The Gaufre Gourmet

Awesomeness might be an understatement of what it's been like since The Gaufre Gourmet moved to the downtown 9th and Alder location. Not only do I get to walk by this food cart on my daily commute, but I can eat waffles for lunch, make that liége style waffles.  

My latest venture took part in the ABC Waffle ($6.75): arugula, bacon, and camembert with fig sauce. The broiche-esque waffle was strong enough to hold up the toppings while adding a touch of sweetness. The bacon, well, I am not a crazy bacon eater, but this was one of the better bacons I've had in some time. Perfectly thick, with a nice crisp and plenty of melt in your mouth goodness. Add creamy camembert and tangy fig sauce and it's a discothèque in your mouth. 

On this occasion, I also ordered an almond milk mocha. A superb mocha: rich, tasting like dark chocolate and espresso and not sugar. I would go out of my way to get coffee here again.

Crazy-delicious weekly flavors are abound, just creep them one way or another to find out.

You guys in Portland are so fortunate to have access to great food trucks/food shacks! Those waffles looks divine. I should ask for a waffle maker for Xmas so I could make my own.

Banana Wonder said...

Laura - Yay I'm excited you're coming to Portland :-) (soon, I hope).

Lenia - Haha, I know, right?

Helen - That's a great idea. I need to ask Santa for a waffle maker as well.
