Waffle, a dessert that looks like a badminton or tennis racquet, or a round net. It is a pastry that is BEST eaten with jam, syrup, butter, or ice cream.
Growing up, the closest I got to enjoying a waffle was at A&W Restaurants. Till today, A&W waffles do bring back memories.
As the years went by, the art of crafting waffles developed. Waffle World took waffles one step further. I tried their savoury and sweet waffles. More ingredients and flavours were added to the waffles menu. Their Salted Egg Yolk Waffle was uniquely named. Much like the Chocotop, the salted egg yolk was hardened on the ice cream. It’s an interesting, yet weird mash of salty salted egg yolk and sweet ice cream. However, there was still room for improvement in my world of waffles. I held on to the believe that there are better waffles out there.
Fast forward to today, waffles are hipster! Ate waffles at Antipodean Cafe at Atria Shopping Mall. Ate their Blueberry Ice Cream Waffle and Butterscotch and Ice Cream Waffle. Even though they were as simple as before, but these Antipodean waffles were softer and sweeter. Honey overflowed from the waffles!
Then I was introduced to the waffles at Fluffed Cafe & Dessert Bar in Taman Paramount. Deconstructed their Tiramisu Peanut Butter Waffles. Artsy designs, good use of composition, and the mixture of flavours blended very well together. The peanut butter ice cream went really well with the charcoal waffle. I’m Fluffed!
However, I was fluffed from the inside out by Inside Scoop in Damansara Jaya. Their nutella waffle blew me away! Nutella is heaven! Nutella and waffle mixed together is another universe in itself. The nutella waffle was topped with chocolate mint and vanilla flavoured ice creams.
A special mention to my #foodyfanstravel adventure in UK. The UK waffles were a class of their own. This particular waffle was from the site of the first coffee house in England. This site is none other than The Grand Cafe, befitting of its name.
Fast forward to today, waffles are hipster!
