I used Yelp for the majority of my Seattle eats for this trip, but I also turned to other bloggers. Namely, The Gastronomer, is a bit of a world traveler and she does a great job documenting all her eats throughout her travels. Sweet Iron Waffles happened to be the subject of one of her posts. I think she is a Liège waffle fan. Liège waffle you ask? A Liège waffle is a “richer, denser, sweeter, and chewier waffle…it features chunks of pearl sugar, which caramelizes on the outside of the waffle when baked.”
They had many different flavors, but I decided to go with the classic to really get a good taste of a pure Liège waffle. I will have to say that I was somewhat disappointed. I think my expectations were just too high because, really, the waffle was served hot off the griddle, soft with a delicate chew and just a hint of sweet. I could see why people love the waffles but I needed more. I think I should have gotten a waffle with toppings. Also there was some distracting flavor on the waffle, I think from the grease they use on the griddle. I tasted/smelled something glue like?
If you love a Liège waffle then this seems the place to have them in Seattle. I think I’ll keep trying the popular waffle places. I’m sure I’m bound to find one I like. How can I resist sweet fluffy carbs??
