Batter or Dough*

Batter or Dough is a relatively new coffee and waffle place in The Block, SM North EDSA. Now, people of Metro Manila, especially those who live in Quezon City and its environs, can troop there and have their caffeine and sweet cravings fixed from morning until late at night.

Batter or Dough serves golden waffles that are crisp on the outside but velvety smooth and light on the inside. To make their waffles more mouthwatering (is that even possible?), it offers several toppings to choose from: dulce de leche with sliced almonds, cinnamon and real maple syrup, Nutella, cookie butter, and wampler, among others. Wampler is perfect for those who like to eat a little of everything because it is a combination of four tiny slices of waffle in one order, namely, batter, Nutella, cinnamon and whipped butter.

It is also fun watching the men in their light blue long sleeve button down shirts making the waffles. It lends a certain professionalism and credibility in making something so heavenly. Also, the place smells divine, with the whiff of freshly-cooked waffle wafting in the air. George Calombaris of MasterChef Australia would have said, “YUM!” if the aroma reached his olfactory sense.

*I do not drink coffee, so I cannot write about that.
