Nestled on a bustling street, just steps from Union Oyster House and Faneuil Hall, is Saus. Opened during the 2008 recession by three locals ousted from their jobs, they shared a common love for Belgian’s national treat of pommes frites, or French fries. Tables are squeezed together with cute Tin Tin décor in a brightly lit space, highlighting its menu of Belgian snack food.
The pommes frites come in three sizes with several dipping sauces to choose from. Fries are served in a paper cone. Pommes frites are cut and fried to order, served with sauces made in-house. For our meal, we sampled the white truffle ketchup. Paired with the delicious crispy fries, the truffle ketchup was a great match for the deep-fried potatoes and best eaten hot.
Step into the Barking Crab, located at 88 Sleeper Street in Boston, and you’ll feel a mixture of pirate and little mermaid. Situated on the outskirts of the financial district, just across Fort Point Channel, this fisherman-themed seafood joint caters to both the tourist and the local. Whether you’re looking for some crustacean cuisine, a steak, or just some finger food, the Barking Crab is a nice fit.
