Another Luxe Lonchera Hits The Streets: Waff-N-Roll
Tandoori chicken & herbed yogurt
Let's start with the obvious: It's Bruxie on wheels. The 'Roll' in Waff-N-Roll is two-fold-- a nod to their wheels and family-friendly rocker theme. Our handy-dandy menu acquired boasts one tagline of "One bite for man, one giant leap for tastebuds." Have we tried it? No. It's that new.
Owner Brian Fast has an arsenal of both savory and sweet goodness for those eager to try his wares. One thing that sets them apart from the rest: a waffle with a sturdy base. Think of those commercials where the boy is trying to fill a hard taco shell with no success. He wonders aloud for a flat base so the shell can stand alone. Now imagine it in waffle form. Utilizing only butter (no oil) also contributes to their hefty waffle.
Hey, that's more space for braised short rib with citrus horseradish cream sauce. Or sauteed mushroom, arugula and goat cheese with a balsamic reduction and sun-dried tomatoes. And even more room for a dulce de leche topped with sweet cream and spicy pecans. Apologizes while we wipe the drool off our screen.
If Brian's name seems familiar to you, it's because he owns Arthur's Coffee Shop in La Habra (no relation to the Arthur's in Orange). With a website domain of www.bestbreakfastoc.com, they're pretty confident about the morning meal. Serving real food to real people, Arthur's is also known for some offbeat ambiance.
The luxe lonchera debuted earlier this month at a private event, but can be ogled up close this Thursday at the La Habra Citrus Fair from 5:30-9:30 p.m. Stalk them by checking out their website, www.waffnroll.com. From there, you'll find links to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. You can start making comparisons. . . . now!
