Airing of Grievances: Wafels & Dinges’ Pulled Pork Waffle
A lot has gone on since we first posted the news that the Wafels & Dinges truck had added pulled pork as a waffle topping on their truck (which parks in Midtown during lunch a few days a week.) Serious Eats: New York weighed in first, and had good things say; and yesterday the truck sent out a press release saying the menu item was going to be added permanently to the menu. Blondie and Brownie like it too. But we did get one minor complaint from Lunch’er Jeff in the comments yesterday:
Ok, call us pioneers, a co-worker and I went for this today.. first ones there. Smart move cause even if the line was short, they make the waffles fresh, so a little bit of a wait for each order. Listen, I can go on and on with how fantastic this tasted.. the combination works!! It even folds into a taste-sensational sandwich as they instructed. Again, the BBQ sauce, the cool creamy slaw (still generic grade though), the soft meat, and the warm crusty waffle.. yum!! BUT I’m pissed!!
We seriously got about half the portion that was shown in the pic above!! I mean literally half as much, even got only 1 pickle slice instead of the pictured 2 (damn that kool-aid pickle was kickin’!). What gives?? Did the truck go cheap or are these foodporn photos really like real porn.. meaning: fake! (that was a confusing sentence, sorry). What i’m saying is that make sure the pics show exactly as is. The disappointment after taking off the foil, revealing a limp portion size, really threw me off. And if not the photo, let me know, cause then I have a few Belgium words of my own to share with the truck operators!! That said, give this a try.. so damn tasty!
Interesting. Thanks for the warning Jeff. At least it tasted good… if you want to try this for yourself, the Wafels & Dinges Truck will be on 45th btw. 6+7th today. Tell them your top 3 favorite movies, and get a free topping (I’m guessing the pulled pork doesn’t count.)
