Top Waffles In South Florida

August 15, 2014 4:25 PM

Waffles, like pancakes, are a luxury nowadays compared to healthier breakfast menu meals and items, but they hold the title of being a guilty pleasure and an indulgence. Imagine the freshly baked items dripping with flavorful syrup and buttery tastes that won’t disappoint, equaling a satisfying meal that pleases the deepest senses in the brain. Throughout the world, waffles are a menu item presented either at breakfast, lunch, dessert or for a savory dinner. The waffles at these five restaurants are delicious and worth a trip with family, friends or solely oneself to enjoy.

From the creators of LoKal Burgers and the Miami Brew Bus comes KUSH. The nickname of Matt Kusher, KUSH specializes in providing the best in craft beer, but from the menu, one can order their beer with a chicken n’ waffles plate. Imagine Belgian waffles and chopped bacon along with powdered sugar, fried chicken and maple syrup (sweet, salty, sweet, salty, sweet) which takes a person’s taste buds into a state of delirium washed down with a beer selection unrivaled in the State of Florida.

Move from the chicken n’ waffles of KUSH to the Korean chicken n’ waffles menu item at OTC. Korean chicken is more tender than typical chicken in American-style fried chicken and it is fried twice, resulting in the chicken being more crispy and less greasy. The miso aioli adds a complementary kick with the spices used in the fried chicken. The carrot slaw balances out the tastes along with the waffle, but the maple syrup finishes off the customer into a guilty delight.

Miami is an urban city with rural roots and the Morgan’s restaurant brings customers back to them with the refurbished 1930s cottage which houses the establishment. People can escape in this restaurant and enjoy the wide selection of waffles presented on the menu. A regular selection includes options to add chicken, bananas and caramel, berries and cream or ice cream. Or go with the chicken and waffle sandwich with cheddar cheese or a chocolate-dipped waffle with whipped cream, strawberries and vanilla ice cream. No one should be surprised to see calorie-conscious customers huddled in the corner on a cheat day sampling all of these orders in one sitting.

The Foxy Brown offers two dessert waffle menu items and one for lunch. The s’more waffle with toasted marshmallows running over the edges and soft chocolate surrounding it pushes a person’s sugar fix to the highest levels. The ham n’ cheese waffle with a fried egg promises to make itself the breakfast choice of every customer. Foxy Brown’s brunch stands to be the best in Broward County.

Dixie Tracks Cafe
4820 N. Dixie Highway
Oakland Park, FL 33334
(754) 223-2456

Leaving Foxy Brown and its variety behind, Dixie Tracks has a section of its menu dedicated to waffles that will turn non-waffle lovers around and make the mouths water of eager customers. The highlight item is “Pigs & Waffle Jenga” — Belgian waffle, ham, Canadian bacon, Swiss cheese, country sausage gravy and bacon strips (syrup and butter accompany the dish). If that is too much meat, then order the DTC Chicken & Waffle, which has buttermilk-spiced, fried chicken bites, spiced Asian maple syrup, kimchi slaw with a crispy Belgian waffle. For dessert, the “Naughty waffle” with caramelized banana, fresh strawberries, nutella, caramel and fresh cream will do just the trick.
