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.
The inaugural Food Truck Throwdown pitted Boston and New York food trucks against each other at Dewey Square on Oct. 13.
The 14 food trucks — seven from each city — offered a wide range of food choices, from Asian fusion to gourmet grilled cheese, and ice cream sandwiches to waffles.
