Growing up I loved waffles. Primarily because of how infrequently we got them, and partially because I actually enjoyed them.
I usually got them when we would go to buffet brunches with family, and I would inevitably load them up with whipped cream, chocolate, and strawberries and proceed to feel ill after. I was a little glutton.
As I aged, I realized that I didn’t actually like waffles very much. They were usually too large, often too dry, and the toppings were the only good part (and I don’t particularly like whipped cream and fake strawberry sauce).
However, all of this changed when I visited Belgium in 2009 and had my very first fresh, Belgian wafel.
Since then, I have been on a mission to discover an equally as good wafel. Wannawafel in Victoria is the closest I’ve come.
There is a great selection of toppings to choose from, and the staff is generally very friendly. I’d definitely recommend a visit.
