Pommes Frites (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

pommesfrites4I heard some rumours about a fry shop that opened recently in KL (Kuala Lumpur) (see my previous post), so I hopped over to the Malaysian capital and to my surprise I found not 1 but 2 shops in the same shopping mall.

I’ll report on the Ireland’s Potato shop (which is a part of a small chain) in a separate post.

Pommes Frites is located in the Sunway Pyramid shopping mall, some 30 mins outside town center. I expected another bad copy of the Belgian Fries concept but this guy really made his homework!

His shop is painted in the Belgian national colors (red, yellow, black), the difference between Belgian and French fries is very well explained, on the wall he even displayed the various translations of “fries” (which he of course nicked from my website :-) ).

So how about the fries themselves? I had a small portion with mayonaise (on the side). The fries, made with Bintje potato imported from Belgium – at least that is what the owner claims -, tasted quite good but where a bit greasy. Compared the Belgian standards the portion was small but for a price of 4.5 MYR (=  0.9 euro) one can not expect much more. The home-made mayonaise was surprisingly delicious.

I hope to publish a short interview with the owner soon.

Bottom line: a very good concept and reasonably good tasting fries. Keep up the good work!
