REAL Belgian waffles VS. American Belgian Waffles

Hi hounds!

I'll go ahead and print this thread in the LA and International boards, and the Uberhounds can delete the one they feel is appropriate.

I returned from a trip to Belgium and The Netherlands about a month ago. I tried my first *real* Belgian waffle which, to the uninitiated, is a much different animal than the American/Belgian counterpart:

1) They are rectangular, slightly larger than a McDonalds hash brown and twice as thick (but much thinner than what Americans get at an IHOP or something

2) The flavor is much different-- they are sweet and soft on the inside, with a crunchy layer outside. They are delicious and sweet even without any topping.

3) They are not considered a breakfast food-- more of an afternoon snack

So my question to you is this-- do you know a) the difference in recipies between the authentic and American and b) do you know of any places in Los Angeles where I could find these authentically made?
