The Sandwich: The folks
behind Viva La Waffle have created a perfectly thin waffle, crisp on
the outside and airy on the inside, to serve as the "bread" in their
various waffle sandwich creations. In this case it is
over-stuffed with a delicious boudin filling (not in the casing) and
topped with a generous handful of small cracklin crumbles and then
drizzled with a thick and sweet pouring of
Steen's world famous pure
cane sugar syrup. VLW has taken what is a classic combo
in the boudin sandwich drizzled with Steen's and ramped it up with
the crispy waffle and the crunchy cracklin. The boudin filling
is super tasty with a hint of black pepper and porky goodness.
It sticks together nicely, so it doesn't fall out of the sandwich
and the cracklin add a nice textural contrast. The Steen's,
though, pulls it all together and adds the truly unique touch to
this sandwich. They may call it the Downtowner, but it is a
Cajun classic with a modern twist through and through.
Comments: You might blanch
at the price, but this is a hefty sandwich!
