Move over IHOP, Waffle Sandos are here!

I'm a big fan of desserts, so when I heard about Miura Waffle Milk Bar in downtown, I knew I had to come give it a try. They specialize in waffle sandos (sando means "sandwich" in Japanese) and flavored milks. The waffle menu is small, categorized into sweet and savory. 

I wasn't too thrilled with the idea of having a savory waffle, but Miura has me completely converted! Pictured below are the savory sandos that I had. The Garlic Chicken had a perfect blend of tender chicken, miso and something similar to cabbage coleslaw. Every vegetable was very crisp and fresh. Absolutely delicious. The BEC was also very good, perfect for breakfast! Most importantly, the waffle was heavenly -- super light and fluffy with a hint of sweetness. It's hard to imagine a sweet waffle going so well with savory ingredients, but Miura does it right.
Garlic Chicken $7.49 + tax
BEC - Bacon Egg Cheese $5.49 + tax
For the sweet sandos, I had the Banana Caramel and Cookies & Creme. These two were delicious as well. I half expected it to be too sweet and sickening but to my surprise, the sweetness level was minimal. The whipped cream was light and fresh, as well as the waffles. There were crumbled cookie bits (Oreos?) that added a nice crunch. The caramel sauce was rich and had a bit of a bitter taste to it.
Cookies & Cream $4.49 + tax

Banana Caramel $4.49 + tax

I loved the Blueberry Yoggy Milk. It was a light refreshing drink, great for a hot summer day! The mango milk (not pictured) had a nice mango flavor but did not really taste like milk. 

Miura is a new favorite on my list of regular go-to places. It has great food, great service, and a nice clean environment for dining in. However, the only downside is that they close at 7pm on weekdays and 5pm on Sundays, so after dinner dessert here is definitely not an option. 

Next time you're craving waffles, ditch IHOP and check out Miura Waffle Milk Bar won't be disappointed!
