"The Bold Fold"

Posted on
I learned today that you don’t have to fly to Brussels to find an amazing waffle. All you have to do is get on the 55, exit Chapman, turn right at the Orange Circle, and not park in a permit area. Enter: Bruxie. A friend recently changed jobs and works in the area, and turned our other friend onto Bruxie this weekend. She dragged me back there today.
Buttermilk Fried Chicken Waffle
The 15-minute drive was a full blown commercial about what I was in for. Savory and sweet waffle combinations, homemade ‘pure cane’ sugar sodas, and Peet’s iced tea. Sold. Their menu is small, but their flavor big, and I’m disappointed that I wasn’t the Magellan of this roadside waffle stand. There’s no inside (or even a bathroom that I could find to wash the maple syrup from my hands), but the al fresco diner-style tables were the perfect pair to this hand food. 
For me, I went for the buttermilk fried chicken and waffle. Courtney had the bacon, egg and cheddar. And she decided we needed dessert after all that, so we shared the lemon cream and berries waffle. Oh, and the only side they have is, what else? Waffle fries. We had those too. 
Bruxie is caddy-corner to Chapman University, so don’t be surprised if it’s packed on the weekends or at random times throughout the day. Go stand in line though. You won’t be sorry. I’ll probably be there too because I now want the prosciutto and gruyere, sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese, and if I can find the room, the s’mores waffle for dessert.
