Bruxie Gourmet Waffle Sandwiches now open in Chino Hills, CA
On November 14, 2012, Bruxie opened their 4th location in Chino Hills, CA. It all started back in 1999, when Dean Simon traveled in Belgium for business. He became fascinated with the local farmers markets and street vendors, particularly, homemade waffles prepared to order. In 2006, Brux Waffles was born after development of a waffle recipe reminiscent of this Brussels street food. Brux Waffles could be found in hotels around America and even on cruise ships. In 2009, Chef Kelly Mullarney was hired and ideas of making waffles an “all-day offering” combining sweet and savory combinations became the mission. The waffles were made thinner and folded for portability. Bruxie was born! It began Orange and opened three locations in Brea, Rancho Santa Margarita and now, Chino Hills. The location chosen at The Shoppes at Chino Hills is optimal. Facing the main street from the freeway, it’s hard to miss. At night, the Bruxie signage glows and catches your curiosity right away. The restaurant space is very open and colorful. Menu boards are hung high above so you can read them whether you are up close or back a bit in line. The Bruxie team is very friendly, attentive, and very excited to be a part of the Grand Opening.
Let’s take a look at some of their menu items:
Roasted Mushroom & Goat Cheese is Laura Chenel’s Chevre Goat Cheese, fresh basil, arugula, and balsamic reduction. This savory number could be great for breakfast (think of these items inside an omelet). The goat cheese was smooth, creamy and matched perfectly with the fresh basil. The roasted mushrooms played well with the ingredients. The arugula gave it a refreshing crisp green flavor. If you like sun-dried tomatoes, they can be added on for $1 more. Thumbs up!
