Waffles, Waffles Everywhere

When we first arrived in Jerusalem, Rafi and I went to get waffles at Babette's downtown.

Last week, after months of a lovely, waffle-free existence, all I could think about was waffles. Waffles with ice cream. Waffles with whipped cream. Warm, gooey waffles. Waffles, waffles, waffles.

So here is a peek at the two dates Rafi and I went on last week (one with our buddy and pal Dan D.), as seen through the eyes of a waffle-hungry student.

Waffle #1 - Aldo on Emek Refaim. Ribat Chalav / Dulce De Leche sauce, Oreo ice cream and hard chocolate shell, with a side of whipped cream. Shared with Dan D.

Waffles #2 & #3 - Babette on Shammai, just off of Yoel Solomon. One Ribat Chalav / Dulce De Leche Waffle, one Vanilla Cream Waffle. We shared, but I like Ribat Chalav better.

Rafi and I look surprisingly fit, considering that all we do is eat waffles. And drink hot chocolate. The hot chocolate at Babette's was ridiculous. Realllllly rich.

By the way, Babette's wins the tastier waffle contest, in case you were wondering.

I seem to be the only one to leave you comments, I guess that means I'll just have to continue so you feel loved. Anyways, those waffles look amazing!!! Waffle-mania 2008!!! wooo!!! I went to Max Brenner's tonight, yum. I was sharing the chocolate mess with my friend but sadly we had about five bites and got full. But their italian hot chocolate is amazing. In a hug mug of course...I was going to say you don't have that in Israel, except it originated there!
