Belgium Liege waffles have been around for centuries but most of us are only familiar with the traditional style. The team behind Sweet Combforts wanted to put a twist on this classic dessert. Co-Founders Geoff Manila and Executive Chef Anne Marie Damasco have teamed up with the gentlemen behind GD Bro Burger, Mark Cruz and Kevin Bobby Nguyen. This group has a history together and there's no doubt Sweet Combforts will be a culmination of all their talents. GD Bro took Geoff into their team back in August 2013, and by 2015, GD Bro competed in the Food Network 's The Great Food Truck Race, putting them on the street-food map for good. Anne Marie and Geoff had worked together before the GD Bro phase at, coincidentally enough, a waffle shop.
Belgium Liege waffles are a traditional street food that's typically eaten with your hand. When waffles were first created, they didn't have those square patterns we're all familiar with, instead they had honeycomb patterns; hence the name Sweet COMBforts. What makes Sweet Combforts' waffles so special though is the use of pearl sugars, which give a nice caramelized texture that is unlike anything else. Overall, this culinary team's goal is to make everyone's liege waffle experience a delicious and one.
Sweet Combfort's liege waffle menu will feature a variety of toppings and drizzles, along with ice cream to pair alongside. In addition, they'll be making this sweet street food even more effortless by serving them on a stick.
