Frituur/ Eethuis De Laet (Antwerp, Belgium)
Koningin Astridplein 39, 2018 Antwerp, Belgium
Frituur/Eethuis De Laet is a huge, trashy looking snack bar at the square in front of the main station. It caters to a broad variety of clients, notably immigrants, (Dutch) tourists, and local drunks (particularly in the evening). It has all snacks of a normal Belgian frituur (snack bar), but also various real meats, from spareribs to rotisserie chicken.
I get a small fries (€2.30) with mayo (+€0.30). Desire the fact there is no Belgian to be found – this night the place is run by three nice Romanian guys – the fries are very well prepared: crunchy outside, soft and potato-y inside. The mayo is a bit too soft.
Bit seedy, but remarkably good quality for a snack bar in such a location.
