You have had Nutella waffles, breakfast waffles, waffles with banana and strawberries, waffles with cream and every possible kind of sweet waffle there is!
But now in Dubai, you also have a joint selling Savoury Waffles and oh my they do justice to it! Located in the central Bur Juaman Centre is Waffle Factory, all the way from Belgium, it was established there in the end of 1990s.
Waffle Factory began essentially with Liège waffles, but a few years later other dough recipes were created for both savoury waffles for main meals and sweet ones for increasingly tasty desserts. Their USP is that the dough for the waffles is made fresh every morning and that you can surely feel in the quality of their product.
I arranged for a bloggers meet there and we were welcomed by the super sweet owner, Neha, who told us a bit about the franchise. We started off with some coffee and milkshakes and i enjoyed the simple cappucino that i asked for. I liked how inspite of being a small outlet, the cup was still branded.
We then went through the menu which had 4 categories of waffles, the LunchWAF, Liege Waffle, Waffine and Brussels Waffle.
The LunchWAF serves various savoury waffles and I loved the fact that they had a vegetarian option. I opted for the 3 cheese waffle which had Gouda, Emmental and Goat Cheese. This was thoroughly enjoyed however was heavy. I didn’t try the vegetarian waffle as i was too full after this. These are basically like a stuffed pizza as they are mainly made from pizza dough and then just shaped as a waffle. Hence if someone is expecting the dough to be sweet, it’s not.
Then we moved on to the 3 kinds of dessert waffles. First we tried the Liege waffle which was topped with belgium dark chocolate which is a MUST for dark chocolate lovers, then the Lotus stuffed waffine which was a bit sweet for me as i find Lotus spread to be generally sweet and the last but my favourite, the Nutella Brussels waffle with strawberries *heart eyes*. This was crisp and light and made to perfection. Also not very sweet.
And there is good news for all lovers of Movenpick Icecream. Waffle Factory serves the same and we ended our delicious meal with 3 flavours. Caramel, Raspberry Sorbet and Chocolate. I loved the caramel one and am so glad that Movenpick Icecreams are available within an arms reach.
Highly recommend this place! Perfect for a quick snack, lunch or some major dessert cravings!
