Review: Slammin’ Salmon On-A-Stick from Nordic Waffles

OH MY! This is the new food of the year! Nordic Waffles is brand new to the Fair this year, but they’ve already made a strong impression in one week’s time. With seven delicious options, a Fairgoer might be tempted to make seven total visits, because after trying one, you will want more.

Gotta love the goat on the roof!

Let’s start with the common denominator across all seven options: the waffles. They are thin but perfectly crispy on the edges and soft in the middle, with a flavor on their own that renders syrup unnecessary. For my first choice, I tried one of the four savory options, a sliced and smoked salmon with cream cheese and green onion. Everything in this sandwich is wonderful. The salmon is both flavorful and plentiful, with a beautiful pink color. The cream cheese freshens the sandwich up and bonds it all together, and the green onion adds a bit of crunch and color. This sandwich is perfect, and a good value at $10 for a very good lunch-sized portion. I imagine I will be returning to try other options from Nordic Waffles before this year’s Fair is through (and maybe even come back before I leave for the day, they’re just that good).
