Denver – Manneken Frites


I was so excited to try Manneken Frites when I was home last week and we just barely squeezed it in. My mom and sister tried it a while ago and knew that it was just my thing. Mostly because they had poutine, which I have mentioned at least a couple of times on this blog. Love it! Unfortunately, poutine has been removed from the menu, possibly temporarily. Shucks! I wasn’t too disappointed though because I was mostly interested in trying a few of their many, many sauces. We ordered a double with three sauces: buffalo blue cheese, sauce andalouse (green pepper + onion), and chipotle mayo. My mom and sister already knew that the chipotle mayo was a must and they were right. The other two were great and all mixed well, but maybe we should have been a little more creative with our choices! The server mentioned that we somehow ended up with every orange sauce they offer. Oops! Didn’t even think of that. Honestly, it was nearly impossible to choose three sauces. They all sound really good.

These are the restaurants that I love trying. And whenever I have dreamed up imaginary restaurant ideas it always uses the same concept of doing one thing really well and offering lots of cool choices and varieties. I’ve mentioned how indecisive I am – I always appreciate having the option to choose more than one thing! Manneken Frites is a really fun place to go sample with friends. They also have hot dogs and beer if you want a more substantial meal. By the way, if you’re in Boston, Saus has a very similar menu and their poutine is really good! They also have waffles and ice cream, but I’ve only tried the poutine. I’ll have to go back soon and take some pics!

    Yay! Manneken Frites is in my neck of the woods. It’s one of our favorite weekend activities to walk down to Olde Town Arvada to check out the action and grab a bite. You picked a good weekend to visit. We had such nice weather!

      Oh cool! For some reason I had it in my head that you were more in the mountains. I used to hang around Olde Town fairly often in high school, but most of the businesses have changed since then. It’s become a really cool area! Lots of places I’d like to try – let me know if you have any recommendations! And yes, the weather was awesome! Wish I could have stayed longer.

      Very cool. I looked it up and it does look very similar! I like the concept. I think this place had a wasabi dip- I’ll have to try it next time! : )

    Oh.My.God. This post makes me want to have fries and the only access to fries I do have immediately are the ones in my freezer. And it’s morning here. Fine way to begin a Saturday morning? 😀
