Scout Notes: What do you get when you mix three out-of-work friends, a vacant storefront tucked ...What do you get when you mix three out-of-work friends, a vacant storefront tucked away on a cobblestone street in Haymarket, and a penchant for European street food? The best Belgian waffle you’ve ever (or never) had! Forget any soggy cruise buffet waffles you may have consumed, and definitely ignore any experiences involving burnt batter in a college dorm kitchenthis week’s deal gets you a fresh-from-the-iron Liege waffle and one of four to-die-for dipping sauces, for free. Hey, if it’s going to snow in October, Christmas may as well come early, right?
Full disclosure: I had no idea what a Liege waffle was before I paid Saus (rhymes with “house”) a visit. Now that I’ve had one, there’s no turning backthese babies are golden squares of warm, buttery bliss. With dough mixed fresh every morning, homemade sauces like nutella and lemon cream, and pearl sugar giving each waffle a crunchy caramelized coating, it’s hard not to fall in love, particularly on a cold day.
My favorite part of the Saus menu is the creativity; you can top their Improper Bostonian award-winning frites with a deep-fried egg, blanket them in gravy and cheese curds (poutine is so in right now), or smother them with sauces like Saturday Night Chive and Vampire Slayer (chock-full of garlic, naturally). The sandwiches are anything but standard; where else can you get a Dutch meatball-sausage crowned with cheddar duvel ale? Leave your passport at home, ‘cause Saus has you covered.
