It is an extremely rare restaurant in France that does not make its own fresh mayonnaise. Even small French restaurants , at least those that depend on their client’s returning, also make their own mayonnaise. An unsurprising, exception is MacDonald’s France; they do not make their own fresh mayonnaise.
Since its creation mayonnaise has been a significant addition to many cuisines. In Belgium, and now also in France, you will see the traditional and tasty Belgian tradition of Belgian Fries; served in a paper cone with fresh mayonnaise on the side. The fries and fresh mayonnaise may be eaten in a restaurant or while walking down the street.
