Pomme Frites

Pomme Frites, the famous french fries joint in the East Village, has about 25 different dipping sauces for the fries. Any favorites/recommendations out there?

      Is it true they let you sample as many as you want?? That's cool.

      1. Poutine!!! Parmasean Peppercorn as well. Yum!!

        FYI the more beers you have before coming here the better it tastes :)

        1. I like the curry sauce. It's served heated which adds a great touch. I was there a few weeks ago. The place is a lot cleaner than it used to be. I think it's also under new ownership. I haven't been there for a long time, so this may be old news.

            1. "Critics" have always rated parmesan peppercorn as best. Good old belgian-style "frite" sauce made from a mix of ketchup, mayo and the onions they keep loose on the counter works well, and I believe is a free addition to whatever else you get.
