Waffles are amazing. Simple yet versatile, one can have it plain or spice it up with various ingredients like cinnamon, honey, chocolate sauce… the list is endless!
I recently got my waffle fix at Madame Waffle in IOI City Mall, Putrajaya. Priding itself in serving ‘artisan Belgian waffles, specialty coffees and teas’, the Japanese-inspired local brand recently celebrated their first anniversary with a promotion. Original and Matcha flavoured waffles sold for only RM1 each! Needless to say, the kitchen had their hands full catering to the long lines of customers…
Unlike conventional square-shaped waffles, the ones at Madame Waffle are round; like a fat, criss-crossed pancake. There are plain ones and flavoured ones, such as Green Tea, Cinnamon, Chocolate, etc. There are also the premium platters which come with stuff like ice-cream, sides, etc.
Only RM1 ! The usual price for these are between RM6-8. I tried the Matcha flavour, which had a sweet but slightly bitter aftertaste from the matcha powder (which was quite pleasant, actually). The texture of the waffle was nothing like normal waffles at all. It was like a cross between very chewy bread and a glutinous rice bun, or sweet potato cake.
The plain one was sweet and slightly doughy.
I really liked Madame Waffle’s take on the well-loved dessert. Will be coming back to try more ! 🙂
