Today, in the category of the "most Belgium thing evar"
Translation: "the "fritkot" (a place specialized in selling fries) is now an immaterial and oral Heritage of the french speaking part of Belgium"
Yes, we just put fries in our heritage because they are this important to us.
@bram Good to know. I am going to be in Brussels this weekend so I will forget about my diet for some hours and try your heritage fries :3
@megfault haha, I hope you'll enjoy it :)
In Brussels you can try https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=50.84814&mlon=4.35176#map=19/50.84814/4.35176 or https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=50.80447&mlon=4.35822#map=19/50.80447/4.35822 or https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=50.79426&mlon=4.36530#map=19/50.79426/4.36530 they have good reputation :)
Avoid the "durum places" if you want the truly Belgian fries experiences (but they still sell good stuff, not as good fries :))
@bram Thanks for the suggestions, I will have to find some time to try at least one :)
@bram Apart from the Fritkot at Brussels South train station, I've never used nor heard “fritkot” in Brussels or Wallonia. What is more common known for me is friterie, or baraque à frites, or – worst – friture.
@meduz yup, me neither (mostly always heard "friterie"), I guess it's from some part of Wallonia but can't tell which
