Another Waffle Spot Opening Tomorrow

Waffles might officially be the new cupcakes or crepes. A new waffle spot, appropriately named Wafel, is quietly opening up tomorrow in the West Loop, joining other recently opened waffle-centric eateries Waffles and Bel 50. This one features a twist on the Bel 50 concept of waffle sandwiches, choosing to focus on the portable "fold and go" variety that fit the small fast-casual space.

The menu is broken up into four sections of such waffles: Breakfast, Liege, sandwiches, and dessert. Sandwich options include unique varieties like fried chicken, prime rib, BBQ salmon gravlax, and "The Elvis." Two types of waffles, Liege and Brussels, are served.

The under-the-radar wafflery is from the same owners as New Line Tavern and within a couple blocks from Ogilvie Transportation Center. Don't be surprised to see someone eating a folded chicken and waffle sandwich on a Metra train soon.
