Waffles de Liege
What we know today as the thick, round, and buttery Belgian waffle is an impostor. More accurately, its real name is the Brussels waffle. Even though these days, practically everyone in the States recognizes it as generically Belgian, it's not the only waffle the country is known for; in the city of Liege, another recipe is the top waffle all together.
The traditional Liege waffle is much sweeter than its Brussels counterpart, thanks to the signature Belgian pearl sugar dotting its dough. These large sugar crystals caramelize when the dough hits the waffle iron, producing a treat that's practically a dessert in and of itself, but that doesn't stop the crew at Waffles de Liege from topping it with fresh fruit, Speculoos, Nutella, or even a heaping scoop of Fosselman's ice cream.
Between its roaming food truck and its brick-and-mortar location in Old Pasadena, Waffles de Liege aims to bring this sweeter, heartier waffle to Angelenos all over. Since the dough—not a batter—plays such an important part in creating the signature Liege waffle flavor, everything is made fresh from all-natural ingredients and cooked to order.
Just as importantly, some would argue, Waffles de Liege prides themselves on providing customers with quality coffee. Nothing pairs with Liege waffles quite like a cup of pour-over coffee prepared by baristas using only the finest beans from Heart Coffee Roasters.
