Chipsy - new "Belgian Frite" and more on MadDougal

DavyTheFatBoy | Nov 10, 201107:00 PM

In the former Hummus place, a few steps above street level is this new shop specializing in french fries and other fried foods (Oreos, Pickles, etc).

I had their "Masala Fries", which were perfectly prepared crispy crunchy outside, soft inside and not at all greasy, dredged in some Indian spices. I liked them much better than I expected and will return. This may not have been the perfect appetizer before a potato stuffed Dosa at Indian Creperie around the corner - slightly heavy on the potatoes - would probably marry better with a Kati Roll from right next door to Chipsy.

They also have plain "Belgian" fries and many choices of mayo and non-mayo based dips. Note that they are all vegetarian here, unlike "true" Belgian fries done in beef tallow. For me the lack of a tallow is a plus.
