Ironically, French Fries, originally credited to be of Belgian origin, are a staple of American culture and cuisine.
One notable historian claimed that in the 17th century Spanish Netherlands, fishermen would fry sliced potatoes when the ice made fried fish to dangerous to catch. Now, like Dutch Apple Pie, Americans have adopted the foodstuff as their own.
Whether you dip them in ketchup, mustard, vinegar, tartar sauce, peanut butter, or even fish sauce, there aren’t many Americans who haven’t tried the famous fried food.
But where in Mansfield can you get your favorite fry?
