Cheesy. Caramelized. Goodness.We're always inventing unbelievable things here at Salt & Straw, but we have a special creation hitting the waffle irons at our scoop shop on NW 23rd Street in Portland. This is no ordinary waffle cone. It's a flaky, buttery puff pastry shell stuffed with oozy Oaxacan cheese, and then griddled until it gets a caramelized crème brûlée crust.
Now, we know what you're thinking: Cheese...with ice cream?! It might not sound like something you'd want to eat, but trust us. Oaxacan cheese has a super mild flavor (kinda like mozzarella), which means it kinda goes with anything and everything, whether savory or sweet. Once you add in a sugared, crackly crust, you won't even remember what a regular waffle cone tastes like.
Right now the cheesy creation is only available at our Portland flagship, but stay tuned to see if it makes a debut in your area.
