Eat This Now: Churro Waffle
At Makers & Finders
You know when there are two independently good foods, and you put those two foods together to make a better dish? That better dish is the churro waffle at Makers & Finders, which marries the fun of carnival food with the decadence of weekend brunch.
Each made-to-order waffle starts by combining tres leches and traditional waffle batters. It’s then fried for texture and dusted with churro seasoning. The sweetness is heightened by the finishing elements: cajeta — think Spanish caramel — and house-made chocolate coconut whipped cream, along with fresh blueberries and mint.
It’s a treat by itself, but owner Josh Molina hints that the churro waffle (chaffle?) might soon find other iterations on a secret menu. Whether it’s a lazy Sunday meal or a bite at the state fair, we’re ready for whatever’s next.
