I found this discussion on the topic of Dutch hot chips, HERE
“But what stood out clearly were the fries, or Patat, as they call it. They’re medium-sized (larger than the ones at McDonald’s), with a golden-crisp exterior and a white, tender interior, piping hot. Of course it came with mayonnaise—but in their defense, it was more like Miracle Whip. And yes, it was delicious.” posted by Victorino Matus Permalink
" Patat just means “potato.” Frites is what you’d ask for if you want fries. Signs often advertise Patat Frites, which just means “potato fries.” You’ll also see signs for Vlaamse frites, which means “Flemish fries.” You won’t get better fries in Belgium, but in the Flemish areas you’ll find fries just as good as in the Netherlands.

They obviously had not been to St Marys, in Sydney, to taste the great chips, at the Dutch Fair, held at the Rembrandt Club!
