The Wicked Waffle - Most of the Wicked's selections seemed quite healthy and I didn't notice anything with Nutella featured as an ingredient...but methinks you might be able to sinfully indulge if so inclined!

Wicked Good Apr 20, 2013
So I grabbed the metro to Farragut Square and sought a place to score lunch while awaiting my buddy to rendezvous for the protest run in the afternoon. The Wicked Waffle caught my eye, largely due to my years in Maine, where “wicked good” is a common accolade.

The Wicked’s gig is substituting fluffy waffles for bread to create a broad variety of sandwiches. Although the flavor doesn’t compete with more savory sandwich breads (focaccia comes to mind), it was surprisingly tasty and incredibly light. Being diabetic I’m always concerned about the calories I’m ingesting and the meal was surprisingly within reasonable bounds.

I ordered the Rare Roast Beef & Swiss, lured in by the horseradish cream ingredient, but instantly had regrets after placing my order. Reading more closely while preparation was underway, I determined the balsamic onion topping was actually balsamic onion marmalade (marmalade was on the next line of the menu board). Sure enough the sandwich maker was plastering my meal with marmalade as I begged off, but since they prepare their creations right in front of you she simply replied “no worries” and scraped the sweet stuff away.

The end result was scrumptious and surprisingly light (the waffles were so hefty in size I thought I would be fueled through the 5K run, but needed a snack afterwards). Because it is deli style there is no wait staff, but everyone behind the counter was polite, professional and most important, knowledgeable. The broad selection of sandwiches is supported by an inviting variety of soups and coffees. Because I was concerned of going overboard with the sandwich I declined any soup (now regretted) and I noticed that everyone in front of me scored some of their java.

Wicked Waffle offers indoor seating at a few bars and table seating at their outdoor patch of the sidewalk. A recommended stop if you are looking for a yummy sandwich to fuel your foot exploration of Washington around Farragut Square.
