Walk past all the 'snackbars' with their fake fries; stop at this hole in the wall for great, fresh and delicious fries! You won't be dissapointed! A potatoe in the morning makes your portion of fries in the afternoon; it's a 'must try'!

As we were walking in Alkmaar we saw a few people with a cone shaped paper bag with fries. As it looked funny and tasty we decided to be bold and asked them where we could find this. Well, the location was near. It is just an open kitchen manned by 2 people. They ask you what size you want... More

I tried many frites in both the Netherlands and Belgium during a recent 2 week visit. These were so far superior to anything else that I tried, even the purported best in Amsterdam. This is just a tiny takeaway shop opposite the Kaasmarkt in Alkmaar, but they are serious about their frites and the sauces - such a big selection.... More

Can't recommend this place enough. Just on the opposite side of the cheese market. So many sauces and the fries were made to perfection!

If you like your fries thick, Belgian style, then you can't go wrong here. They eve serve "stoofvlees" a favorite Belgian addition to the fries.

The fries at De Vlaminck are in my opinion one of the best in The Netherlands. Be aware though this is not a restaurant. This is a take-away that serves Flemish fries, "stoofvlees" and meatballs and has a great selection of sauces to go with it. On buisy days you'll find quite a lineup waiting for these great deep-fried potatoes,... More
