Around the World with Food (I)

13 Apr

(Piggletino got upset with his scout for long days of working and a lack of travel plans. He decided to come up with his own ‘Around the World with Food’ series of posts.)

Piggletino got tired of waiting for his scout, and decided to share some of his favourite foods from various trips with everyone 🙂

Did you know that there were so many different types of ‘waffles’? Piggletino heard from the waffles shop that in there are various ways of making waffles that result in the Flemish waffles, American waffle, and even the Belgian waffles. And the best thing that Piggletino learnt was that there are no Belgian waffles in Belgium! Gasp! Isn’t that a surprise?

This is the Brussels Waffles – light, crispy on the outside ( and with deep squares that are nicely filled with chocolate sauce and strawberries.


Brussels Waffles are unique from others due to its sharp rectangular sides. Close by but different, the Liege waffles are shaped like a rounded rectangle and are seldom matched with toppings due to its vanilla or cinnamon flavours. Also unlike American waffles, the Brussels Waffles doesn’t go so well as a breakfast set.

Piggletino shall remember these interesting facts and go around the world in search of the various types of waffles!
