Belgian Fries in the Philippines

My brother-in-law says there's no such thing as French fries. It's the Belgians who invented it. In fact, the French crack a lot of jokes about how the Belgians eat too many fries. According to some friends, Belgian fries are unique because they are fried twice. I was able to try these fries in a bazaar recently. The outside is crisp, while the inside is crumbly.

Belgische Frites serves "authentic Belgian Fries" according to their flyer. These fries are served in a paper cone, fried golden brown and topped with various sauces such as:

Roasted Garlic Mayo (yummy!)
Balsamic Basil Mayo
Honey Mustard
Smoked Eggplant
Red Beet Mayo
Cheesy Dip
Curry Mayo
Herb Mayo
Wasabi Ketchup
Honey Dijon
Signature Gravy
Sour Cream & Chives
Hot Roasted Bell Pepper

Belgian Fries are Russet potatoes that are cut thicker than the usual fries we see in McDonald's or Jollibee.

I asked Belgium-based F. what sauce they usually put on their fries, and she said plain mayonnaise.

Anyway, if you're curious about Belgian Fries in the Philippines, try Belgische Frites at Food Choices Glorietta.

Fry. Set aside for at least 30 minutes. Fry again, but at a higher temperature.
Hmmm... Sounds like Lola Kika's quartered fried potatoes which she puts in afritada.
