I have been wanting to go to Saus on Union Street in the Faneuil Hall area since it first opened. A place that specializes in Belgian frites and waffles? What's not to love about that?
Saus is located on Union Street right next door to the Union Oyster House and the Bell in Hand. Genius location for a place that serves fried food.
I eventually decided on frites with the Saturday night chive sauce and the ole chipotle sauce.
The frites were fantastic! They were cut thin, they were crispy and they were coated in salt. They came in a fun, branded, paper cone.
I also ordered the veggie croquettes which were golden brown with the perfect crunch.
The waffle came hot and dusted with powdered with sugar.
The lemon cream was tart and refreshing and helped cut the sweetness of the waffle.
The salted caramel sauce was the stand out. You could taste the granules of sugar with every dunk. I had to talk myself out of eating the sauce with a spoon and licking the little plastic dish.
The last sauce, the berry berry, was a disappointment. It was actually too textured.
Moral of the story, chocolate and caramel win over fruit every time.
The Belgian fried specialties at Saus are decadent and super crave-able. We dined around 6:30pm and enjoyed it, but I am positive if we were eating it at 2:00am after coming out of Bell in Hand we'd love it even more. Saus is open on Friday and Saturday nights until 2:00am.
Have you been to Saus? What sauces did you love for the frites and the waffle?
