Like most people, when I think of waffles, I think of breakfast. However, a new restaurant call Bruxie is trying to change all that with their gourmet waffle sandwiches.
By replacing the sandwich bread with a waffle, Bruxie has eliminated the traditional “breakfast only” mindset of the Belgian waffle. The Bruxie waffle are made thinner, and then folded to make it portable. The final result is one of the best tasting waffle/sandwich I’ve ever eaten.
Bruxie Waffles are paired with seasonal ingredients, offering both savory choices like Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Chili Honey & Cider Slaw (what I had), Prosciutto & Gruyere, and Hot Pastrami, as well as a variety of sweet options such as their seasonal Crème Brulee, Nutella & Banana and S’Mores. They also offer some of the best milk shakes in town.
Bruxie has six locations in Southern California. I highly recommend you try it if you’re ever in Southern California. We dined at the new Irvine store located in the Irvine Heritage Plaza. If you go, try to go during a weekday. The lineup on the weekend is pretty long.
