Snackchat: Where to get the best fries in Amsterdam

The unwritten law? Fries should always become before guys. Oh, and yes: we’re talking actual fries here. You know big lumpy salty ones straight out of the fryer and perfectly crisp. A classic crowd-pleaser and one of our favorite snacks in the world. Where to get ’em? We know our fries: these are definitely the best places in Amsterdam.

Frietsteeg
Probably known as one of the best places in Amsterdam. The Frietsteeg is located on a small street, very near het Spui. They sell delicious hand-cut crispy chips that come in large portions. The best: Frietsteeg has as many as 21 (!) different kind of sauces.

SchatjePatatje
SchatjePatatje is the Dutch equivalent of sweetie pie and yessss. This place sure is sweet. It’s not your usual chips shop: SchatjePatatje sells delicious sweet potato fries only, served with salads, Brussel sprouts 0r ‘bieterballen’ (the famous Dutch snack with a twist: fried beetroot balls with cheese).

Frietboutique
Make sure to try the fancy fries by Sammy & Pebbles! After finding the best possible bio potato, these girls have been busy ever since. Make sure to try the specials: they serve fresh fries with caviar (!) and great croquettes too.

Friteshuis Vleminckx
Well, a not so little unknown secret is Frites Vleminckx. For over 50 years, this iconic chips shop is located near the Kalverstraat, which makes it a perfect spot for hungry shoppers. The fries and mayonnaise are considered as one of the best in Amsterdam. There’s a big chance you have to queue for quite some in order to get your fries, but it definitely worth it.

Frites uit Zuyd/Par Hasard
Frites uit Zuyd: not your ordinary chips shop. Expect high-quality chips and snacks served with a g&t or a glass of champagne on the side. Way too fancy? They also do takeaway. If the weather is good, the nearby Sarphatipark is a perfect place for a fries picknick.
