Be careful when talking about Brussels waffles to a person from Liège or vice versa! In order to avoid any local constraints or sensibilities, here are some tips on how to distinguish the real stuff at first sight:
– Yes! This is a Liège waffle: quite small, rather round, spongy and with a crunchy sugar topping turning into caramel in certain places.
– This is the Brussels waffle: large, rectangular, pale and offered with various condiments, going from pure sugar to totally exaggerated extras: fresh cream in all its forms and tastes, from chocolate to whatever.
