Madame Waffle @ Mid Valley

My friend and I came to Mid Valley for two reasons...1) we wanted to attend Boey's book signing event and 2) we planned to visit Pandora ;-)  So, on an eagerly anticipated Saturday afternoon, we found ourselves at Madame Waffle @ Mid Valley (a week after it opened) for a quick bite before Boey's book signing session.  As the name suggests, this place deals in.......waffles!
 
Their menu states that their Belgian-style waffles (made fresh in store daily) uses premium quality ingredients from Japan through the brand's tagline "Belgian waffles meet Japanese flavours".  [#Note: Initially, I didn't know what type of waffles they were but got this definition from Wikipedia..."the Li├Ęge waffle is a richer, denser, sweeter, and chewier waffle. Native to the greater Wallonia region of Eastern Belgium – they're an adaptation of brioche bread dough, featuring chunks of pearl sugar which caramelise on the outside of the waffle when baked. It is the most common type of waffle available in Belgium and prepared in plain, vanilla and cinnamon varieties by street vendors across the nation".]
 
First up, we ordered a Coffee Tiramisu @ RM16 which is a coffee waffle with a tiramisu gelato, served with coffee whipped cream and strawberries, and a drizzle of chocolate sauce at the bottom.  When the dish was brought to our table (you order and pay at the counter first), we could see that it was prettily presented.

If you enjoy coffee, you're sure gonna enjoy this tremendously ;)

The tiramisu gelato was nice and creamy...everyone loved it!

From their menu (which I think you can take away incidentally), your other options of waffles with gelato ice-cream (all priced at RM16) on offer here are:

1)  Classic (waffle with strawberries and bananas, topped with Belgian chocolate sauce and vanilla gelato)
2)  Signature Green Tea (green tea waffle with matcha gelato, strawberries, whipped cream and azuki beans)
3)  Banana Nutella (waffle, nutella, banana & double chocolate gelato, glazed with Belgian chocolate)
 
We also picked up a 6-pc Assorted Waffles @ RM36 where you can choose from their 7 types of waffles available.  The flavours include original, honey, cinnamon, matcha, coffee, white chocolate and dark chocolate (we left out the matcha flavoured one).  Strangely, the waffles came in a very nice take-away box (even though we were dining in).

Let me give you a sneak peak inside!  Unfortunately, the chocolaty ones looked a bit messy in the take-away box (as they've been squished together), so excuse the not-so-nice pic :(
 
As you can see, the 7 available flavours are printed on the box...and these are the different types of waffles if you were to order them separately.  As some of them looked pretty similar, and I can't remember the sequence of my pics, I hope I've paired the right flavour to the right pic (otherwise, my apologies if I've gotten them mixed up).
 
Original @ RM5.90 (vanilla infused waffle with pearl sugar)
 
Honey @ RM6.50 (pure honey glazed waffle)
 
Cinnamon @ RM6.50 (with cinnamon sugar topping)

Matcha @ RM6.50 (Japanese green tea infused waffle) - this is the one we chose to omit.

Coffee @ RM6.90 (coffee espresso infused waffle)

White Chocolate @ RM6.90 (with Belgian milk & white chocolate topping)

Dark Chocolate @ RM6.90 (with Belgian dark chocolate topping)

Overall, the waffles were crisp on the outside and fluffy and chewy on the inside....they were very good!  I think out of the 6 flavours I tried, I preferred the traditional flavours of vanilla, honey and cinnamon (though I enjoyed the original one the most).  The pearl sugar that had caramelised on the outside gave it the crispy, crunchy texture...it was a heavenly bite ;)  For chocolate lovers, I'm sure you'd find both the white and dark chocolate waffles to your liking (but a bit too rich for me towards the end and we had trouble finishing).  I guess we were too greedy and ordered too many to try.

My friend had the Flat White @ RM10.50.  Their coffee selections are fairly priced between RM7.50 - RM12.50.

I must say their house-blend speciality coffees here are pretty strong (leaning towards slightly bitter).
 
I went with the Piccolo Latte @ RM9.50.

If you're not into strong coffees, I suggest you go with the other drinks on offer like Japanese green tea (hot or ice), hot teas, hot or cold chocolate and homemade sodas, priced between RM8.50 - RM12.50.

We had actually planned to have dinner after our shopping at Pandora but we were too stuffed by then....don't underestimate the waffles, people!  They may look smallish and light but 7 waffles (+ ice cream and coffee) for 2 adults & 2 very young kids turned out to be too much for us.  But, we went home feeling utterly happy and satiated coz 1) we got our book signed, 2) we left Pandora with "something" and 3) we ate at Madame Waffle....triple yay!!

My Personal Opinion

If you have never tried a Belgian Liege waffle, then you should give this a try. They're really good!  But my utmost favourite had to be the one eaten with tiramisu gelato and strawberries.  It's the combination of ice-cream and strawberries (to cut through the sweetness of the waffles) that made it all work so well together.

Choose any one (or more) of your favourite flavours for take-aways or dine-in where you can enjoy them with their gelato ice-cream and speciality coffees...now that's a dream come true for any gal :)

Like their catch line.....these are "life's simple pleasures"....so, what are you waiting for?

It's the sweetest time of the year!
