“Can we waffle it?” This term may not be familiar several decades ago, but as of late, the trend of placing ordinary ingredients into a waffle making machine has risen in popularity. While the dishes below might not be exact replicas of the waffle machine experiment, they definitely go outside the box in terms of traditional ways of sampling the waffle.

Savoury dishes like fried chicken and waffles as well as duck confit waffles are modern and imaginative creations, and these 6 unconventional waffle dishes are certainly worth making the trip for.

1. Fried Chicken & Waffles

Fried chicken and waffles is a brilliant combination and it becomes a reality with Bisque Café. Crisp succulent proteins are matched with their fluffy other half, which are the waffles. They are later topped off with some syrup. This makes the perfect combination of sweet and savoury and it is a pretty hearty meal indeed!

2. Waffle Burger

Belgian waffles are used as burger buns at Walffeine in order to keep the ingredients such as a fried egg, burger patty and vegetables in place. But don’t be fooled though, the waffles are not just side dishes per se, for they are also very much the star of the show. Have some chips with the dish, and you’ve got yourself a full meal.

Nobody can pass up a good steak. What more a rich, cheesy one? Two Sons Bistro’s spin on the well-loved protein is to combine it with a good ol’ waffle and a side of crinkle cut fries. Imagine tucking into a moist piece of steak and forkfuls of waffle at the same time. Pure heaven.

If you’re not up for protein-rich waffles, why not try this vegetarian option with okras instead?

This version of the waffle is paired with roast vegetables for a healthy twist.
