Proprietor Hector Garcia adds a whole new twist to a breakfast favorite. Delivering mouthwatering sweet and savory creations with Belgian Liege waffles as the star attraction, Hector offers a variety of options to the most discriminating waffle lover.
The unique pillowy texture of Belgian Liege waffles comes from the buttery risen dough that has pearl sugars lightly folded into the mixture. The pearls, which are little beads of compressed sugar, are imported from Belgium along with the pure cast-iron skillets used to cook the waffles. But the real magic happens while the waffles cook in the irons; the sugars caramelize, thus creating a sweet exterior crunch while maintaining a warm and soft center.
“I'm so into building my food to look aesthetically pleasing to the eye. I think food is art. My food is super simple, but it tastes super good.” –Hector Garcia
Waffle Me Up got its start seven years ago in a pop-up tent in Caldwell and Nampa markets. Eventually, the waffle eatery ended up at Boise Farmers Market before moving into its current location. Calling downtown Boise home on Capitol Street, the Capitol building serves as the perfect backdrop. Hector is also expanding to add a new location in Meridian at the intersection of Linder and Chinden, opening September 2019.
Chicken and Waffles
Start with a stack of crispy and sweet waffles. Add to that two chicken tenderloins that have been marinated in buttermilk. Generously drizzle with a rosemary and bacon gravy, and garnish with a double-battered, deep-fried onion ring.
A sweet and savory dish that delivers the comfort of Southern cooking with a modern twist.
Waffle Me Strawberry
Nutella spread over the fluffy waffle, topped with fresh strawberries, drizzled with house-made strawberry sauce, and finished off with fresh whipped cream and a sprinkling of shaved chocolate.
Undoubtedly a classic choice for breakfast but most certainly a decadent selection for dessert.
