I need this t-shirt.
This was on the back of one of the t-shirts for Saus!
What’s Saus you ask?? Well if your local to the Boston area, you should really check this place out!
Saus is a brand new eatery right in Government Center near Faneuil Hall!
Saus is a Belgian street food cafe and that means two glorious things: Frites & Waffles.
Baskets of hot salty crispy fries (or Frites!) served with a plethora of dipping sauce options!!
I met up with some lovely blogger ladies and we may or may not have devoured 4 baskets of Frites…well there were 9 of us!
They easily have 10-12 (maybe more) sauces on their regular menu, and they will also be offering a few rotating sauces in addition!
They make all of their sauces in-house, even the ketchups and mayos! They were also telling us how each sauce is made to be VERY flavorful, because if your choosing your favorite flavor, then chances are you love that flavor and want lots of it! Nothing bland here!
I definitely can’t remember them all, but I’ll tell you my favorites!
Pegasaus – This was one of the weekly specials, and I hope it comes back. It was a feta based dip and SO so flavorful!
Vampire Slayer – garlic, of course. But roasted garlic (none of their sauces use raw garlic), so it was intensely flavorful but didn’t overwhelm.
Other notables for me were the Samurai Sauce, and Truffle Ketchup!
There it is! I’m sure its amazing, but at this point I was trying to save room for dessert…and boy am I glad I did.
Belgian waffles. Oh my. I love love LOVE waffles, and Belgians just take it to the next level with their yeasted dough and caramelized sugar exterior. Remember, this was the highlight of the Belgian Beer Fest back in November??
We sampled 3 of these beauties, to be sure to cover each sauce (unfortunately we didn’t get to try the Nutella sauce…they are still perfecting the recipe :)
Berries and waffles. Classic and delicious.
Wow. This was like combining a waffle and a sticky bun…incredible. I even bought one to go for Brian :)
I actually think the Lemon was my favorite! Especially when dipped in leftover berry sauce. It wasn’t too tart, just subtle and creamy.
If I had to guess, I bet Nutella would top my list…but I’ll just have to return another day for that!
For a Thursday night, around dinner time, there was a pretty steady flow of customers for a place that just opened 2 days ago. I think the word is out and people are excited.
The best part is that they are located right amongst a strip of some of the most popular bars in Boston (right in line with Bell in Hand, Hennessey’s, Paddy O’s…you know where I’m talking about!), and they will be open until 2AM on Friday and Saturday…genius. I can’t think of a better post-bar food!
Also great to grab tourists in for a quick snack to fuel a day of walking and shopping in the city.
I think Saus will be around for a long time…I really hope so! I’m just psyched to know a place where I can get my Belgian Waffle fix year round! :)
