Bruxie, Orange County’s OG waffle house, has done it again and managed to bring Southern Californians another satisfying dish. This time we’re talking wild albacore tuna coated with melted cheddar cheese and stuffed in a waffle.
The new menu item is a collaboration with Oregon Seafoods, a company that prides itself on their line-caught Albacore off the coast of Oregon. For those of you familiar with Bruxie’s more indulgent dishes — the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Waffle Sandwich or S’Mores Waffle, to name a few — the Waffle Tuna Melt offers a surprising, if not refreshing, meal to dine on.
The waffle itself carries a light crisp, contrasting well with the soft creaminess of the tuna and cheddar. Overall, the waffle sandwich walks the fine line between leaving you satisfied and leaving you stuffed. Although, in our case, it was the latter, as we couldn’t help ourselves from getting seconds.
