size weighs in at three-quarters of a pound--a complete meal. There are 15 dipping sauces, including imported Dutch fritessaus, mustard-based mucky duck, kalamata olive, Maui onion, English malt vinegar, and, of course, ketchup. The best part: the crunchy bits in the bottom of the cone.
Tips from foursquare
Go here and get some real Belgian fries in one of those huge paper cone things. They've got dozens of awesome sauces to choose from. Open late for post-drinking food.
Our favorite sauces is the "especial" sauce-mayo, ketchup, & onions- the American answer to Quebecois poutine, only better. The onions will make your breath smell awful, so no kissing afterward
After a night of drinking, burning the roof of your mouth on these amazing Belgian fries is the least of your worries. Overwhelmed by the choices for sauce? Don't be - ask to try them all.
Try the Pommes Frites and spot it on Foodspotting!
Sweet Mango Chutney Sauce is the BEST! A regular is plenty for one person to finish :)
