It’s been six years since Wafels & Dinges was founded. I missed it every time I was in town──either their food trucks were nowhere near me or I was standing right in front of a waffle truck while being way too full to have even one bite. When I saw the Wafels & Dinges truck across the street from Lincoln Center right after we checked in, my eyes widened with sparkles just like when the Ice Age saber-toothed squirrel sees an acorn. What a lucky start of our trip!
Wafels and Dinges都開店六年了，每次在紐約都錯過，要嘛就是他們的餐車離我太遙遠，不然就是站在鬆餅車前面但飽到一口也吃不下。這次剛到旅館放下行李一出來就在林肯中心對街看到Wafels & Dinges餐車！簡直跟冰原歷險記的松鼠看到橡栗一樣！
That was in early October. We were going to take a walk on the Brooklyn Bridge and then visit the 911 Memorial. The overcast sky gave me no motivation to get up early. We did not leave our hostel near Columbus Circle until 9 a.m. Once we stepped outside and walked on Broadway, I immediately regretted sleeping in. It was very foggy. Any building taller than the CNN headquarter disappeared in the heavy mist. Sprinting to the Metro and hoping the fog stick around for a bit longer, I had to make it to the Brooklyn Bridge right away.
Every time I go to New York City, I crave for the same food. Brunch at Max Brenner with banana split waffle and dark chocolate granita; Shack Stack burger from Shake Shack; gyro and chicken over rice from the Halal Guys at 6 Avenue and 53rd Street… But this time, we decided to try something different and follow Anthony Bourdain’s recommendations. Only the cheap eats though. Can’t go wrong with that.
