When I was in Salt Lake City last week and it was 100 DEGREES out, I couldn’t really think of eating anything of substance. My mind kept coming back to ice cream.
I had been walking around downtown for a while, certain I’d find an ice cream or gelato shop but to no avail. Not knowing SLC very well at all, I tried something different. I took out my new trusty iPhone and gave it a shake using the UrbanSpoon application. I locked in on desserts and within seconds I discovered a spot I had to try.
Bruges Waffles and Frites specializes in only two things: waffles and frites (french fries). Owner Pierre VanDamme, direct from Brussels himself, runs a local wafflery at the farmer’s market. It was just a few months ago that he opened up this little place that could be missed if you weren’t looking for it. I bet, however, that once found, many have gotten addicted to this little shop.
Though a lot of sugar is never a good thing for me, I couldn’t resist eating this with a few extras – vanilla bean ice cream and chocolate topping which freezes on top of the ice cream into a nice hard shell.
The waffles are only a few dollars each and then each topping is additional and includes your choice of ice cream, whipped cream, strawberries or chocolate (or any combo!).
I was pretty sugared-out after this “dinner” but it was well worth it! Now I can’t wait to go back to try the frites…
