Taste of Belgium

People have strange ways of interpreting restaurant names.
Call it Terry's Turf Club, no one expects grass and dirt on the menu.
Call it Blue Elephant, same thing, you won't see elephant trunk on a plate.
But call it Taste of Belgium and you better bring your waffle A-game.

I was expecting waffles with various toppings, yes they had that, and more!
An extensive menu guarantees you won't get bored at breakfast or brunch anytime soon.
Ms. 5chw4r7z had chicken and waffles and I had Belgian meatballs. Beef and pork with onions and a sauce that was just crazy.

And the fries! not cooked in wimpy vegetable oil, vegans beware, these guys were cooked in beef tallow.
The fries took me right back to the Canfield Fair. The volunteer firemen, of which my dad was one, sold hand cut fries to raise money. The local scout troop, of which I was one took turns manning the fry cutter. So I had to know, did Taste of Belgium have one mounted to the wall in the kitchen?
Yes, yes they did.

The huge front windows give it a European, cosmopolitan feel, good for relaxing and people watching. It was a strange feeling, seeing people walk past that I know, and people inside I know, the place feels like its been there for years already.
Once they get settled in Jean-Fran├žois wants to add dinner to the menu, but for now they are open 7am till 3pm, Monday thru Saturday.
