I’m seeking out waffles in Seattle. I want to find a few examples of good, or correct, texture, in this case the toppings are not important. Here’s why: we were given an expensive waffle maker recently and after using it a few times I’m fairly convinced it doesn’t actually work that well. But, before I condemn it I’d like to have an ideal waffle texture to compare, a control group if you will.
Here is what I have so far:
– Arosa in First Hill, according to Yelp Hans came out of retirement to serve snack waffles once again.
– Rusty Pelican in Wallingford, a few steps away from my first house in Seattle.
– Vera’s in Ballard.
I’ve also dug up this list at Seattlest and this one from Yelp. I’ve never heard of Walter’s Waffles and wonder if it (still? actually? exists. And I’ll be sure to visit Sweet Iron Waffles this Autumn — “Introducing the Liége Waffle, a sumptuous combination of brioche style dough, pearl sugar and the perfect iron to seal the authenticity of this treat.” Yum.
But I’m hoping to get a first person recommendation for a solid example of a good waffle, got one?
