My First Waffle House

Can you believer I’ve never been to Waffle House? It’s true! So on the way back home from delaware, we stopped at one of the couple Waffle Houses we passed. Looks like there isn’t a Waffle House in greater philly. You have to go out to Lancaster or a bit deeper into Delaware than just across the border. I’ve seen these yellow signs plenty of times during my travels, but never felt compelled to go in. Well, I finally broke my Waffle House cherry.
They have waffles here. But not just waffles of course, but other breakfast type items, burgers, sandwich, y’know, diner type stuff. It was way past breakfast and lunch time, but you can get breakfast any time here. And who doesn’t love laminated placemats?
We got some waffles, bacon, eggs, and hash brown. That’s about as breakfast-y as breakfast gets. Everything was great! The waffles are big and thin and not crispy, and that’s not a bad thing. As much as I like the big motel do-it-yourself waffles which tend to have a crispy outside, these waffle house waffles are just great. It soaks up the butter and syrup so every bite is moist. And I absolutely love hash browns like this, the ones with the shredded potatoes. There’s just something about browned and crispy potatoes cooked on a big old griddle. It’s hard to duplicate that at home. And well, all this food pretty much cost next to nothing. I loved it!

Paris Baguette Cafe

Inside the H Mart building in Elkins Park, there are a bunch of little shops, including Paris Baguette. It’s a korean chain that you may find around the country, in neighborhoods that are heavy on the korean.
It’s a bread and pastry shop… but they don’t sell hoagie rolls and macarons. It’s a korean-french bakery so mostly, it’s a bunch of sweets. There’s some loaf breads but lots of individual cakes and pastries. There pan and filled breads, donuts, pies, and such.
Here are some of the really pretty cakes.
They also have some loaded waffles.
Here are just a few of the dozen random breads I picked up. They’re all good in their own way. It’s a good thing I don’t live near here because I would probably eat way too much of it!
