You think there isn’t anything special about waffles? Go to Kreuzberg and try the Wonder Waffel. Two words describe these special dough-based cakes: sweet and colorful! And the best thing here is: You can build your own waffle.
Just put anything in it you can imagine – Wonder Waffel has it! Fill your waffle with fresh strawberries, mango slices, coconut pralines, Smarties, chocolate sauce or just do the classy thing with applesauce and cream. It doesn’t matter what and how much – every waffle is only €3! But please watch out you don’t get addicted.
The origins of waffles lie in Belgium and France, where the oldest references for waffle irons were found in the 9th century. At the latest, in the 15th century, it became popular in Germany. But in those days waffles weren’t for everyone but only for the more wealthy people and for special days like holidays.
Other Wonder Waffel places can be found in Neukölln (Neckarstraße 2), Wedding (Grüntaler Str. 88) and in the Mall of Berlin (Leipziger Platz 12) as well.
If you need something basic to kill the hunger beforehand let me recommend one of the best Lebanese Shawarma and Falafel restaurants in Kreuzberg. The small Take Away “Maroush” is just next door – try the mixed “Maroush Teller”.
