Canada could take a lesson from Belgium on how to make crispy fries. These fries were amazing. They were perfectly-seasoned and crunchy.

They gave a tray with three dips, which are all mayonnaise-based.

The white dip is a basic garlic vegenaise, though the garlic isn’t too strong.

The second dip is joppiesaus and had a nice, zesty flavor from curry and onion seasoning.

The final dip is andalouse and had tomato and mayo flavors with bits of pepper. The latter two sauces were our favorites, we couldn’t choose which we liked better. When we ran out of fries, we wished we had more just to dip in the sauces!
