1. War Fries (Patatje Oorlog) - Amsterdam, The Netherlands
We can't possibly think of what would drive the desire for snacking in Amsterdam but, for some reason, there are so many great places to pick up decent eats and treats. One of the things closely associated with the city is thick cut fries that are often smothered in mayonnaise or lightly dusted with paprika but the real mastery of the humble fry comes from the delectable patatje oorlog, or war fries to those of you who aren't so up on your Dutch. These twice fried potato fries come layered with mayo and satay sauce and then topped off with chopped, fried onions.
Served in a cone, they are great on the go but can become a little messy if you're not paying attention. Totally worth it, though!
