Manneken Belgian Waffle ❤ Tokyo

Nikko's brothers have a knack for finding great desserts. We were shopping around Ginza when one of them spotted Manneken Belgian Waffle along the road. 

A whiff of the shop's creamy buttery smell immediately encouraged us to line up.

Their icon is the Manneken Pis, a famous Brussels landmark featuring a peeing infant.

Another thing Belgium is known for is their waffles, so popular that it coined the term "Belgian Waffles". However, the more common Belgian Waffles found in pancake houses around the metro and in the United States are far too different from the original. Instead of being hard and crunchy on the outside, common waffles are almost pancake-y in texture. Manneken ones are most similar to the Liège type. Source

Their variants include chocolate, maple, caramel choclat, uji matcha and almond, but the plain remains to be their best selling product.

Waffle sets are also available.

I skipped the ice cream options to make room for the regular waffle types.

All set!

Check out the goodies we took for the road:

Here's mine -- Almond!

I love how it's crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. The almond gave it nice top note.

I was also able to have a bite of the Caramel Chocolat, a featured and seasonal product of the season. Loved this much better that I ordered some more when we spotted the next branch in Akiba. 

Akihabara Branch
Look at how cute this sales lady is

I wanted to try their ice cream waffles but they were all gone :(

With 29 branches mostly near JR Stations around Japan, they are definitely hard to miss. ❤
