Falling in Waffle Love at Wafels and Dinges

Wafels and Dinges Truck Review
New York and food trucks definitely go together.  Hot dog carts and salty pretzels are long time staples but these days the array of sweet and savory food truck offerings is amazing.  When the Wafels and Dinges truck came on the scene I noticed on their Twitter feed that one of the trucks spent Sundays parked about ten blocks from my apartment.  That was just far enough away to resist regular temptation but close enough to maybe go check them out sometime.

But before I even had the chance to plan a visit, they decided to make the temptation more irresistible.  While I was out walking the dog on a lovely Sunday afternoon, I caught the aroma of waffles.  The smell lures you in and forces you to come face to face with a big yellow truck.  Festooned with waffle themed decorations and humorous sayings it's manned by two friendly and quick-moving guys in red aprons.  There's a line.  There's always a line.  And as you stand there, you watch the folks who are picking up their orders and you catch the smell of hot waffles as they walk past and you can hardly wait.

I'm not typically a huge lover of waffles.  They're good but I don't crave them.  Or rather, I didn't used to crave them.  But that damn yellow truck has ruined my resolve.  I ordered 'de throwdown.'  The waffle, served with warm spekuloos (cookie butter) spread that beat Bobby Flay in a challenge.  I didn't see that particular episode so I don't know what Bobby Flay made for the throwdown.  But, after tasting this, who cares what he made, really.

I picked up my waffle and got an up close and personal smell experience.  Then I took a bite of the crispy dough and the warm, oozing spekuloos spread in the cracks and I was in very serious waffle love.  I may need a support group of some kind.  So, if you should happen to see this big yellow truck wafting waffle smells at you, I suggest you turn and run away.  I, personally, have plans to lock myself in my apartment every Sunday until they relocate.  Preferably to another city.  Help...

  2. Oh my. Just...oh my. That is one drawback to living in a very rural area; no food trucks. Someday, maybe I'll get to NYC and can eat my way through a few dozen of them :-D

  3. Oh I have resisted a stop so far whenever I see one of these trucks in the city. Now I think I might have to make a visit. The smell of hot waffles always does me in.
