Fiets to Friets: March

Living In the Netherlands there are two important things…

  1. Fiets. Bicycle. How you move to where you need or want to go!

  2. Friets. Fries. How you fuel the propulsion of a bicycle!

This blog feature will highlight my experience with Dutch fries and their sauce, and at the bottom of each page you will find Friet Saus Rankings.


Haarlem, North Holland Province is SO close to Amsterdam(15 min Train), AMSTERDAM! Everything is there, EVERYTHING. But they don’t have my personal Favourite: Haerlemsche Vlaamse Friets.

We first read of it in the Lonely Planet Guide to the Netherlands but were unable to find it as we walked around where it should be, and actually walked right past it a few times. Once we found it though...Amazing...

Haerlemsche Vlaamse Friets!

haerlemsche Vlaamse Friets is actually a “hole in the wall” behind the DeHallen Modern Art Museum, just west of Haarlem's main Landmark: the “Grote Kerk”...an impressive Old Big Church. In my Opinion THESE friets Are also a Landmark:

Beligische Mayonaise (Belgian Mayo), my current #1
