The Insatiable Palate Review #4: Wafels and Dinges (New York, New York)

I’ve Made a Huge Mistake

If I learned anything from business school, NYU Stern reminded me that it’s ridiculous to pay six dollar for three bites of anything. But these wafels and dinges are so damn delicious.

The truck gypsies around New York City and caters to the “late-night munchies” crowd. The aroma of fresh-pressed wafels and Nutella is extremely hard to resist (baked or sober).

Portion/Price: The size of these wafels is unacceptable. The operation doesn’t have to pay rent, yet it somehow convinces you to pay 400% more than the amount it costs to iron a waffle. Let’s just try to reason that W&D is trying to stop me from getting type 2 diabetes at the age of 22.

Authenticity: Wafels and Dinges truly emulates the spirit of an authentic Belgian snack, but the actual size of the liège and Brussels waffles does not live up to the hype spreading around the online food communty. The liege starts at $5. 1st topping is free, 2nd topping is an additional $1. $2 means unlimited access to toppings, but you start to lose the essence of the wafel.

The Spreads: Speculoos (gingerbread-cinnamon), Dulce de Leche, Butter, Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, Maple Syrup, Belgian Chocolate Fudge, Nutella.The Toppings: Strawberries, Bananas, Walnuts, Dinges of the Week.

Recommendations: A spread of Nutella and whipped cream will drop yo’ panties (metaphorically, of course).

Personally, I just want a bed of Wafels and Dinges for my birthday cake. However, I, being a poor college student, cannot fulfill this desire. Thanks for teasing my mind at 2AM, jerks.
