My last Paleta day!!!
Abe and I split the breakfast – I gave him the fruit/eggs and kept the Vanilla Brown Rice Cereal + nuts for myself
Tiny – fit in a tea cup
Added a chopped apricot
A few hours later I was starving and broke into the snack (Dolmas)
Just one grape leaf to tide me over – I had a lunch date!!!
There’s basically one thing on the menu
I wonder if the guys who work here think, “And in the morning, I’m making waffles!”
Couldn’t decide between savory or sweet, so we got both and shared!
Ham and cheese on a crispy, thick waffle
I doused mine in Trappey’s Louisiana Hot Sauce – perfect combo of salty, sweet, and spicy!
The other half had the same chunks of caramelized pearl sugar throughout the batter, topped with fresh fruit…
…and Crunchy Speculoos!
What IS Speculoos?!? Well, it’s the whole reason we came to Shaky Alibi!
I had heard an interview on a recent “Dinner Party Download” about this popular Belgian paste, a nut-free spread that is the basis of the popular Delta airline cookie known as “Biscoff.” I don’t know how to describe it. Sweet. Delicious. Someone on facebook said it “tastes like Christmas.”
Apparently there was a shortage (amongst other controversies) over Speculoos, but no worries – you can order it online or buy it at Shoop’s European Deli if you’re in Los Angeles. TJ’s makes a version of the cookie as well, if you want to make your own!
