I enjoy sweet waffles. I enjoy chicken regularly. The idea of savory waffle doesn’t appeal to me, and I feel the same way about chicken & waffles as I do about chicken on pizza – it’s weird and not for me. That said, I am always open to trying new things and this venue is definitely one of a kind in Vancouver.
So in this place they make sandwiches where the bread is a waffle. They call them “sandos.” Weird, right? I have been in this establishment three times as of this writing and tried something new each time. I’ve had the bananarama, the BLT and most recently the hoisin. Of the three I actually liked the hoisin best – it was like a Vietnamese sub with a waffle. I think they forgot to put the pork sausage on my sando but I actually didn’t care – it was quite good the way it came.
They also have milkshakes and yogurt drinks, with the option of adding booze! Recently (to my knowledge) they added the option of adding pearls and coconut jelly to the drinks. As a bubble tea connoisseur I was very excited about this. I kind of love this place and will be coming back to try more stuff off the menu.
Service was friendly enough and fairly prompt.
Biggest Rave: The chocolate wasabi milkshake is amazing. Make it a bubble tea and you’ve stolen my heart forever!
Biggest Rant: Sign says “NO PUBLIC WASHROOM” but there is a washroom, and I used it. It was awkward to get into and when I turned on the light it strobed so intensely I actually had to close my eyes while I peed. It was like a very tiny rave without the other good stuff.
