Which countries both claim to have first invented French fries?

The origin of the humble fried potato stick faces disputes from culinary experts. French historians describe the fries as “orphans of street cooking” that was a staple for “those of low birth.” In Belgium, fries are a national dish and symbol of national pride. Although both France and Belgium lay claim to them, the historical evidence is sketchy when it comes to Belgium. France’s historical records first show street vendors hawking fries before the French Revolution in 1789. Source: NYDailyNews.com
