The food that unites us all is actually scoffed in remarkably different ways around the globe. From gravy to mayo, there's a chip eating country to suit everyone.

Here in the UK, we love our chips with some salt and vinegar – maybe a dollop of ketchup or some curry sauce (ummmmmm, curry sauce). But around the globe, there are some crazy chip eating habits going down.

World food trends


Canada: Poutine
A classic Canadian dish where chips are smothered in brown gravy and cheese curd (pictured above). Sounds pretty tasty.

Belgium: Frietje Stoof
This means chips (frietje) with beef stew.

Holland: Mayonnaise
Have you not seen Pulp Fiction? Come on now.



Singapore: Truffle fries
Poshing up their chips – the folks in Singapore like to cover their chips with indulgent truffle oil and occasionally, grated cheese.

Romania: Mujdei
In Romania eating chips means you can say goodbye to that post-dinner snog as mujdei is a popular garlic sauce, and is often accompanied with some crumbled sheep's cheese.

Netherlands: Patatje Oorlog
Also known as French Fries War. Oh yeah. This can differ from region to region, but it usually consists of mayonnaise, peanut sauce and chopped raw onion. That is one tasty war.

Chip war, huh. What is it good for?



Vietnam: Sweet & butter fries
Some restaurants in Vietnam serve their chips with soft butter and a sprinkling of sugar. This may become our pudding of choice.

America: Chilli cheese fries
You've got to love American food. Chips drowning in spicy chilli and covered in cheese. What more could a gal want?
