It’s becoming rather a tradition – another year, another win by Nord-Pas-de-Calais in the best friteries in France awards. 

This year, the region, in Hauts-de-France, claimed a staggering seven chip shops in the top 15. This year’s overall winner was Dunkirk-based Chic Frite (whose slogan is “nos frites sont fraiches!”), followed by Chez Delphine, in Cambrai, in second place and Friterie Hersinoise, in Hersin-Coupigny, in third. 

It comes as no shock to French frite lovers  – Nord-Pas-de-Calais has won the competition, which is voted for by members of the public, every year since it began on the website. 

In fact, only five restaurants outside Hauts-de-France made it into the top 15 this year: 

  1. Frit’n’bier in Marsac-sur-l’Isle, Nouvelle-Aquitaine (8th) 
  2. Frites Bonnel in Angers, Pays de la Loire (10th) 
  3. Friterie chez Mel in Langres, Grand-Est (12th) 
  4. Au Petit Creux in Martot in Normandy (13th). 
  5. La Frite en Nord in Cherbourg, Normandy (14th) 

So now you know where to go if you’re feeling peckish…
