Frites in Brugge, Belgium

Another of my favorite cities is Brugge which is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders in the Flemish Region of Belgium, in the northwest of the country, and the seventh-largest city of the country by population.

Bruges, Belgium is the most picturesque city of Old Flanders. Wonder at medieval

rooftops that step up to the sky, a history that spans back to the Vikings, and canals that credit the city as one of Europe's “Venice of the North,” the enjoyment expands to every sense.

One of my must dos when in Belgium is having frits (french fries). Supposedly the inspiration for french fries (American soldiers reportedly ate them during World War II

and confused Belgium with France when they were recreated at home), these Belgium cuisines in Bruges are usually a little crispier here, and the sauce on top is almost as important as the potato itself, Mayonnaise is the classic sauce, although many Belgians love andalouse – a mixture of mayonnaise, tomato puree, and pepper.

Oh, and it's a UNESCO World Heritage City too.
