Belgian Waffles& Indonesian Food

We went to Brussel last weekend. On the way to Manekin Piss, something made me drooling.....hmmm.. yummy Brussel Waffles!
I posted some photos in my Multiply.

In Belgium there are two types of waffles (or gauffres as we like to call them): the Brussels and the Liege waffle. The Brussels is rectangular in shape with a golden-brown exterior, deep divots and is usually eaten with a knife and fork. Brussels waffles are served with a variety of toppings such as powdered sugar, whipped cream, ice cream, strawberries and chocolate. The Liege waffle is golden-yellow, more dense in texture and has a burned sugar coating on the outside giving it a lightly sweet flavor. This hand-held waffle is sold by street vendors all over Belgium.(source:

daphne said...

i want BOTH types of waffles! =) so yummy looking!

Happy cook said...

I make both the waffels, if you check my old post you will find the step by step recipe for oneof them. The one we get in streets i don't make that often, i've only made that twice and that was ages ago.
Don't you just love the smell from the waffers in the street when you pass them.
When u were in Brussels did you grab a pack of Friets, that is also ver addictive smell :-)
And again thankyou for giving me the award

Retno Prihadana said...

daphne: Yes, Both look so nice and want to pick them all.
happy cook: Ahh...I didn´t have a chance to taste Friets.Maybe, next time. Thank you for sharing the recipe, I´ll try it.
