While our food scene has been put through the wringer, sometimes there’s some good news to report. Today is one of those days. There’s a new food truck called Wade Waffle Co that is headed to Wichita….literally.
Obviously from the name, they are a mobile food vendor that specializes in sweet and savory liege waffles.
What’s a liege waffle you ask? From looking at their website they had this to say:
The waffles most Americans are accustomed to are made from a sweet batter, baked on a waffle iron, and then smothered in butter and syrup. Don’t get us wrong, we love those waffles, but we think you’ll be blown away by the Liege waffle, the distant cousin to the kind we all grew up on.
Liege waffles originated in Liege, Belgium and take a little more time and love to create. Instead of whipping up a batter, we first make a sweet, yeast dough that is allowed to rise and develop luscious, pillowy air pockets. We then fold in little nuggets of imported Belgian pearl sugar, and let them rise once again. When these puffy little mounds of dough hit our specially designed Liege waffle iron, they expand and the pearl sugar caramelizes throughout the waffle. With all this gooey goodness, you won’t even miss the syrup!
They have been operating out of Lawrence, KS and plan to move to Wichita this month.
Once they make it to town, they’ll be ready and excited to offer sweet and savory waffle creations from their food trailer. You can follow them on Instagram (@wadewaffleco) on their Facebook page for updates.
