Belgium is another popular booth, with it’s sweet and savory waffles, it’s hard to stop from trying at least one! The Belgian Waffle with Berry Compote and Whipped Cream is a sweet, delectable, treat, as is the Belgian Waffle with Warm Chocolate Ganache and Whipped Cream. If you’re lucky, a cast member may be willing to top your berry waffle with some chocolate too. Although the flavors are wonderful on their own, adding chocolate is a sure way to up the ante.
Pictured above is last year’s savory waffle. This year’s rendition, the Potato and Leek Waffle with Beer-Braised Beef and Smoked Gouda Cream, should look similar, but the addition of smoked gouda, probably in the place of the melted butter, is sure to add a whole new layer of flavor I’m looking forward to trying. The waffles are all made fresh, and their lighty, airy texture is paired perfectly with their toppings. If you’re fortunate enough to take multiple trip to the festival, I’d suggest splitting the waffles into different trips. They’re pretty filling.
For drinks, you can find a good selection here as well. This year’s beers are:
Palm Speciale Belge Ale
Stella Artois Cidre
These can either be purchased separately or as a flight, where you’ll get a small pour of each beer.
Also a big hit for drinks at the festival is the Chilled Coffee featuring Godiva Chocolate Liqueur. The drink is very yummy, buy comes in a very, very small glass. The price is a little steep, (in 2014 it was $7.50) so plan ahead if you want to sample this one.
