Wafels & Dinges are rightfully known for their wonderful dessert wafels, but you can also get a delicious, savory lunch at one of their trucks. Just be careful if you want a savory wafel, because they are not available at the free-standing W&D carts around town. Only the W&D trucks have the equipment needed to make savory lunch wafels.READ MORE: Officials: 3% Rise In Tolls On New Jersey Highways, Parkways To Begin Jan. 1
Not long ago on Twitter, we saw that W&D are now offering sausage & gravy on a wafel. This is something we had to try!
The sausage and gravy wafel costs the same as pulled pork or chicken on a wafel, which is $10.75. That’s a little on the high side, but there is literally nothing else like this on the streets of NYC.
Just like the other savory wafel lunches, they use 2 hash brown potato wafels, one on top and one underneath. Hash brown wafels are genius! They are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, just like hash browns. We could taste a little black pepper is the potato wafel, which was expected, but we also tasted lemon, which was a bit of a surprise.
When they were making up our lunch, we asked for scallions on top, and you should too. It’s the perfect topping for sausage and gravy.READ MORE: VIDEO: Startup Mortgage Company Fires Hundreds Of Employees On Zoom Call; Experts Say This Is Part Of 'New Normal'
If you’re familiar with sausage gravy, the emphasis can be on either the sausage or the gravy. In this case, it was most definitely on the sausage part of the equation. This dish was loaded with crumbled sausage, and the gravy basically held the pieces of sausage together, while adding a creamy, slightly peppery flavor.
A small side salad of arugula and pickled onions came with lunch. This was a good way to end the meal, as it cleansed the palette after the heaviness of sausage and gravy and hash brown wafels. This was a filling lunch.
You can find Wafels & Dinges trucks and carts in many spots around town. However, as we said earlier, the savory wafel lunches are only available at the trucks (and their café in the East Village).
