There can be few better symbols of the cosmopolitan Malta of 2019. A food truck dedicated to Belgian grub has recently launched, changing its location sporadically, and it accepts cryptocurrencies as payment.
The orange food truck is called ‘The Belgian Fry’ and its speciality is, of course, chips, a treat many Belgians believe were actually invented in their country.
The food truck promises to cook its chips in the traditional Belgian way, made out of a specially chosen strain of potatoes to ensure the final product is crunchy on the outside and deliciously fluffy on within.
The chips come with a variety of sauces, from the classic mayonnaise, ketchup, and tartare to more adventurous options such as sweet onion, satay and the ominous-sounding ’dangerously spicy’.
If you’re not in the mood for chips, there are plenty of other traditional snacks on the menu too, such as the Bicky Burger (a mix between chicken, pork and horse minced meat), the Frikandel hot dog, the vegetarian Bami oriental and, of course, the croquettes.
Everything on the menu is insanely cheap too, with no item priced higher than €3.50.
The food truck was launched earlier this year by two Belgian brothers, both of whom are chip aficionados.
Happy sailors of Eco Donut Boats with a large portion of fries to share, thanks for stopping by!
“As Belgians living in Malta, we would honestly make a pilgrimage to Brussels just to cosy up to a cornet of frites and an accompanying meat snack (and we have done),” they said on their food truck’s homepage. “Because we couldn’t find typical Belgian fries in Malta, we decided to serve the real thing on Maltese soil.”
“Now, you can just come to The Belgian Fry for those tasty fries you’ve been craving for, right here in Malta!”
