Roughly ten months have passed since my initial downtown excursions, and time seems to have flown by even more rapidly than I was aware of. Between early mornings, heavy intakes of caffeine, and tiring commutes, limited durations of "me-time" have been able to be salvaged at the end of weekdays and daylight hours on weekends (because chores aren't magically going to complete themselves).
After six months of failed initiations, postponing, and working around schedule changes, a much-needed meetup in the form of an excursion to Bang Bang was finally made possible.
The storefront was void of any banners that notified passerbys that they had arrived at the correct location; the sole sign was situated in one of the outward-facing windows and donned a muted gold coat.
Both of us had a strong desire for egg waffles - some may refer to it as a "puffle" - so it was only a matter of flavour selection.
Prior to pouring the batter onto the grill, it was observed that one of the members of kitchen staff shot a laser beam onto both surfaces. "Ah, he's checking the temperature." I applauded in my head.
And contrary to my eggspectations (pun very much intended), the waffles were as crisp and they were chewy! They were darker than regular egg waffles and presented with rugged edges, but didn't lose any other points in terms of visual appeal. It was quite the lovely surprise!
The girl serving us was a tad too optimistic, thinking that she could fit all six palm-sized cookies into one flimsy paper bag. It should have been obvious when the fourth cookie refused to enter with ease though...
While located at a definite distance from a major transit terminal, a second visit is still plausible, especially with good company in tow.
Munching away and chatting inside Bang Bang wasn't particularly easy due to the high volume of noise, so we took to hunting down a nearby coffee shop to continue the conversation.
She noted that the Small pizzas were intended to be one person's portion, while the Medium and Large were meant for sharing between two and three people respectively.
But with such an outstanding range of tasty options, Maker Pizza is too good to cross off the list. (I mean, they've revolutionized the concept of pizza! It's not just cheese and pepperoni anymore.) I'd likely order takeout next time for the sake of my hair and attire though!
