FRESH Dutch Stroopwaffels

These also go by the name of syrup waffles, I believe, and in Holland you can buy fresh ones from vendors on the street. Is there anywhere in NY where you can find such a thing?

I'm not interested in the packaged ones they sell at coffee shops, Trader Joe's, etc...

Thanks for your help!

    1. Not 100% on this, but in passing I thought I saw them advertised on the board of what looked like a frites place yesterday. This was next to the somewhat old fashioned looking Duane Reade and the Taco Bell on the south side of 14th Street just west of Union Square.

      1. Are they like the Belgian waffels, Brussels or Liege? If so, you can always try the Wafels & Dinges truck (see ).

          I am looking at a wikipedia page of waffels and I don't think they are the same thing....however, I definitely would like to eat those waffels on the page you linked to. =)

            Their website should give their locations during the week. The waffels are very good.

        2. Also, upon revisiting, google tells me that Danku (47 W 57th St, New York 10019) should have some version of them ( but that they likely have more in common with the Trader Joe's variety then the street vendor version.

          1. Danku if making them "fresh"-
            But tubs of dough and filling is not exactly what I call fresh.

            These are obviously not fresh, but they're made locally.
