Do you get jittery before a meeting? Does speaking in public make you uncomfortable? That’s alright, because we have the perfect feel-good antidote. Just rent a car and drove out of Brussels and give in to the best comfort food ever; we mean, ‘’les frites’’! (or whatever you want to call them: French fries, skinny fries, chips…)
Yes, there are 5000 fritkots in Belgium but you deserve the very best
Although they are universally called French fries, some say the frieten were born in Namur. In any case, you can savour the best fries in the country at Fritkot Big Moestasje, near Jette’s train station, 4 miles (6 km) north of Brussels. Did you know the secret to achieving perfectly crispy fries largely depends on the fat temperature that must be in between 175-180 °C (347°F and 356°F) during the frying final phase? Now, you know. Enjoy!

Your body craves savoury carbohydrates when you are stressed
At just 4 miles (6 km) South of Brussels, Ixelles is the home of Fritkot Bompa. The local landmark is proud of its Belgian fresh potatoes cooked in its daily renewed beef dripping. And if this doesn’t make your mouth water, the chip shop also offers a large choice of awesome homemade sauces.

Belgians eat 35 lb (16 kg) of fries every year and so will you.
