Try It: The VolksWaffle


Posted on December 16

Kira O'Donnell

There are many reasons to visit the friendly little midtown farmers’ market, which occurs year-round, every Saturday from 8am-1pm. But one of the tastiest reasons to throw on your sweatpants and make the jaunt to 20th and J streets is to order up one of Terry Jeske’s fabulous and very unique Liége “dough waffles.” Prepared by Jeske in his custom-fitted 1970 Volkswagen bus (hence the name VolksWaffle), the Belgian-style waffles are baked in very heavy waffle irons from dough that he imports from Belgium. Unlike the Belgian waffle with which you may be familiar, Jeske’s variety is very different: it is made from a richer, sweeter dough that contains Belgian pearl sugar, which caramelizes during the baking process, resulting in a “crispy and cakey” waffle with a soft, warm center. The waffles can be devoured plain, drizzled with Nutella, dusted with powdered sugar, coated with chocolate, or topped with juicy organic strawberries and a pouf of whipped cream. These crusty, sweet treats range in price from $5 to $6.75, and are especially good on chilly mornings (hint: if you’re with a partner, order two: you won’t want to share).
