Waffling

Fried Egg and House Sausage Waffle Sandwich

Sometime in January of this year we decided to dust off the old waffle iron and pay tribute to a good friend and waffle aficionado. I know we've said it many times overs but David Stokamer, Mr. Flavourspot himself, is the reason we were able to land our location on N. Lombard St. in the first place. For that we feel truly indebted and grateful.

Since our incarnation, David's regular order at our spot has been a paperboy sandwich. But this ain't no off-the-menu, kind of paperboy. Oh, no. David's personal breakfast of champions is a "paperboy with American cheese, bacon, salt-pepper, ketchup." And so it happened that on one recent fateful Tuesday morning I decided to pay homage to the Waffle Man himself, by inventing a waffle sandwich based on David's take on our paperboy egg sandwich. I could barely contain my excitement that morning when I text David with the news. I was ready to offer to box him one up and run it out to him at the cart, assuming he was busy running "Son of Flavourspot," his outlet's second location located on the corner of N. Mississippi Ave, and Fremont.
The Waffle Man

In my excitement and haste I forgot that David's Januaries are typically a month devoted to veganism. Needless to say, he had to decline my offer to try the latest creation. By the way, we think this, coupled with the fact that the fryer down at "Son of Flavorspot" is vegan Mon-Fri. speaks volumes to Flavorspot's mass appeal and diverse loyalists. It was during one of these past Januaries when David dedicated himself to mastering his vegan waffle recipe. We applaud that kind of dedication. We are also desperate to try one of his latest creations. Uh, did someone say chicken fried steak and gravy? Um, yes. Yes they did. And wait till you try the homemade (family recipe) apple cobbler. Get down there, what are you waiting for? Enough said.

So it is with much regard and and a great deal of conscious deliberation that we have continued on this quest, spending every week since that day exploring the vast possibilities for the waffle's more savory, egg sandwich-esque sensibilities in our own cafe. I commend those of you who have (stepped off the deep end with us) obliged our curiosities. If you're hoping to partake in one of these, all you need to do is keep an eye on our specials board. Our waffle concoctions vary weekly.

(huh- guess that should make it the "Four B.")

Cheers to waffles and to waffle-lovers everywhere. And thanks again to David. For many things.

Check out the Spilled Milk Podcast's very first edition for their take on fried eggs. For whatever reason, they gave a thumbs down to eggs on anything sweet, like pancakes or waffles. To which I say, fine, the more left over for us!

cheers
