La Pearl Waffles began nearly 3 years ago here in Howard County. The Business idea won 1st place at Howard Community College in the 2006 Rocket Marketing Pitch Contest (formerly known as Wally Waffles). We specialize in authentic Belgian waffles. La Pearl Waffles participates in special events and we offer catering. To accomodate for the growing interest, we are very excited to announce a new addition to the food truck craze, we have an all new waffle truck! We have gone mobile, and you can find our location updates via Twitter, Facebook and the website. Stay tuned as La Pearl Waffles Expands...
What's a REAL Belgian Waffle?
They originate from a town in Belgium called Liege. Pearl Waffle is a richer, denser, sweeter, and thicker waffle. They are cooked from a dough not a typical American style batter. The dough has pearl sugar chunks, hence the name La Pearl, "La" meaning "the" in french. If it needs syrup, it’s not a TRUE authentic Belgian Waffle. They can be eaten anytime of the day as a breakfast, snack or dessert.
How does La Pearl compare to boxed or typical restaurant-style waffles?
La Pearl Waffles simply do not compare because they do not exist here. They are not your plain unsweetened boxed or restaurant style waffles and you can’t make these on a regular waffle iron. The Belgian waffle iron weight ranges from 60 lbs-100lbs and allows the waffle to bake at the perfect temperature. No need for syrup, the waffle is a sweet vanilla flavored, thick textured Liege waffle with pearl sugar chunks. Within each of these Pearls lies the authentic taste which caramelizes on the outside of the waffle when baked. Adding syrup to these waffles would be like adding syrup to a donut...no need because they are already sweetened.
We experimented with the recipe & ingredients over here in the U.S countless times and could not come up with a product that matches the original Belgian Liege Waffle flavor. Due to the difference in flavor of Belgian quality ingredients, we decided to have the dough made there to preserve the authentic original flavors. We are happy to say that eating a La Pearl Waffle is the same as eating a waffle in Belgium.
