Description

The name of this modest cafe in the Heights means “salty-sweet,” and Salé Sucré has plenty of each available: the menu boasts nine savory and seven sweet crepe varieties. If you fancy French standbys like moules marinières (mussels steamed in white wine), coq au vin, or trout amandine, they’re also here. The cassoulet is one of the best in Houston, rich with buttery-soft coco beans, chunky chicken and duck sausage imported from Toulouse, roasted hunks of pork belly, and a whole confit duck leg. If you don’t want a sweet crepe for dessert, crème brûlée and chocolate mousse stand ready to serve. A full bar kicks out classic cocktails like Kir Royales, Sidecars, and The Montparnasse, a blend of Calvados, St. Germain, lemon juice, and Sauvignon Blanc.
