When recounting the machinations that transpired the evening before, especially if it's with a meLANcholy tone, it's imperative that you develop the perfect Shaky Alibi, in case you're ever called to the stand.
Yay for inside jokes!
That said, the Shaky Alibi, is more than just a good talk over a cup of coffee kind of locale. It is home to the Liege Belgium waffle. Which has already become, in just one visit, my new favorite waffle preparation. I would describe the process, but their website does it much better...
I went with the savory, black forest ham & gouda. To die for. My partner in crime went with the sweet, strawberries and a drizzle of chocolate."A cook of the Prince-Bishop of Liege Belgium invented the Liege waffle in the eighteenth century. The traditional recipe is a closely guarded secret and is smaller, sweeter and denser than the Brussels waffle. The waffle is made from a yeast dough rather than a batter and is coated chunks of Belgian pearl sugar that melt and caramelize creating a slightly crispy shell.
While I do love the savory/sweet combo, I think next time I might need to mix it up with a little Speculoos, this amazing Belgian spread that's reminiscent of crumbled graham crackers in a yummy whipped paste. Wonder how to mix that into a savory dish!
