5x Next level fries
Once in a while you just crave a greasy bite. Let's forget about calories and simply enjoy. We won't judge. In fact, we are happy to tell you where to get the very best fries. From divine thick Flemish fries to downright culinary options: these are the places to go!
Dik en lang
Dik en Lang (Thick and Long) at the Jan van Lieshoutstraat is a household name in Eindhoven, and not just because of its wonderful name. Here, you get a solid portion of hand-cut, thick (and long) Flemish fries with matching Belgian mayonnaise. But their real specialty? That is the 'Supertje catamaran speciaal'. A catamaran boat of frikandellen (deep-fried sausages), with fries, curry ketchup, and onions in the center. Ingenious.
The days when French fries topped with beef stew was the most exciting thing you could order in a snack bar are long gone. At De Frietbar on the Keizersgracht, they pimp your fries with all kinds of exotic toppings. From Italian truffle fries to teriyaki chicken fries and everything in between. They have elevated the well-known chili cheese fries to an art form. Not in the mood for something fancy? You can also get a portion of fries without bells and whistles.
From culinary highlights from China to crispy highlights from the airfryer. At De Frietaire on the Nieuwe Emmasingel, they fry everything in gigantic custom-made airfryers. Hence the name, in case you didn't immediately connect the dots. It's not just fries that thrive in hot air; snacks love it too. The loaded frikandellen and veggie chicken snacks make great options. The interior also takes you to new heights, because everything is in a kind of retro air balloon theme. Nice and airy, just the way we like it.
New in the world of fries in Eindhoven is Dirty Fries at Aalsterweg. The best dirty fries in Eindhoven, if they may say so themselves. When you see their loaded fries, you almost believe you are eating a healthy meal: there are enough vegetables on top to reassure your parents. They also sell burgers, salads, and buckets of chicken. So indulge yourself!
FRIET van Piet (Hein Eek)
You probably already knew that Piet Hein Eek at Strijp-R is the place to go for a good meal. But did you know that the Piet empire also has a design-worthy fries corner? The menu is nice and short, but very exciting. Go for regular fries with one of the homemade sauces, or loaded fries with mushrooms or chorizo. And of course, you top it off with one of the homemade snacks, such as the carrot curry or truffle croquette. Delicious!
