Saus is run by Chin, Tanya and Renee; a group of friends who came up with this idea while trying to figure out what would satisfy their lunch cravings while working at a desk job in the area. They came up with this idea for Belgian street food specializing in fries and waffles with various SAUSES that make it delicious.
I joined Megan, Michelle, Meghan, Bianca, Bridget, Rachel, Elizabeth and Daisy for a delicious tasting of the fries and the sauces that en company them.
Now lets talk Saus, shall we? Well there was truffle ketchup, Saturday night Chive, Samurai Saus, Bacon Parm, Cheddar and Duvel Ale, Presto Pesto, Curry Ketchup, Ole Chipotle and Vampire Slayer plus complimentary sauce of homemade mayo, homemade ketchup and malt vinegar with red pepper flakes.
Here's a handful of sauces. I'd be lying if I could tell you exactly what was what.
In addition, there was a handful of Weekly Specials including my favorite the Green Monster.
This sauce was deliciously sweet and spicy at the same time. A perfect combination in my book. I also LOVED the cheddar bacon one and the cheesy beer combination. The pesto saus was also a winner. (Bottom left).
It was fun to hang out with the boston food bloggers and enjoy some nice fries!
I also loved how passionate Chin was and how open he was to suggestions.
But obviously the best part of the night was grazing on these mouthwatering fries. And what's beter than fries? Dipping sauces!
I unfortunately had to scoot before trying the waffles but please view the other blogs for comprehensive reviews on everything I missed.
and last by not least...
(funny story about Bridget- we used to work together at GapKids when we were in High School and we hadn't seen each other since we were 18! And now ten years later, we meet again at a Blogger Event. Too too funny : )
(Thanks Megan and Daisy for allowing me to use some of your photos!)
Friday night I headed out to Back Bay Social Club to celebrate my best friend Courtney's birthday. We decided to have a girls night with Court's closest friends from college and high school. It was a really fun night where a lot of wine was consumed and lots of delicious food!
Located right on Boylston Street between Gloucester and Fairfield, the atmosphere is inspired by a time when social clubs were popular for cocktails, conversations and community. It has a delicious food and a laid back atmosphere.
My friend Stephanie and I decided to split two dishes. The first was off the Starters menu: Pumpkin Ravioli.
Four rather large raviolis with pumpkin sage and a butter sauce. I personally loved it and made me miss fall when I ate pumpkin all the time!
After this, Steph and I shared the Butter Roasted Cod.
The puree was my inspiration for a dish I made Monday (will post about it later this week). I loved it. I think it was a combination of celery root and cauliflower in the puree. This dish was melt in your mouth delicious. It was mouthwatering and filling at the same time. Sometimes I order fish and I'm still hungry after but not with this dish. It was hearty and filling and perfectly cooked.
After dinner, we enjoyed more drinks and ended the night with cupcakes.
Happy Birthday to my best friend!
I definitely recommend Back Bay Social Club. The atmosphere was really fun and the food and service was really good. Check it out if you are ever in the neighborhood.
Have you been to either of these places? What did you think?
