In Belgium, where hot, salty chips smeared with mayonnaise are a national institution, tampering with traditional "frites" sounds like a recipe for trouble.Brussels planners launched a competition last year to find a new design for what they call the "Fritkots of the Future".The issue is a serious one in Belgium, whose claim of inventing "frites" is disputed by its bigger neighbor France.Brussels has dozens of privately owned and operated fritkots too, but only locations owned by the city of Brussels are set for the remodeling, including the fritkot outside the Art & Design Atomium Museum, a key tourist draw, as well as Place de la Chapelle, near the city's famed antiques market.Belgium claims frites were invented in the southern French-speaking city of Namur.Kemal, who has operated his stall at Place de la Chapelle for 34 years, said the newly designed stalls will help put Belgium's frites on the map.
