Travels with Brownie: Crepes y Waffles

Frutas del bosque waffle

We just got back from a quick trip to Colombia for a family wedding. It was my third trip there and my first time at Crepes & Waffles. Both crepes and waffles were consumed...…

Let's back up for a minute. Crepes & Waffles is a local chain that specializes in its namesake products and has a huge location in El Dorado international airport in Bogota. Lawman has regaled me with stories of visits from his childhood on trips to and from visiting family and on every visit, I've looked longingly in the direction of the restaurant as we rushed to our gate. Last time on our red eye we tarried too long getting through security and got there just as the grate was getting closed, but this time, this time we checked in with PLENTY of time to spare so we got to check out the brand new location in the just opened brand new international terminal at El Dorado.

Tia recommended the crepes stroganoff which Lawman nabbed and I went for the crepes Remini which came with goat cheese, ample, warm delicious goat chese in a crispy crepe with tomatoes and a salad. Soo good.

Lawman was also pleased with his stroganoff which had plenty of tender mushrooms and beef pieces. It definitely was a heartier lunch and a good option if you have a long flight home.

For the dessert we could no longer ignore the waffle side of the menu and ordered the Frutas del Bosque waffle. Tia had recommended the frutas del bosque frozen yogurt which is what we thought came on the Frutas del Bosque waffle, but it was actually covered with chopped fresh fruit then topped with vanilla ice cream and fresh cream. No matter. It was still awesome.

If you find yourself with a layover in Bogota, check out Crepes & Waffles for either a meal or dessert. I'll definitely be back.
