There’s something kind of great about dessert restaurants. Only a few years ago we really didn’t have many options save for a couple different ice-cream chains. Now we have the likes of San Churros, Theobroma, Koko Black and the Northbridge cult hit, Superstar Waffles.
Recently Jeremy had a dinner with his friends but having work the next day didn’t stick around long for the after drinks. So when he came home we decided we’d go out for dessert at Superstar Waffles.
My order of the banoffee waffles ($9.50) comes with fresh bananas on top of warm toffee, with cream and maple syrup. Feeling greedy I also add on a scoop of ice-cream – why not! The banoffee is a waffle flavour my girlfriend Linda introduced me to – and I’ve been hooked ever since.
The fresh bananas work perfectly with the toffee which reminds me of dulce de leche. It’s sweet and oozy and just plain delicious.
It’s funny how such a simple dessert can be so satisfying but that’s what Superstar Waffles has done. They’ve taken something very basic – your humble waffle – and turned it into a marketable and highly sought after product. Every time I drop by for my waffle fix it’s packed out and I’ve not had a bad experience there – it’s always consistently great. It is definitely a superstar in Perth’s dessert scene and now that I know it’s opened reasonably late on the weekends it’s even better in my eyes!
