I had a bit of a crap day today, Jean. It all started with the parking machine at an Impark lot downtown not working and went downhill from there. Just when I was about to write the day off I smelled… waffles. I looked up and I had stumbled on Eva Sweet Waffles. I saw street food mentioned on Eat My Words a week or two ago, but since I don’t usually work downtown I never thought I would have the chance to try one. Even though I just finished lunch, I could not resist. I got a vanilla waffle (they also have cinnamon and maple) with whipped cream and caramel sauce. Yes, it was as sweet as it sounds. They are Liege waffles made with a pearl-like sugar. As I waited for my waffle, I had a great conversation with the vendor who showed me a photo of his waffle car in Belgium. If you watch Throwdown With Bobby Flay, he had a throwdown with a Liege waffle street vendor. Bobby lost. I think Bobby would lose to Eva Sweet.
