Cincinnati: Awesome Waffles from Taste of Belgium

I've always known waffles come in many varieties. There's the frozen Eggo-type with an artificial, cloyingly sweet crunch. There are the Waffle House style waffles with a darker golden crust and cakey interior. Then there are the yeasted 'Belgian' variety with deep holes for hanging onto syrup, butter, Nutella, or whatever. There's even the super-thin Italian cookie-type made with cast iron molds over an open flame. At Taste of Belgium's two locations in Cincinnati, chef Jean-François Flechet serves what he calls "the authentic Belgian waffle." The recipe, which is native to Liège, produces a cake-like doughy pastry that reminds me of...well, it's tough to say.
