Some people requested I do more Restaurant Reviews…I only really do reviews of restaurants that are interesting or…terrible. Who wants to read “I got a wrap and it was good…”.
I went to Funk and Waffles last weekend. My housemate and I have been dying to try this place and what better night than a Friday (because we can still be back to watch TLC at night). We both are waffle obsessed and this restaurant was actually on man versus food.
To give you a brief overview, it’s a small little café across from Syracuse campus that serves waffles. They have a lot of different combinations (and many that inspired me). They also have live bands as well but we weren’t going to be in town then so we just went for dinner. I’d also assume it’s real hit for people hung over to go and get their carbs the day after as well.
Moving on, when I saw they sold coffee mugs I clearly needed to buy one for my collection. As a girl who likes her waffles and collects coffee mugs…well erm…duh.
I decided to go with one of the savory waffles personally and I know I’ll be back again beforehand to get a sweet waffle. I’m running a couple of races in Syracuse before…so that will be the time.
I decided to get the “Florentine” which was salmon, feta and spinach. Then I decided to be creative and get a buckwheat base. I’ll tell you, it did not disappoint. I wish there had been a bit more salmon on it, but that’s okay the food was less than 10 dollars so I can’t complain.
I think for me personally, if I had gone to Syracuse I would have probably been down here a lot more than I should. Not only is the food great, but the atmosphere is just as cool. It’s “funky” and has that band scene vibe which I enjoy. They host a whole slew of open mic events so if that is your scene and you are in Syracuse…well I recommend it. Or if you just like waffles (like me).
So yes, obviously this restaurant deserved an entire post on my blog because I think the last 99/100 food posts I’ve done are waffle related.
Question for you:
Favorite college (or now) restaurant hangout?
