In search for some comfort food to soothe my lonely heart while I was in Colombia (all alone), I checked the internet for the most recommended restaurants around Barranquilla. There were a couple of flashy ones but what got me interested was the one named Crepes and Waffles. I mean, come on! Who wouldn’t be enticed with crepes and waffles? The combo reminded me so much of childhood breakfast and childish cravings with hubby. Scanning through the internet pages, I was able to locate the one nearest my hotel. Not even thinking twice, I headed out to the mall and went right ahead in search for the restaurant. I was lucky to spot it right away.

Two mini waffles topped with fresh strawberry and banana slices and finished off with light and fluffy whipped cream and mint leaves to add some drama -- this creation was served so beautifully that it took me sometime to bring myself to taste it. Fresh fruits are hard to resist so I can only rave about the refreshing finish of this dish. I can have this every single day!
My subconscious gave me a high five as I walk out of the restaurant with a more than happy tummy. I know that there is nothing so extra ordinary or special about crepes and waffles. They are actually very easy to make and there is always a store somewhere in the corner of a mall in Manila that offers them. But having the chance to sample how Colombia offers them was the source of the high that I felt. It’s not everyday that you set foot in a foreign land that’s literally half way across the world!
