Of all breakfast foods out there, I must say I don’t eat enough waffles. So for breakfast/lunch one day, we decided to try Miura Waffle Milk Bar which is located downtown on the corner of Davie Street and Howe Street. This little restaurant doesn’t only serve breakfast food, they’re open all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers a variety of waffle dishes ranging from savoury to sweet. Miura has taken waffles to a whole new level, which is probably why they were featured in an episode of Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here hosted by John Catucci earlier this year.
We visited Miura on a Saturday, so unfortunately we missed out on the weekday specials. But that’s ok because their menu offered a variety of waffles at a decent prices ranging from $4.99 – $8.49. We ordered two waffles, one each, and they were perfect sized portions to fill our tummies as the first meal of the day.
This is the Garlic Chicken Waffle ($8.49). The filling for this consisted of shredded chicken, tomatoes, cabbage slaw, roasted garlic and a light mayonnaise dressing. The waffle itself was so moist and fluffy! For crunch-lovers though, unfortunately there is barely any. But that doesn’t mean it was soggy either! This was definitely a savoury waffle, and it’s good for any meal of the day! 10/10
This is the Fruits and Cream Waffle ($6.49) filled with light fresh cream and seasonal fruits, which in this case was blueberries. Compared to the Garlic Chicken Waffle this was definitely more breakfast-y, and the combination of the homemade waffles and fresh cream was so delicious! It was like biting into a fluffy cloud of creamy waffle-y goodness mmmmmm! My only complaint is that I wish there was more variety of fruits, personally I’m a fruit fiend so I enjoy eating everything and anything beyond berries as well! 9/10
Overall, my experience with Miura was very good. It was a small restaurant but there was definitely continued traffic coming in and out.
For those who are interested in the waffle-making process at Miura, here’s a little video I found on YouTube for you!
