Liege waffle, Volkswaffle

Volkswagon has come under fire lately for its “liar, liar pants on fire” approach to car emissions. The only controversy Volkswaffle, the Sacramento-based food truck, might incur would be thanks to the insane amounts of sugar and carbs it puts out into the world. There are fancy toppings—chocolate, ice cream, etc.—but the plain Liege waffle ($5) is the best. It's gigantic, made from imported dough studded with Belgian pearl sugar. You won't miss the syrup. The company's bright red truck makes its way around town and recently added a brick-and-mortar spot. 4140 Manzanita Ave in Carmichael,
