Winning Waffles: New food truck in Oklahoma City has heart of a champion

Waffle Champion is Oklahoma City's first and only food truck specializing in gourmet waffles.

When the truck returns to its normal Thursday and Friday locale, it'll be with a menu made exclusively for May. Chances are, it'll be every bit as good — maybe better.

As for April, they offered three savories and three sweets. The savories included eggs and wild boar — which Taylor said was the bounty of a friendly hunter — in one called the Zuko; pepperoni and other pizza-friendly ingredients in the one named after Kenicki; and loads of seasonal vegetables in a third.

As for the sweets, the Sandra D begins with a cinnamon-roll batter and ends in brown butter and local pecans; the Frenchie is a platform for fresh fruit. But the coup de grace is named for Rizzo. Let your palate imagine the bliss it might encounter if it hosted a ball for peanut butter, nutella, almond Snickers pieces, fresh whipped cream and organic banana slices.

You'll pay $6 for these treats, but under the right pressure from heart and hunger, you might pay $10.

Taylor said she and partner Todd Woodruff might some day dabble in bricks and mortar, but for now they plan to concentrate on operating out of the truck and spreading the Waffle Champion gospel as far the road will take them.
