Don't forget that not all frites are automatically French fries. Belgian
frites, the way I know them, are long, thick, greasy, and yummy. French fries
are much smaller and usually not-so-well-done. I know them basically from
McDonald's and they taste exactly the way you could expect from McDonald's:
little taste at all, and you can eat tons of them and still be hungry.
Dutch fries are somewhere in the middle between those two (both in size and in
taste). I don't care much for them, but they are not bad.
