Wafels & Dinges Now Delivers via Seamless

Wafels & Dinges has started to offer delivery through Seamless. The waffles will be coming from either their Bryant Park or Herald Sqaure kiosks, so it shouldn’t take too long to get some warm waffles on your desk if you work on the west side. Check Seamless for their menu and delivery range. Has anybody tried the delivery yet? Are the waffles as good as at the actual locations?

Wafels & Dinges Now Permanently Available in Herald Square: The permanent kiosk of Wafels & Dinges we told you about last month opened this past Saturday and they are now serving all the usual sweet and savory dinges, including their play on chicken and waffles and their spekuloos milkshake (which has only been available in their East Village stroefront until now). The stand will be open seven days a week from 7am-10pm. And they'll soon be joined by Nuchas.

Wafels & Dinges Chicken and Waffles Is Not What You’d Expect

IMG_9917

Our prayers have been answered. Sort of. When news first broke last week that Wafels & Dinges would finally be offering chicken and waffles, I think a lot of people assumed that it was only at their brick and mortar.  I also assumed it would be a play on fried chicken and waffles, that classic non-Belgian waffle dish. The good news is they’re offering the dish everywhere but the carts. But the dish itself is nothing like you’d expect.

Wafels & Dinges is Coming to Herald Square Park!

If you’re in Midtown South and haven’t yet had a chance to hit up the always amazing Wafels & Dinges (I don’t care how much you love Nutella, get the damn spekuloos spread your first time out, and you’re welcome in advance) you’re gonna have a chance real soon to pin ‘em down in Herald Square at their second brick & mortar location. The former ‘Wichcraft kiosk has had the signage taken down, and the two dudes working in it confirmed that W&D’s going to be taking over the space in a few weeks. Keep your eyes out on the main page and Twitter feed – no better way to ring in autumn than awesome wafels!

Wafels & Dinges Storefront Opens Today in the LES

After months of inspections and permit obtaining, the eagerly awaited Wafels & Dinges storefront (on 2nd Street and Avenue B in the Lower East Side) finally opened their doors this morning at 7am. Obviously this news doesn’t help us Midtown Lunchers too much but if you are as big a fan as we are of W&D and you get a chance to visit after work the full sweet and savory menu (including the savory Bastogne waffle) will be available. I recommend the speculoos shake, which we can only hope will find its way onto the trucks soon. Congrats to Thomas and the gang!

Wafels & Dinges Rolls Out the Bastogne Potato Waffle

With their impending storefront opening some time in the near future, the Wafels & Dinges empire will expand greatly. And they’re not just getting more space. They’re also creating new waffle concoctions for those lucky enough (or young enough) to hang out on Avenue B. Until then, they’re slowly testing out some of the new products on the truck. That means, we get to be their guinea pigs. Lucky us!

Get a Sneak Preview of Wafels & Dinges’ Cafe, Set to Open in the Spring

You may have heard rumors floating around that Wafels & Dinges will be opening up a brick and mortar café sometime in the near future. Well, we spoke to waffle master himself Thomas DeGeest, who confirms that the store will be downtown and is targeted to open in the spring of this year. He’s given us some more details, including that the 30-something seat shop will be designed by Belgian architect D+DSAO and will feature lots of neon! On the food side of things, the usual sweet and savory waffles will be on offer in addition to some new menu items, like grab ‘n’ go options, coffee from Brooklyn Roasting Company, and ice cream and shakes (like speculoos and Belgian chocolate).

If you just can’t wait until the spring, the truck will be testing out one of their new menu items today. The “Das Guten Wafel” is similar to the chewy and sweet liege waffle, but cooked with farmer’s ham and Raclette cheese inside and topped with scallions. They’ll only be available today at the Kastaar truck on 32nd and Park from 1-3pm, or while supplies last. Remember, this is a menu item that will only be available in the café, so today could potentially be your only chance to try this savory waffle in Midtown.

National Waffle Day Festivities Will Occur in Midtown on Friday

For their 5th annual celebration, Wafels & Dinges will be parked on 49th and 3rd on Friday to celebrate National Waffle Day. Our favorite big yellow truck will host a series of events that will include wafel-decorating, blindfolded wafel-eating, and a bicycle track stand. The Master himself Thomas DeGeest will preside over the afternoon (12-1pm) and crown the truck’s biggest fans, Miss and Mister Wafel (who will both earn unlimited waffles for a year).

Most importantly for us freeloaders, they’re offering free wafels in exchange for original drawings depicting bicycle-powered waffle carts. And they’ll announce the winner of their Photo Contest, who will receive an all-expense paid trip to Belgium, courtesy of Brussels Airlines, and can be entered by clicking here.

Wafels & Dinges Will Get Us To Eat Our Veggies

I’ve noticed on Twitter for the last few weeks that Wafels & Dinges has been pushing this new Sprussels from Brussels waffle. I assumed it was the latest of their seasonal dessert specials with a creative name. I didn’t know it was actually a waffle made with brussels sprouts. And I don’t mean topped with brussels sprouts, but rather the sprouts are shredded and mixed into the dough before they’re cooked. What the – ?
