Taste of Belgium waffles are like none other in town. Dense, crispy, sweet, and delicious. Enjoyable on their own but even better as the foundation for a scrumptious brunch. The waffle station is one of our favorite stops at the Cincinnati Zoo’s annual fall Zoo Brew event. Sam Adams beer and Belgium waffles, what more can you ask for!
Taste of Belgium has been a resident of Findlay market for some time and has recently started expanding their footprint in Cincy. In October of 2011 they opened their Bistro location at the corner of Vine and 12th st. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner and of course their waffles are on the menu all day long. A full service bar is open late into the night with a variety of beer, wine, spirits and hot espresso.
To turn up the heat on this bitter cold Sunday morning we ordered up a Waffle’n Chicken which comes with the famous Belgium waffle topped with Ohio maple syrup and a huge piece of chicken fried chicken topped with Tabasco sauce. Whew, that’s some spicy chicken! Next up is their Burger & Frites, topped with goat cheese, caramelized shallots and apples, and thick applewood smoked bacon on a house made bun. Winner-winner-chicken-din…err, breakfast!
The bistro serves brunch on Saturday and Sunday, and was recently voted best brunch in town by Metromix. Get there early to get a seat because it gets crowded FAST! Taste of Belgium gets an easy 5 out of 5 stars and adds another +1 to the OTR Gateway Quarter.
