Yet another one of my last days down in the Financial District, and the Wafels & Dinges truck finally showed up! I was so excited to get to try them finally before I left for good. (Actually, I’m pretty sure this was my last day ever down there, so it was excellent timing.) I wound up having a long conversation with one of the guys working there while they made my wafel fresh… they were both very cool and fun to talk to, but of course, held my wafel hostage! 🙂
Yes… come to me, my preciousss
A BACON WAFEL! with the bacon embedded, banana slices and maple syrup. All that’s missing is peanut butter, or it could have been an Elvis take (which I told them, so if they’ve started selling that combo in the time since, it was MY IDEA YOU CAN THANK MEEE!). 🙂 I have to say, I was really impressed by the wafel. I hadn’t expected to like it that much, eat half, get rid of the other half (my coworkers surprised me with a red velvet cake that day, actually), but I totally inhaled it all. Crisp bits of bacon littered throughout a crisp but soft wafel (I waited a bit to eat it, so I’m sure the maple syrup absorbed into it, softening it up a bit)… the banana did amazing things with the salty, smokey bacon… I just really enjoyed my wafel more than I’d thought would be possible. I don’t like waffles in general, but was game to try this Belgian kind. I was very happy.
