Golden Waffle and its Waffle Mobile, have found a place in my heart, serving up waffles made of pearl sugar. A sugar that dissolves differently than the sugars we use in our homes, pearl sugar caramelizes inside of the dough when baked to create crunchy pockets of intense sweetness. Saying that, I should not have gotten the maple syrup on my waffle, instead opting for strawberries or just confectioner's sugar.
Once I saw down with said waffle, I forgot I was even sitting on a plastic chair, starring at damp asphalt, on an algid winter's day. I just kept thinking about Thierry's craft, his efforts, his smiling face although no one was eating outdoors on this day, and my brief time spent in Brussels. When you're roaming the city, don't forget to look for the golden truck, with the waffle pattern, and the maroon top that sort of looks like it once was a short yellow school bus. Or, it's counterpart fire engine red trailer.
