Sometimes I am inspired by the idea of getting to a new place with plant-based foods before the Vegan Twosome get there to review it. Other times, I might just be inspired by the promise of waffles! This time it was the latter....and well, the former also! As we sat, a week earlier, and munched our Paratha Bread Wraps from Rollzzy, we noticed the new waffle place next door. A closer examination of their menu revealed, you guessed it, vegan waffles. So we made plans to return the following weekend.
KOS by Waffleland Cafe - Vegan Options - Happy World Vegan Day!
KOS is on Robson just south of Seymour in the little row of small restaurants anchored by Japadog. KOS means "having a good time" in Norwegian and is not a comment on what's happening in the kitchen!
We started with their Chicken and Waffles. The chicken may have been a Beyond product or something similar. It was tasty enough with some avocado, vegan mayo and some lovely cherry tomato halves. We love the slightly crunchier Norwegian waffles but we're not sure if its the Norwegian part or the vegan part that makes them so good!
We also had the Summer Fruit Waffle. Same crunchy, fluffy waffle but with fresh peaches and pears topped with maple syrup and walnuts. Very good!
There is a small amount of seating inside but if the weather is passable, there is patio seating on the street for the restaurant row. The funniest thing is that possibly at the same time that we were trying out KOS, the Vegan Twosome were checking out the original Waffleland Cafe in Gastown! All right; We'll call it a draw. Make sure to check out their review on YouTube. Thanks Waffleland for considering the vegan folks while planning your menu. And Happy World Vegan Day to everyone!
