Grand Bahamians are falling in love with the ‘Waff-Wich’ – one of the latest creations new to Sabor Restaurant & Bar in Freeport.

The waffle-inspired meal is the brainchild of Head Chef Emmanuel Smith, who said the concept was created with his customer’s taste buds in mind.

“The concept combined the culinary duo of Wine and Waffles with a dining experience featuring the best that Sabor has to offer on a Wednesday,” Smith said.

The popular restaurant and bar teamed up with Grand Bahama’s Chamber of Commerce (GBCC), to host the event last Wednesday.

“We decided to make it a Women’s event and play off the ‘W’ theme,” GBCC’s Permanent Secretary Mercynth Ferguson said.

“We knew it was a fun idea but were so pleased that so many working women wanted to attend.

“The idea of hosting right after work, on the beautiful floating dock was also key to the attendance and everyone knows Chef Emmanuel won’t disappoint.”


Chef Manny added that he is always striving for new and better concepts for their menu.

“I am a creative person. I am always thinking of new concepts for our menu, and thought why not showcase the Waffle craze and our floating dock which has become a hit with restaurant goers,” he said.

Adding to the night, the restaurant’s neighbor, Unexso Sun and Sea Outfitters, also held a fashion show for the guests.

Chamber members were offered special discount cards for the store as well as invites back to Sabor for a free glass of wine with their meal, for the summer.

“We are working on our next event,” said Smith.

“We want to keep pushing the ideas out and also introducing our venue to locals as well.”

Guests enjoyed tasty wine options, along with a variety of waffle dishes accompanied by seafood sauces, chicken, chickpea spreads as well as various nut toppings. In addition to the savory waffle options, the night offered dessert waffles too, with strawberries, chocolate syrup, cream spreads and more.
