Welcome to the sausage seventh heaven.
Admittedly, we were a little sceptical about this concept sausage restaurant behind the Centre Pompidou. But no, it’s far from a greasy sausage with McCain frozen fries. Here, it’s all about sausages made by hand in the basement or from a selection of well-sourced producers, in an on-trend space (think exposed stone and wooden tables) with Leonard Cohen and Véronique Sanson covers playing in the background.
There’s a choice of eight sausages, served hot-dog style or with a side, for €13.50 with a drink at lunch. The Chanmé Chiang Mai (pork, ginger and lemongrass) is plump and fragrant, and the smoked Keyzer Sozis, a Montbéliard IGP sausage, is excellent, served with crispy fries, cabbage salad or a lovely vinegary sauerkraut. To go alongside, there’s loads of homemade sauces like smoked paprika or curry and coriander. The indecisive sausage fans should opt for the sharing platters to get a bit of everything.
Reasonably priced with quality ingredients and a friendly atmosphere, this place does what it says on the tin – and we’re really quite smitten over Saucette.
