OUR TrucK


The Bruges Brothers are BEYOND excited to serve you! On the streets of Chicago, at the festivals or at your special event: be it a wedding, corporate event, birthday party, prohibition-themed dance party (yes...we did), or any other occasion requiring great food served hot and fresh! 2017 will be our third year of service and we are gearing up to spread our wings even further than before; we'd love YOU to be a part of it! Please contact us via the 'BOOK US' link above to find out how we can make YOUR special event even 'special-er'!

 We began in 2014 by asking ourselves: "Why should fries be on the side when they taste so darn good?" Building on our founding brother's experiences backpacking through Europe, we found inspiration in Belgian street food and particularly the delicious 'double-fried frite' technique, which delivers a crispy outside and a creamy, fluffy fresh, potato center. With our paper cone frites receptacle, as well as traditional Belgian sauces like Samurai and Tiger we pay tribute to our inspiration, while pushing the boundaries of flavor with our signature Comeback Sauce (among other amazing sauces), and frying our frites in a proprietary blend of Beef and Duck Fat, which imparts a rich complexity found nowhere else. 

And who could forget our deliciously filling Signature Entrees?!?!  Serving favorites like our 'Braised Oxtail Poutine', 'Currywurst', and 'Comeback Fish and Chips' has seen us transition from "Who ARE these guys?" to "You gotta TRY these guys!!!"  Foraging the freshest potatoes and best local ingredients to craft our original dishes and exciting flavors hasn't hurt either. Keep an eye out for seasonal staples like the 'Chimichurri Hanger Steak Frite' and Cubs Baseball tribute 'Chicago Dog Frite!'

Whatever the menu this week, our Beef and Duck Fat Frites always live up to their reputation, either paired with our hand-crafted Sauces, or as the base of our delicious Entrees! Keep an eye out for us! Find us on the web and follow us on the streets.  Get in line, we're serving something delicious.

Hand-Forged Frites


It's a simple but delicious concept.  Hand-cut potatoes, 'double-fried' in a signature blend of Beef and Duck Fat until crisp. Salted to delicious perfection.

Then we complicate things. Our Loaded Cones: full-fledged meals in a cone, chef-driven and street ready. Flavor on another level.

OUR SAUCES.

 All of our sauces are hand-crafted recipes, each adding their own dynamic to the Frites.  We create our own versions of Belgian classics like Tiger and Samurai Sauces, alongside our own proprietary Sauces like Comeback,  Garlic Aioli, or House Ketchup.  The brief descriptions below are but a shadow of the flavors to behold in person...the best way find out is to experience them for yourself!  

TIGER SAUCE:  a spicy and bright horseradish, lemon, and black pepper aioli. A traditional Belgian Aioli.

SAMURAI SAUCE:  a traditional Belgian Chili Mayo.  

SWISS FONDUE: a deliciously gooey blend of white wine, Swiss and Gruyere cheeses.

HOUSE CURRY:  England meets India in our mild yet complex Brown Curry sauce, made with fresh ginger and toasted spices.

BRAVAS SAUCE:  A smoky and complex tomato-based sauce with Paprika, Onion, Garlic, Tomato. A key component of our Papas Bravas Entrée Cone!

BLUE FONDUE:  a warm Roquefort Blue Cheese and white wine fondue cheese sauce.

GARLIC AIOLI - a blend of Roasted Garlic, mayo and love.

COMEBACK SAUCE - our proprietary Mississippi Remoulade has too many ingredients to list! Come see why it is the house favorite as well as the fan favorite! Then 'comeback' for more!

 

OUR Loaded CONES.

 Chicago street food is about freshness and flavor, and we do our best for lunch and dinner.  Everything is cooked to order and delivered hot and fresh; ready to eat in our handy LOADED CONES: our frites loaded high with delicious ingredients paired with sauces. Think: full meal in a cone!

 Try as we may: we just can't seem to prepare enough of our Braised Oxtail Poutine to feed our ravenous fans!  We'll put our beer-battered Fish and Chips up against ANY challengers for 'Best in the City!'  Our menu is changing every week, but some of our favorites never let us down, and all of them come atop our Signature Frites!

BRAISED OXTAIL POUTINE:  Oxtail slow-braised in Red Wine and Thyme, rendered into a gravy, then poured atop our frites with Wisconsin Sharp Cheddar, Oxtail gravy and crisp leeks.

FISH AND CHIPS:  our take on the pub classic:  Wild Caught Alaskan Cod dipped in our  house beer batter, fresh-fried to order and drizzled with our proprietary Comeback remoulade and crispy capers. FAN FAVORITE!!!

CURRYWURST:  Freshly griddled Bavarian Brat, covered with our House Curry, Carmelized Onions, Garlic Aioli, with a dash of Crushed Peanuts

PAPAS BRAVAS: Spanish Chorizo roasted with Pablanos peppers, doused in Bravas sauce,  a zig and a zag of Garlic Aioli, and a dash Crispy Bacon.

CROQUE MADAME:  Griddled Ham Off the Bone,  Swiss Fondue, a dash of Dijonnaise, topped with (BAM!) a Sunnyside Egg and a some buttered breadcrumbs. SEE SPOLIGHT BELOW!

Spotlight: Croque Madame


The fan favorite 'Croque Madame' Frite is our spin on the classic French bistro sandwich of the same name. Ours starts with our delectable Beef and Duck Fat Fries, which we slather with our ooey, gooey, Swiss Fondue cheese sauce, griddled ham-of-the-bone, a zigzag of tangy Dijonnaise, and top off with a Sunnyside egg sprinkled with toasty breadcrumbs. Some call it breakfast, some call it lunch or dinner...we call it delicious any time of day!
