waffle buffet at the film factory
Buffet food isn't my cup of tea in general. Apart from food waste (which seems quite obvious with most buffets) I'm simply not a big enough eater to make justice to the spread or price. Today I made an exception to my no-buffet-rule.
For a waffle buffet - a pre-celebration of the Swedish Waffle Day on March 25 - at classic Swedish film grounds. Filmstaden Råsunda, the movie factory in the Stockholm suburbs built in 1919 where film legends like Great Garbo, Ingrid Bergman and Ingmar Bergman began their careers. On the grounds are several restaurants situated and one of them is Portvaktsstugan (The Door-keeper's cottage). A sweet 1920ies style cafe opened weekends only.
The perfect cosy corner for waffle eating, wouldn't you agree?
The buffet was lovely, cute and colourful but in the end I always chose fruit and whipped cream or ice cream for waffle topping (I wish they were vegan and non-dairy though). I'm just not keen on peanut butter and candy, caramel sauces and fluff, liquorice and marshmallows. Too sugary for me.
I had three waffles, all with bananas and a dollop of whipped cream. I tried to vary them a bit but I admit, not very successfully. They left me very full and even a bit nauseous. The reason for that is most likely the whipped cow's cream. By now I've realised that dairy just isn't good for me. Still, sometimes I can't resist.
But all and all, a lovely round off to the weekend. And awesome week.
