16 Unique Toppings for French Fries

As with potato chips, there are a great variety of flavors that go well with French fries (or “chips”, as the case may be). While there are some nearly-universal favorite toppings for French fries (salt, ketchup, and mayonnaise), there are also many that are specific to certain regions.

  • Cheese, Carne Asada, Sour Cream, and Guacamole (US)
  • Cheese Curds and Gravy (Canada)
  • Cheese Powder (Philippines)
  • Chopped Raw Onions (Netherlands)
  • Curry sauce (Ireland)
  • Garlic (US)
  • Lemon (Mexico)
  • Malt Vinegar (UK)
  • Mint Cilantro Sauce (Pakistan)
  • Mustard (Norway)
  • Oregano (Greece)
  • Peanut sauce (Netherlands)
  • Remoulade Sauce (Denmark)
  • Sugar and Butter (Vietnam)
  • Turkey Stuffing, Peas, Cheese, and Gravy (Canada)
  • White Vinegar (Canada)

    Have you ever tried choco fudge and vanilla sundae? Cool dip for hot french fries. The saltiness of the fries is balanced by the sweetness of the sundae 🙂

    Cheese curds and gravy is called POUTINE, orginally from Quebec.

    Turkey Stuffing is big in Newfoundland, they call it simply DRESSING.
