Tokyo Disney has it's fair share of character inspired food and my personal favorite has to be Mickey Waffles. I can have those babies anytime of the day. I really like the location of the Great American Waffle Company. I like sitting outdoors, munching on a Mickey Waffle and watching the world go by. A Hot Cocoa, a Mickey Waffle and beautiful weather, along with that atmosphere is all I need when visiting Tokyo Disneyland. It makes me feel all fuzzy inside. It's tough to beat that combination.
My go-to Mickey Waffle is the Maple Sauce Waffle. 8 times out of 10, that's the waffle that I get when visiting the Great American Waffle Company. This time however, I went with the Strawberry & Custard Waffle. Spring is here and spring equates to Cherry Blossoms and strawberries in Japan. I wanted to embrace everything about this season, so I decided to go with this plate of Mickey's face all drenched in bodily liquid colors.
The Strawberry & Custard Waffle costs 450 yen. That's 40 yen more expensive than the Maple Waffle or the Chocolate Waffle. Being more expensive, my highly mathematical mind (As you can tell from the video below), expected this waffle to be better than the other two. When it came to the texture of the waffle, as you might expect, it was the same as the other two. I love the texture of Mickey Waffles. Crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. That's where all similarities between Mickey Waffles end.
The Strawberry & Custard Waffle was a little too sweet for me. It's the sweetest one among the three. The strawberry jam along with the custard created this super sweet concoction in my mouth that made me wanna drink some water every time I took a bite. I didn't dare add any of the whipped cream to this combination. If I did, Pirates of The Caribbean might have had to close down for a bit. The boats wouldn't have had enough water to run properly. It did get better when I added the little cubes of strawberries to the mix. The sourness from the strawberries kicked a bit of the sweetness out and added a refreshing oomph to it. The only problem was, there were very little pieces of strawberries on the plate. Definitely didn't have enough to accompany every bite of the waffle. This goes to show that a higher price tag does not equate to a better product. Bring on the Maple Waffle! I'm done with this Strawberry & Custard Waffle!
