|oh, the mayo|
We purchased combo tickets for the chocolate museum and the fries (friet) museum, and we visited them back-to-back.
|or "frites" in French|
But before proceeding, we should clear up a couple of things: 1) Fries are not French Fries.
and 2) they are served in a cone:
|but are not typically multicolored|
|our guides this time were Fiona the Friet and Peter the Potato|
|wild, old-timey potatoes|
|Frituur - gotta love a country with food stands dedicated to fries|
|cooking some of Fiona's kin. :(|
|Frituur in the basement. You can see some of the sauce containers on the counter. Sauces are a big deal, with endless variety.|
|We opted for ketchup and "sauce Américaine" which tasted like nothing we'd ever had in America. Be warned that Belgian frites are most often cooked in animal fat, so your tummy might not be prepared for this adventure if you eat too many. Ahem.|
|we're getting to be old pros at this|
I think our family was split - Daphne and Pete preferred this museum, while James and I preferred the chocolate museum. But both were fun and worthwhile, and our kids were just the right age to enjoy the kid-friendly bits.
