I grew up on Ore-Ida and McDonalds fries, so the idea of putting mayo on french fries was pretty alien to me. Then I stopped in Pommes Frites one day and saw the list of sauces available and tried one. I was hooked. This closet-sized shop in the East Village in NYC has some pretty good frites and the deal closer for them is the dizzying array of sauces that you can get to top them with. Here is the list:

Irish Curry - NEW!!!
Vietnamese Pineapple Mayo - NEW!!!
Roasted Garlic Mayo
Rosemary Garlic Mayo
Pesto Mayo
Dill Lemon Mayo
Smoked Eggplant Mayo
Curry Ketchup
Sweet Mango Chutney Mayo
Honey Mustard Mayo
Sweet Chili Sauce
Sundried Tomato Mayo
Horseradish Mayo
Peanut Satay Sauce
Parmesan Peppercorn
Blue Cheese
Cheddar Cheese Sauce
Barbecue Sauce
Sambal Olek - Hot Chili Paste
Mexican Ketchup
Wasabi Mayo
Dijon Mustard
War Sauce(frites sauce, peanut satay sauce & onion)
Curry Ketchup Especial(frites sauce, curry ketchup & onion)
Frites sauce(traditional European Mayo)
Especial (frite sauce, ketchup & onion)
Yellow Mustard
Malt Vinegar
Chopped Raw Onion
Sliced Jalapeno
Poutine is a French-Canadian dish made from a combination of French fries, chicken gravy, and curd cheddar cheese.

On this particular trip, I had a small order of frites (which is pretty big!) with rosemary garlic mayo and dill lemon mayo. Thier frites are crispy, somewhat greasy and very creamy inside, a perfect combination. The dill lemon is wonderful, with lots of dill and an assertive lemon flavor. The rosemary garlic is a bit strong for my taste; a little rosemary goes a long way. I've tried the mango chutney mayo and the poutine and highly recommend both of them. They also give free samples if you ask and you can try a couple of sauces to see what you like. It's pretty crowded most nights, but it's a walking food anyway, so I get it to go.
