Waffle King

Following a tipoff from Kelly in an earlier posting, Merkel ventured to 85 Sturt Road, Dover Gardens to the newly established Waffle King. This is a small shop selling Belgian waffles and crepes. What attracted Merkel to this place was the chocolate fountain of Belgian chocolate. Also on the menu are Belgian chocolate fondues. There is no doubting the authenticity of the cuisine as patrons are greeted by the Belgian chef.

The hot chocolate was served in a frosted glass with a wire handle. Decorative patterns where the chocolate was drizzled into the glass could be seen through the glass walls. The drink was topped with a white froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. The hot chocolate had to be stirred thoroughly to mix the chocolate with the milk which necessarily destroys the chocolate patterns. Even then, the chocolate flavour could have been stronger, although the Belgian flavour was unmistakable. Merkel will ask for a stronger mix next time. The cost was $4.90.
