In the Netherlands, fries are for sale in one flavor (that of fries). And well, if you want to go wild, you go for raspatat. And yes, some chip chains, such as Five Guys from England, offer fries with, for example, Cajun herbs, in addition to ‘regular’ fries. But at the potato corner chip chain you can order fries in 25 different flavors.
Potato Corner comes from the Philippines and is the largest chip chain worldwide. There are 1300 branches, dozens of which are in America, recognizable by the bright green interior. The company has been around for about 28 years.
The chip shop specializes in chips and in particular in flavored chips. We count 25 on the website . From chili barbecue to sour cream and from truffle to sweet corn. There are also striking flavors such as wasabi (which produces bright green fries), chocolate, kimchi and seafood .
Fries with a taste
How do they do that at Potato Corner? The principle is very simple. First the fries are fried in hot fat, then they are still warm in a large cylindrical container. A type of herbal salt with the taste of your choice is added. A good shake and the ‘flavored fries’ are a fact. So simple, but a huge success.
In the – quite hysterical – video below you can see how it works.
Make your own fries with a taste
It is actually bizarre that this principle has not yet broken through in the Netherlands. But you can also make fries with a taste yourself. For example, by making your own seasoning salt and this by mixing your – still warm – fries.
We have already made fries with seaweed salt. Or grind some dried mushrooms in a coffee grinder and mix them with a pinch of salt, for mushroom salt. And if you mix some pul biber (mild Turkish chili flakes) with a little nutritional yeast, a pinch of garlic powder and some salt, you have a Doritos-like topping for your fries. The possibilities are endless.
Some time ago, the Dutch company True Food Flavors also developed very cool natural vegetable powders that you can use to spice up all kinds of dishes. With this they won the Amsterdam Food Pitch in 2020 . For example, you can easily make a fries celeriac or a fries roasted garlic. The powders can be ordered online .
