Duke of Waffles is near the entrance to Etihad Stadium and those looking for healthy meal options before a football game will not be disappointed. As we walked towards this new establishment, the owner, Cheung, came outside to greet us with generous samples of an age old recipe of home cooked vegetable soup. Waffles is their specialty so the soup's fame is courtesy of Pryian who has developed this recipe for over 20 years.
What we know as Belgium waffles is actually an American term based on a Brussels style yeast recipe rather than baking powder. Sweet lovers will enjoy the Liege waffles which are similar, but oh so cute and round with a caramelised sugar coated crunchy crust.
Cheung had dreams of becoming a king from a young age so King Cheung, as he is now known, has graced Melbourne with his amazing Belgium waffle recipe. His personal story is an inspiration and I thank him for sharing this with all who enjoyed the hospitality on our visit.
Surprisingly, not having a sweet tooth himself, Cheung devised a way to eat waffles that will satisfy the savoury craver - and the waffle sandwich was born. This creation is two delicate waffles with a fresh selection of your choice of meats, vegetables or seafood.
It was Cheung's uncle in Belgium who said 'if no one provides what you want in life, why don't you create your own?' With this family support of a Belgium chef, and entrepreneurial talent, a true European waffle recipe is offered to the Melbourne connoisseurs of all new gastronomic delights. The prices of both the waffles and the drinks were within my budget which I can assure you is very low.
As a fan of the 'all day breakfast' this will be a great addition to an emerging social precinct. Duke of Waffles is big enough to serve your pre-match footy cheer squad but cosy enough to feel at home and have your individual requests catered to.
