We all love us some Wafels & Dinges and their wonderful Belgian wafels. We are especially partial to Liege wafels with spekulous on top. Looks like the concept is traveling – all the way to the wilds of Edmonton, Canada.
Eva Sweet sells Belgian waffles from a van with their logo plastered on the side. These waffles are made with pearl sugar from Belgium, just like W&D. Their waffle irons, which can produce eight fresh waffles in two minutes, are also from Belgium. Bamir Basha spent five years selling waffles from a van on the streets of Brussels. That’s where he met his Canadian wife, Patricia, who was there on a vacation, and they decided to bring Belgian waffles back to Canada.
There are lots of toppings available (strawberry, chocolate and blueberry, to name a few), as well as real whipped cream. The waffles are crispy on the top, and soft on the inside – they have a slight sugary crunch that makes them feel exotic. [Edmonton Journal]
How do you know they’re Canadian waffles? Because one of their flavors is maple syrup. Now they need to get some spekulous and learn how to spell wafels!
