What’s not to love about a waffle? The answer is nothing. NOTHING. They’re the perfect balance between crispy and soft, sweet and savoury, and come with a versatility that knows no bounds. You can gobble ‘em up with lashings of syrup, get on the fried chicken buzz or just eat them on their lonesome—they’re really a food of the people.
So, in honour of these tasty creations, one Auckland restaurant has declared August ‘Waffle Appreciation Month’—a month-long celebration of waffles.
Every Wednesday in August, Orleans is coming out with a new waffle special for you to get amongst. The special will run between the tight timeframe of 12pm—4pm so jot that in your diary STAT.
Week one is all about the Waffle Burger with crispy fried chicken, Orleans slaw, and chipotle maple glaze. Once week two rolls around you’ll find yourself getting amongst a dessert waffle. Week three and five are all about the famous Orleans’ chicken and waffle dish while week four will grant you the glorious gift of waffles AND a jelly tip shake ($12).
And the best bit? They’re just 10 bux each! Now go and give waffles the appreciation they deserve. You know you want to…
