So you have just found yourself in the beautiful city of Madrid and after having discovered the city’s cultural and gastronomical paradises you feel like you need a break. Eating tapas all day was for sure one of the best decisions of your life; yes we do live once, so if you’re a tourist in the spanish capital you are allowed and definitely encouraged to act in such way (drinking and eating, that’s what Madrid is made for after all!)
So as I said, you’ve spent the day eating out but there’s still something missing! You feel like you need something sweet and refreshing at the same time… you feel like you need something unique, something that’s gonna make you come back to Madrid for it! So what about a fresh waffle?!?
I suppose that you’ve already tried the churros since it’s just A MUST while in Madrid, so I’ll continue now talking about the waffles which I had in mind from the moment I started writing this page..
The best place to have waffles while in Madrid is definitely the MadWaffle, located right at the heart of the city, next to Plaza Sol. A fun and different place that goes hand in hand with waffles filled with ice cream, and of course a variety of toppings. The options are practically endless and you can customize your waffle always according to your tastes!
The first thing to note is that the dough of the waffle has nothing to do with what we are used to; it is visually very different since it has the form of bubbles and it is much more spongy and, most importantly, light . This dough, which is the main component of the bubble waffles, can be ordered with vanilla, chocolate or mixed flavor. Then you add the ice cream you want and, to top off your creation, you can add any topping, such as cookie chips, marshmallows, syrup etc.
In the early 1950s, egg waffles firstly appeared in Hong Kong and have since become a popular street snack. People back then didn’t want to waste broken eggs which could not be sold to customers, so they created the egg shaped iron machine and blended egg with milk and flour to make this meaningful and tasty waffle.
To the greedy and daring of the latest trends I recommend very much visiting the MadWaffle! For only 5euros, you can enjoy a huge waffle, rolled in a cone and filled with ice-cream and toppings of your choice! What are you waiting for?
