In Australia, you are given two choices of condiments to go with your chips/fries – tomato or BBQ sauce. Therefore, I had never tried mayonnaise with chips as it was one of those ‘weird things’ they did in Europe and definitely not what was done in Australia.
My first encounter with pommes mit mayo was my very first day of work when the guys took me to the local currywurst haus for a ‘traditional’ German meal. I liked what I tasted but I wasn’t completely sold on it.
In the past six weeks, I have grown to love my pommes mit mayo so much so that I now choose mayo over ketchup as my condiment of choice. In fact, I’ve only used my bottle of ketchup once and that was so I could have pommes mit mayo und ketchup. Fantastic combination.
If I ever return back to Australia, I think I’m going to have to invest in a bottle of mayo as I won’t be ever be able to eat my pommes without it again.
