I don’t know why or how I started ordering Belgian waffles along with my usual breakfast but it happened and I never ordered regular waffles again. To me, Belgian waffles taste better. But are they really Belgian?
Waffles are very popular in Belgium. However, Belgians don’t have waffles for breakfast. Their breakfast typically consists of bread, cheese, jam, and honey.
The more important question is, is the Belgian waffle dish that’s served in the United States the same as what we would get in Belgium? The answer is no. First of all, they don’t come served on a dish. Prepare to eat a waffle with your hands. Secondly, waffles loaded with syrup, whip cream, and strawberries is a faux-pas in Belgium.
On the flip side, they can be enjoyed at any time of the day since it’s a popular street food in Belgium. But remember to enjoy it without all the extra sugar.
