If you hop a visit through the CBD's World Square, you will notice a sweet and warm scent of waffles flowing through the corridors. That's because there is a new store that opened, and it's not any store. It's a food truck! De Wafel is the name of the food truck that is getting CBD pedestrians to wonder and snap a photo. Here they serve simply different flavours of waffles. Their entire menu is shown in the photo below.
You can pick from a choice of 8 different Waffles. The first is a simple Liege Waffle which is plain Wafel for $5.50. Then you come across the waffle goodness - De Strudel, De Banana Split, De BBB (Bacon & Banana Breakfast), De Strawberry Supreme (which is what I had), De Cheesy Vegemite, De Nutella Dream and De Traditional. A variety of flavours that will suit a range of both sweet lovers, and the savoury-sweet lovers, which is becoming a trend these days.
Today, I could not resist but go for De Strawberry Supreme. I have a strong affection for strawberries, and you give me any dessert menu, the one that has strawberries is the one I will order almost all the time. Back to the waffles. The balance of the warm and crispy waffle, together with the refreshing taste of the whipped cream and strawberry, tied together with the drizzle of milk chocolate syrup - aw yum! I just could not stop but keep diving for the next bite. This waffle is a very simple waffle, but the mix of the texture and flavour it has, really changes your mind about the quality of food-truck food. It is definitely not messy to eat, and is something I was willing to go for a second one - but will save that for the next time!
As a food truck, you are served with your waffle in a recycled-paper plate with wooden cutlery. There is just something pretty cool about eating such a fancy, yet simple dish, served directly from a food truck right in the middle of the city. Not only can you enjoy your sweet treat right outside the food truck, but you office-hour people can easily take them away back to work. Serving time is also pretty short of around 3-5 minutes of wait. Prices are fairly reasonable (the deliciousness compensates for its smaller size) mostly around the $10 range. De Wafel is a must-try stall for anybody who is visiting, working, living by the city. It's a great afternoon tea dessert.
