The dish…on just one dish!
I’ve always enjoyed a good waffle, yet never have REALLY craved one. That all changed last Tuesday night at the first ever Trinity Fall Farmers Market, when I paid my first visit to one of Little Rock’s newest food trucks … Waffle Wagon.
On this particular evening, their Dunbar Garden pear and brown sugar waffle happened to catch my eye. But if you check Waffle Wagon’s ever-changing menu online each day, you’ll see that Matt and Melissa are cranking out a variety of waffles, usually 4-5 options a day/night.
They do things like chicken and waffles, a Freckle Face Farm andouille sausage stuffed waffle topped with okra, corn and pepper sauce, a white chocolate chip waffle, pigs in a blanket, and even just a plain, old waffle.
My pear and brown sugar waffle was cooked to a perfect golden brown. The soft interior, with its subtle sweetness from the brown sugar, was filled with warm, diced pieces of locally-grown pear. A generous pat of butter and a moderate amount of maple syrup were the icing on the cake (so to speak) and made for a beautiful presentation. And here’s an added bonus … the waffle was easy to eat. It wasn’t messy, or loaded with crazy toppings, or drowning in syrup.
I took my small pizza box and headed for the nearest curb. Five minutes later, I had polished off the entire thing—utterly satisfied and ready for another visit in the very near future.
Waffle Wagon is a wonderful edition to our Little Rock food truck scene, and major props to them for teaming up with farmers to incorporate local ingredients into many of their menu items when possible.
Follow them on FB to see where the wagon will be popping up next.
