What can you buy on the street that comes in a cone, is filled with fat, and is a guilty treat? No, it’s not ice cream… it’s fries!
The Dutch (and the Belgians) have come up with an ingenious way of serving chips (a.k.a. French fries) – they are wrapped up in a disposable paper cone, and sometimes accompanied with a miniature two- or three-pronged plastic or wooden fork for spearing those greasy goodies.
It’s so convenient – you can just walk around town with your chip-cone in your hand, munching as you go. Well-known chip shops like Mannekin Pis also offer a variety of sauces which can be slathered on top – mayonnaise, ketchup, chili sauce, garlic sauce, curry sauce, and a host of others. Of course, the sauce does tend to be unevenly distributed among the fries due to the conical receptacle… the Dutch will have to work on a solution for this.
