This past January I spent a frosty winter afternoon in New York with some of my bros, walking the city and exploring the sights, sounds, and most importantly, the tastes of the Big Apple.

Pommes Frites is a specialty shop serving authentic Belgian fries, or as the Belgians call them, “pommes frites.”, in the heart of East Village. Its a tiny shop with only a few seats so this place is a mostly “to-go” spot for those hankering for some Belgian fries, and is definitely a “street food” type place.

The atmosphere reminds me of a small wooden shack, taken over by larger fryers. Here,the potatoes are fried twice. The first time they are cooked through and the second time provides a golden color giving the fries a crispy texture. The special thing about these fries are the sauces that come with them, from curry sauce, or a peanut satay sauce, or even mango chutney.

The fries all in all are fine, not necessarily the best in the world, but I can imagine how delightful they would taste after a late night on the town.

Mango chutney sauce makes it much better
