There are French fries, and there are frites … and now there’s Frites Street, a brand-new, gourmet Belgian fry food truck that hit Valley streets last month.
Frites Street serves up some of the finest fries available anywhere on wheels, as well as a roster of golden brown and delicious entrees and revolving specials. Vegan and gluten-free options will have a constant home on the menu, but it’s the authentic process the potatoes go through that are both the stars and the driving force behind this food truck.
“It’s a slow process, but that’s intentional,” said Braden Jones, who co-owns the truck with longtime friend and industry pal, Philip “Flip” Isard. “We spent six full months perfecting our fries, and the final process takes a full 12 hours from the time they’re whole spuds to golden brown and delicious.”
In other words, these guys are serious about their fries. So serious, in fact, that in addition to the extended cooking process, these tasty little taters are hand-peeled and topped with from-scratch sauces (think roasted onion or chili lime aioli, jalapeno ketchup or stout honey mustard, among others) and top-notch proteins and produce.
