Vancouver: Fritz European Fry House

french fries are like hugs

It's no secret I love fries.  Well, potatoes more generally, but especially this deep-fried variety.

I miss Montreal poo-tin like crazy.  
 miss Toronto's dirrtttyyy fry trucks.  
It might be safe to say I miss food as much as I miss my people.

I can't very well replace my Toronto friends, but I can replace food.  Then I could use that food to replace my feelings...I think that's funny.  I know my friends back home are rolling their eyes.

I was successful in finding the perfect french fry.  My sister took me to Fritz last week.  Then I went again this weekend. I tried to go today, but they don't open until 4:30 pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

It's obvious I just can't get enough of these:

That's mango-chutney dip.  Now it was described to me as "AMAZING".
I thought it was okay.  It's like mayo with curry.
Fritz's fries are fryer-fresh, piping hot, crispy, well-salted, and delicious.  It tastes amazing whether you're tall, short, female, male, drunk, sober, rich, poor...THAT is the the joy of the french fry.  Universal.

Fritz's poutine - although they use mozzarella as opposed to proper curds - is still deliciously passable.  They have a long list of dips - very reminescent of Pomme in NYC.  

Prices are reasonable and service is great.  They give it to you the way you want it - to eat as you walk, to eat at home, to eat there.  If there's a line-up, as there likely is in the weehours, it's quick.  Don't get discouraged.

I love this place.
