Pommes Frites (128 MacDougal St, New York) is an authentic Belgian fries shop. The fries are fresh cut, twice fried, and served in a cylinder.
The orders are available in either regular, large, or double. In addition, there’s a wide array of sauces to dip your pommes frites.
Each sauce is $1 or 3 for $2.50. I ordered the large size with a side of honey mustard mayo. I know, how un-original of me.
I love honey mustard; what can I tell you? My wife Marcela ordered a mix of the cheddar cheese sauce and the sambal oelek (hot chili paste).
Since they employ the double fry method, I knew these fries would be nice and crispy, but they were. The size of the fries is somewhere in between a steak fry and a standard fry, not a shoestring.
The fries were fantastic, but the sauces are where it gets good. I loved both sauces we had.
The honey mustard mayo was probably the creamiest honey mustard I’ve ever had, and the cheddar/sambal oelek mix had some nice heat.
There are 25 sauces to choose from, plus you can sample them, which is cool. There’s also poutine on the menu.
Poutine is a famous Canadian dish where the pommes frites are topped with cheese curds and gravy. If there’s one I regret I have, it’s not ordering it and also not sampling all of the other sauces.
