|La Pearl's mini waffle with biscoff spread|
This is the La Pearl waffle truck. It's a Howard County staple now serving warm waffles with various toppings like ice cream, fruit and whipped cream. They're a treat well worth both the calories and a little work tracking them down.
I had a La Pearl waffle at a neighborhood event a few weeks ago, and I thought it was unique and delicious. I had a mini with biscoff spread, a thick liquid made from ground cookies. They compare it to a spread made from graham crackers.
Either way, it showed off the real talent of La Pearl. These are fresh-made waffles made from a batter that they import from Belgium. The plain waffle is lightly sweet and would make a terrific breakfast or snack. Then they only get better when you add your own toppings.
La Pearl's Twitter page is the best place to follow their locations. They post schedules. Some days they just post where they are.
In the initial months, the truck was regularly near Howard Community College, but the summer schedule has varied more. They go to festivals, swim clubs, schools and more. They also rent the truck for parties and special events. Not that you get to drive. They will come to your party and serve waffles.
Again, you should check for La Pearl's location through its Twitter page or its Web site. They're looking to partner with restaurants, bakeries and other businesses. If you're wondering, check them out or check out this tweet.
