Is it just me, or are crepe and waffle shops popping up everywhere? I just keep noticing them and consequently entering their doors. Or, in the case of Provo's latest sweet-stop, entering their stand window to order. The Awful Waffle, just south of BYU campus, serves up crepes and waffles--both true to Belgium style. Their equipment and recipes come straight from Belgium. I have to say, I haven't had such a delicious from a restaurant in a long time. The texture was perfection and flavor of the batter was great!
We stopped by a few weeks ago for a date-night treat and were 100% satisfied. We tried a raspberry, Nutella and whipped cream crepe and a Belgium waffle with cinnamon sugar, strawberries and whipped cream. This waffle was slightly crisp on the outside and soft and pillowy yet dense on the inside. I loved it. I was reminded of a churro with the crunch of cinnamon and sugar atop.
And bonus: The Awful Waffle is right next to J-Dawgs, so make it a polish-kraut-special-sauce-meal with a Belgium waffle dessert. Sounds like a great date night to me!
