My favorite are Liege Waffles, which are made with pearl sugar, creating a crackly caramelized crust. I was really excited to hear about Zenneken’s, a café featuring authentic Belgium waffles and a slew of topping choices. Amy and I got a plain and one topped with Nutella and caramel. Sadly, it was not the waffle I was looking for. There were on the tough and chewy side, and the flavor was a single note – sweet, too sweet. The waffles were also quite pricey: $4.70 for the plain, .50 cents for toppings (1.00 for fruit).
I’m now pinning my hopes on Saus, a new Belguim waffle and fry placed downtown.
