Except for a perfect vanilla on vanilla cupcake, I’m definitely a non-traditionalist when it comes to food. The more creative the flavors and combinations, the more I want to try things and often, the more I love them. I especially adore really inventive twists on really classic foods. So as you can imagine, this totally unique Hawaiian waffle-burger combination was my foodie dream come true.
From the kitchen of Streat Burger in Lakewood, the former home of 56 West. I was sad when I found their doors closed a few months ago, so then very happy to see them reopen again recently. The menu is pick your own protein/base/style so really, the possibilities are endless. The first time we dined there I went more traditional but oh my did I regret that move when I spotted those waffle-burger works of art a few tables down. So tonight, a second chance.
Herb Turkey Burger-Masa Waffle-Pinapple mango relish, sesame teriyaki lardons, habanero aioli, sweet and spicy mustard, greens. A crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside waffle topped with a party of unique, fresh flavors. Oh yes! Everything I dreamed of.
All kinds of deluxe combinations means we can go again and again and never get bored. Although I think I could actually eat this exact combination again and again and never get bored either.
I’m sorry I went missing for a while. Changes are on the horizon – although one thing that never changes is the need to eat (delicious food). So let’s meet here again to talk about that and other things, soon.
