      when they first opened they did not charge extra for the premium sauces--I think they still should not charge 75 cents extra for each choice of flavored mayo-

        They've always charged for premium sauces at Pommes Frites, and I've been going there since the week they opened. They always had a small selection of sauces that were the usual suspects in Belgium that were offered free (I think the curry sauce was one), and I believe in the early days they had a special "sauce of the day" (or the week) that was offered free as well. I'm in luck that my favorite is the plain Frites Sauce.

          really? I never remember having to pay for any sauces until recently.
          Also, I dream of the return of their hawaiian pineapple honey mustard! so good, but apparently not enough people agreed with me...

            I agree with both of your statements rds246
            have you tried the Vietnamese pineapple--it's really good and has a bit of zing

                That's the way to fry them properly.

              I agree with the horse fat method meatme. I have never personally had them as such, but after reading jeffrey steingarten's The Man Who Ate Everything I have been dying to try some twice-fried horse fat french fries.

                Apparently that's what McDonald's in France uses. Have they changed it?

                Try the poutine! Fries smothered in chicken gravy and cheddar cheese curds. soooooo good.

                  I don't like the poutine there. I think their fries are too good to cover with that stuff.

                    I did not like their poutine because they did not do it right. I crave for the poutine that I had in Canada!
