A happy accident. That was this.
Whilst shopping in Rice Village on a glorious sunny Saturday, I saw The Waffle Bus perched conveniently outside Urban Outfitters.
Since I’m completely awkward, and I think lingering is weirder than slinking, I slinked back and forth in front of the menu a couple times to see what they had to offer.
(Pure bliss is essentially what they had to offer.)
The masterminds behind the Waffle Bus offer both sweet and savory sandwiches including a smores sandwich and a buttermilk fried chicken sandwich.
Most of the time when I check out a food truck, I ask whoever’s taking my order to give me a recommendation. Then I go with that. It’s never turned out negatively.
This time around, I went with their most popular sandwich, the buttermilk fried chicken because: 1) just let me live, and 2) there is room for everything in a healthy diet.
My hangry photography is a lost cause, but you guys. This combo ruled.
I have always heard of combining chicken and waffles, but had never tried it myself. The sweet/savory action is a total winner.
What I liked about the Waffle Bus’s take was that their waffle was not overly sweet. The flavor was mellow, yet enough for it to hold its own against the salty, savory chicken.
The sauce I got was a spicy mayo which was great, but they had 3 other options that I am sure would have been just as awesome.
I may or may not be craving this right now. At 9 in the morning.
This was my very first Houston food truck experience* and there’s no chance that it will be my last. Seriously. I have a legitimate ongoing list of trucks I’m dying to check out. Bernie’s Burger Bus has gotten some rave reviews, and I’m all for fusion cuisine.
In other news, I’m a little less than 6 months away from graduating from my internship! Some days I’m completely dumbfounded and left wondering where the heck the last 6 months went.
I’ve been having a blast. Here’s to a solid next 6 months!
*Edited to add: Just kidding. Totally forgot I tried It’s a Wrap when I was shopping at the Discovery Green flea market, but it was a tad underwhelming. Certainly not bad, but nothing to write home about!
