Breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day. I have to start my day with some good breakfast in order to function normally. Most people need a cup of coffee to get them going.. I need food. I can honestly eat breakfast food for lunch (hello brunch) and dinner. Trust me if you’ve never had breakfast for dinner, you haven’t begun to live.
One of my favorite breakfast food items is a waffle. I don’t care how it’s prepared, you can never go wrong with a waffle. Here’s a few of the waffles specialities that I’ve come across.
Waffles de liege is a food truck that takes waffles to a gourmet level. I used to stalk this truck religiously. Below is a Ice Crean Waffle special and I added pecans and strawberries.
Another food truck turned restaurant is Grill Em All. Grill Em All is known for their burgers such as the Behemoth, which is good but my favorite burger is the Samoa Joe. Recently, I was near Alhambra and decided to visit their storefront for lunch. Instead of ordering the same thing I always get, I decided to try something new and ordered the Jump in the Fryer Burger which uses waffles as a bun.
They no longer have their food truck so check them out if your ever in Alhambra at 19 E. Main Street
If your ever near Hollywood and Vine stop over at Wood and Vine and treat yourself to this delicious sage, butternut squash chicken and waffle entree. Wood and Vine takes pride in taking comfort food up a notch and they do not fail.
Wood and Vine- 6280 Hollywood Blvd Hollywood, CA. 90023
Going over to Catalina Island soon? Then stop by the Pancake Cottage and enjoy this nice waffle breakfast.
The Combo (yes this is the name of this platter)
Another restaurant that specializes in waffles that I’ve come to love is Bruxies. I have the pleasure of working near two locations and having the willpower to avoid them is always a struggle.
Country Sausage, Egg and Cheddar from the Irvine location. Slather this in syrup and it’s heaven. (not pictured. I also had the Cheesy Bruxie at this location and it was delicious)
Am I making you hungry for waffles yet? Okay I’ll stop….. After this last post :-). So all these special waffles but sometimes you just want the basic.
Roscoes Chicken and Waffles is known for its.. Well chicken and waffles. I’ve also had other items there which are also good but I never stray to far from my usual. I don’t even have to look at the menu when I make a visit there. May I please order a #9 formerly known as the Country Boy special and renamed the Obama special. The Obama Special is 3 fried wings and a waffle.
It was renamed after President Obama made a stop at one of the Roscoes locations in LA and ordered the #9 stating that was his favorite combo to get when he’s there. This combo is just good. Simple, nothing fancy and gets the job done.
So this is my ode to Waffles. They bring me so much joy. Luckily I’m broke or I would definitely head to the Roscoes in Anahim for a #9 or around the corner to the Irvine Bruxie right now.
