Bruxie Gourmet Waffle Sandwiches
Old Towne Orange
For those of you that are uninitiated to the waffle sandwich, the concept may sound a little weird, but I assure you that it is good. Bruxie offers a variety of gourmet sandwiches, but uses freshly made waffles instead of the standard bread. The sandwiches are inspired by the common street food in Brussels. The light, airy, crispy waffles take a boring old sandwich and turn it into a culinary delight.
I was recently able to attend that grand opening celebration of the Bruxie Waffles in Rancho Santa Margarita. I was able to sample a wide variety of their sandwiches including:
Chicken and Waffles with Maple Syrup $7.95
Hot Pastrami $7.95
Turkey Avocado Club $8.95
Roasted Mushroom and Goat Cheese $7.95
Green Eggs and Ham $6.95
Lemon Cream and Berries (Very Tart! $6.50)
Seasonal Creme Brulee ($6.50)
Overall, the fan favorite for the night seemed to be the Hot Pastrami. Shaved Boar's Head pastrami is served hot with Gruyere cheese, cider slaw, spicy brown mustard and half-sour pickles. The flavors all work together well to bring forth an amazing hot pastrami sandwich. Bruxie also offers a selection of frozen custards and old fashioned cane-sugar sodas. You won't find and Pepsi or Coke here. The next time you're out looking for a sandwich, I highly recommend that you stop by your closest Bruxie for a taste experience that you won't soon forget.
