When my husband told me about the sandwich place in Waupaca that we had to try, I said to him, “Wait, Waupaca? Really?” It’s a small town with the population of around 6,000, and it’s basically nestled in the middle of nowhere. First off, Sulten Belly is an absolutely adorable little restaurant. It has the small town charm you would expect. I love that the wall outside of the kitchen shares exactly where the ingredients come from, all locally sourced.
I love this rustic sign on the back of the restaurant where they have outdoor seating. The seating looked so welcoming, but it was incredibly hot and sunny, so we opted to sit inside.
Snag a table or take a seat at the counter. Take a minute with the menu, and order at the counter too. We all ordered one of the signature Sulten Belly sandwiches, they all come with the specialty side of the day. It happened to be a pasta salad with balsamic, which was absolutely delicious.
Typically if you order a BELT at a restaurant, it’s a BLT with egg, I’ve had a BELT burger before, butthis sandwich is the first time I’ve seen bacon replaced with crispy pork belly. The Wisco BELT ($12 – Crispy pork belly, provolone, fried egg, roasted garlic mayo, arugula, and tomato) doesn’t skimp on the crispy pork belly either.
If you’re looking for a sandwich with a lot going on, go for the Cajun Gobbler ($10.50 – House Smoked Cajun Turkey Breast, swiss, avocado, smoked bacon, chipotle mayo, arugula, and tomato)
On the simpler side, the Crispy Chicken Ranch ($10 – Frosted flake fried chicken, sharp cheddar, parmesan ranch, arugula and tomato) was perfectly satisfying.
We also shared a side of mac and cheese, because why not? It was incredibly creamy, and delicious.
They even have refrigerated items you can take home with you items like; beer cheese dip, lasagna, soups and more. If we had been driving straight home I probably would have grabbed a couple items for home, I mean who wouldn’t impulsively come home with beer cheese dip after a big lunch?
Check out Sulten Belly at 220 N Main St, Waupaca, WI 54981 I’m sure you’ll be as impressed as we were. I already can’t wait to go back.
