Restaurant: Taste of Belgium

My good friend Nathan from WannaBite get together often for lunch to share blogging tips. The other day he suggested Taste of Belgium for our working lunch...I had never been for a meal (just tasted the waffles at Findlay) so I was definitely up for it! 

Taste really is the American Dream come to life - in 2007 - it started with a guy and a waffle iron. Now he's got five locations and a catering business! The lunch menu has a big variety with waffles, crepes, salads, soups, sandwiches and some classics.

At Nate's reco - I went for the Waffle 'n Chicken ($10). This is really one of their specialties and comes with a waffle, Ohio maple syrup, fried chicken breast, hot sauce and a side salad.

Nathan is a budget-conscious person - so he does not eat out much - so when he does - he makes it count and knows it's good. He LOVES the waffle 'n chicken at Taste. I'm saying that up front because I didn't really like it. The salad was good (and had good unique stuff on it) but seemed an odd pairing for such a "bad for you" dish. The waffles are great - freely admit that - but they're very heavy - so I usually like just a piece - rather than a whole on. The chicken was really fried and crispy but a bit dry.

Why Should You Go? While I didn't love what I got - I know a lot of people love it. If you're not sure - stop by Findlay and take a taste of the waffles - then go from there! They also have a wonderful case of baked goods that were HARD to walk away from!
