    Pommes Frites is a German phrase not a Belgian one.

    Love the video, love these type of shorts but at times they feel a bit rushed and would love to see the footage stretched out just a bit more. Keep up the great work :)

    ive always wondered what kind of oil they use and why its different than making it at home, the oil is sometimes seasoned with everything else they cook in it but most of the time its not so why is it different?

    I've had the menu tab for their website open for OVER a month on my work computer. I occasionally would look at the sauces and dream of heading to NY for a weekend just to try their fries.

    this is nice to see Americans are picking up. french fries are bullshit compared to Belgian fries with mayo or stoofvlees

    What kind of dumb container is that to have both your fries and sauce in? So you get sauce for like 5 fries then you're done? I mean I'll gladly eat them no sauce but shit there's gotta be a better way to serve them than that.

    Asfar i can see, as a Belgian..
    These actually look 100% authentic.
    complete with the sauce & onions on top ^^

  • Fluffy Meowington

    Mayo on fries is like putting orange slices in Lasagna. I'm sure there's someone who'll like it, but it's *wrong*.

    I don't think I really know 'how they get made' from this video. Despite the title.

    make crispy fries and drown them in sauce to make them soggy

    Funny to watch if you're from Belgium. Whoever made these didn't do it like it should. He's wrong for not peeling of the skin. Imo that's disgusting. Never got why they call it French fries either since Belgian fries are the best.

    That was more, "watch 'em get made" than how they are made.

    This video would have been way better if it was longer. Might have been really interesting if it was even 3-5 minutes, but doing all this work to convey a few images and a few lines of text is way overkill. This could have been a slideshow of... 3 captioned images or so. How long did this video take to render and then upload? I'm just trying to say, take advantage of the medium. I appreciate the effort.
