Belgian Delights in Salt Lake City

I am super excited because we discovered an authentic Belgian waffle and frites shop right here in Salt Lake City! Its called Bruges Waffles & Frites and it is located near the Rio Grande at 366 W. Broadway. The place was started by a guy from Bruges, it has been open for more than a year and they may be opening a second shop.

You may recall me posting earlier that Bruges is my favorite place from our honeymoon. Just the other day I was pining for those famous Belgian Frites. And now I can have them anytime I want here in SLC.

Today we sampled the frites and five different sauces - mayonnaise, aioli, curry ketchup, sezuan, and greens. We also tried their famous sandwich - the Machine Gun or Mitrailleuse. The Machine Gun is a large piece of French bread with merguez lamb sausages, a pile of frites and andalouse sauce (mayonnaise, basil, red pepper, garlic, mustard, cayenne pepper). The waffles will have to wait until the next visit.

The Machine Gun, frites and many sauces!

My love waiting for our food outside Bruges.
