Saus- Boston

With just two items, Belgian style fries and waffles, offered on the menu, Saus is a simple, no frills operation located just a short walk away from Boston's bustling Government Center.

Belgian Style Fries
So how exactly are Belgian fries any different, if at all, from the traditional French fries that we're accustomed to? The answer lies in the outside skin or "shell" of the fry. Belgian fries possess a harder shell which translates into a crispier and crunchier fry. But the real magic of Saus is not so much the fries as it is the various dipping sauces that are available to accompany the lonely and naked sticks of potato. If you don't already know by now, I am in fact a bacon lover and so I naturally selected the bacon parm dipping sauce. The dip was served warm and the cheese was delicious. I will have to go back and try all of the rest! (and I need to try the poutine as well).

Salted Caramel Waffle
The only other menu offering is waffles. I ordered the salted caramel waffle which tasted just as delicious as I had imagined it to. The fresh waffle was warm and the caramel was gooey, sweet and just a tad bit salty. I love sweet and savory combos.

Ambiance: 3 out of 5
Service: 3 out of 5
Food: 4 out of 5
Verdict: Saus needs to expand into food trucks and feed the mass of drunk people with its fries and delicious dipping sauces.
