Waffle King, Dover Gardens | I Only Eat Desserts

After half a year I finally found you reese peanut butter cups for $3. Okay yes this post was supposed to be about the Waffle King but I couldn’t help but sneak in such a win on this glorious day called life ;) Let’s get back on track! The smell of warm buttery cake wafted throughout the Waffle King – how could I not feel at home? Our waiter went through the entire menu with us and even let us have a sniff of some violet tea leaves (yup that was how dedicated he was).

Sitting 10 centimetres away from the waffle iron with only glass separating us, I could watch the whole cooking process from balls of batter rolled through a sugar pearls filled bowl to the waffle iron lid coming down squishing the batter into waffles. The result: extremely fresh waffles with a slightly crispy outside and a warm spongy-soft inside. A sweet crunch from the sugar pearls also added a nice surprise ;) The tasting platter came with dollops of milk, white and dark chocolate, tangy strawberries (for the waist line of course), creamy vanilla icecream and good old whipped cream – you’ll be able to live out whatever crazy waffle fantasies you have!

C’s cinnamon waffle was covered in Belgium syrup, dusted with cocoa and served with a scoop of vanilla icecream – cinnamon lovers (like C) would love this. Sadly I’m not part of this fan club and found the cinnamon to be quite overpowering.

I love finding these small suburban gems, those places you don’t know about unless you’re actually looking for it – blink and it’s gone! They’re open pretty much all the time (Tues – Sun from 10am till 10pm) so a great spot to pop in after a Thursday late night shopping, a movie or just after Marion shopping centre. Although a bit on the pricey end, I don’t think I will ever go back to reheated pre-made waffles that a lot of places are dishing out these days. Nothing beats freshness!
