STILLWATER, OK - When Kathleen Oliviers moved from Belgium to Stillwater, she decided to bring a staple of her country with her.
Stillwaffles brought something different to Stillwater’s selection of food truck options when it opened for business on Saturday. The new food truck will serve its customers authentic Belgian waffles.
Her business brought a unique option to Stillwater’s food scene, Oliviers said.
“It’s a new product for the United States, and a new product for Stillwater,” she said. “It’s all new.”
The waffles aren’t like the ones you would eat at breakfast, said Gregory Dwil, Olivier’s husband and business partner. They’re completely different from the American version.
“The (waffles) people mostly know from hotels is a Brussels waffle,” he said. “Brussels waffle is very rectangular, and you just serve it with whipped cream or powdered sugar. These are liege waffles, which are a little thicker.”
Oliviers says the secret to her waffles lays in the special sugar she uses. It’s unique to her hometown of Tienen, Belgium.
“The thing that makes them so good is the pearl sugar we use,” Oliviers said. “No one else in the world makes it. We have to order in online. It caramelizes on the waffle in the waffle iron.”
