Eat at Saus

Have you noticed I've been posting more often lately? I have a freelance deadline, so doing anything other than actual work is impossibly alluring right now. Perhaps I should start writing a novel....

At the recommendation of our savvy friends at Boston Zest, we went to check out Saus on Friday night. We had a good, chilly evening walk over to Union Street, by the Union Oyster House. Saus is small, friendly and fast-food casual, and they offer just Belgian fries and waffles. Both are accompanied by your choices from a creative list of sauces. There's homemade ketchup, sea salt, and vinegar, too.
Here's the menu, spread across a large chalkboard above the frying and waffle prep area. Click to enlarge:

We split an order of reasonably good pommes frites with parmesan-bacon sauce for our main course — and made sure to leave room for dessert. I had a warm, crispy waffle with homemade nutella; my husband ordered his with salted caramel.

Here's what mine looked like after I forced myself to pause, put down my fork, and take a photo:

Delicious. And yet not outrageously rich, mostly because the waffle is not huge and they don't go overboard with the sauce. This is not to suggest that you'll get a skimpy serving, either — it's just right. We were able to walk home at a reasonable pace, without feeling bloated, ill, or excessively guilty.  Just somewhat guilty. Next time, we'll skip the frites.

I'm sure we'll be back, because I need to try a waffle with salted caramel sauce. I couldn't photograph my husband's because it had disappeared so quickly. (The same thing happened to Boston Zest.)
