Food Review – Belgian Waffle Factory, Bangalore

Food Review – Belgian Waffle Factory, Bangalore

The word “Waffle” makes most of us drool like anything, imagine a Chocolate Waffle, loaded with ice-cream, chocolates and choco-chips in your hands —- Hmmmm! Yum, no one waits, but it’s just a grub.

Know I hope you all understand what I am talking about? Obviously, it’s Waffle at Belgian Waffle Factory, Brigade Road, Bangalore. Also they have one more store at Vasanth Nagar, Bangalore.

When I got invite for the food review, felt the same experience I have been with Waffle’s all over Bangalore. The store was well designed and the quotes over the wall was attractive. More over the menu was big with too many varieties.

We got to try 3 waffles, and 3 waffles in the sense is too much. But here it was like two of us can have three waffles, and the most important cause for this is – most of their ingredients are homemade. Right from the batter till the cream cheese are homemade, and also, they added that it was vegetarian and strictly no egg at all. And so, no confusion of whether it’s veg or non-veg.

I have tried out

  • Chocolate Waffle – topped with Nutella, Cream cheese and Choco chips
  • Red Velvet Waffle – topped with Cream cheese and Choco chips
  • Bubble Chocolate Waffle – topped with Ice-cream, Nutella, Kit-Kat and Choco Chips.

Waffles were crispy outside, soft and spongy inside with the topping it was awesome. Topping can be customized according to the taste buds.

Rate was reasonable, a must to try for Bangaloreans. Give a try once, you can stop going there very often. I keep on drooling once I started writing about the experience and now longing for a waffle from Belgian Waffle Factory.
