Splendid Sausage Company launch exclusive new waffle menu

Splendid MCR show off their new 'Dangerously Addictive' waffle menu...

If there is a better day to launch a calorie-fuelled menu than the fourth of July, then it is not yet known to humans. New kid on the block Splendid Sausage Company aptly chose Independence Day on which to show off their new ‘Dangerously Addictive’ waffle menu.

Though the menu name is their choice and not ours, it has to be said that these monstrous desserts are indeed both addictive and dangerous. We’re greeted with fourth of July milkshakes (excellent, as are all of the shakes whipped up in the Splendid kitchen) before having our palettes prepared for the sugar onslaught with special Yankee hotdog sliders.

If the sliders were served as some sort of buffer for the waffle-fest that awaited us, then it failed miserably because rather than picking at them sensibly as owner Mike Edge did (he knew what was coming) we wolfed them down.

When the stars of the show started to arrive therefore, any chance of surviving through the three-course waffle meal were – unlike our stomachs – slim. What we did manage to sample was exactly what we’ve come to expect from the restaurant just off Albert Square.

Everything that can be made on site, is made on site. That means that the ‘Chocolate and Lots and Lots (and Lots)’ brazenly held house-made brownies of both the white and milk variety within its whipped cream mountain. The ‘Born in the USA’ proudly bore the weight of candied bacon, maple syrup and blueberries while the Seasonal Fruit boasted succulent summer berries.

Within each mound of cream hid a scoop of ice cream and of course, below lay the waffles themselves. The Splendid chefs were clearly motivated to do their very best with the batter because the waffles were also marvellous.

Unlike the Yankee-inspired hot dog sliders we sampled, the waffle menu isn’t just here for the 4 July weekend. It’s here to stay.

Do visit, and make sure you’re more sensible than we were when faced with hot dogs and waffles and milkshakes as good as these.
