See how The Waffle Bus became one of the most popular food trucks in Houston

HOUSTON, Texas -- Born in the Philippines and raised in Houston, Texas, Phi Nguyen always dreamed of opening a restaurant.

In 2012, after leaving corporate life, Nguyen followed his entrepreneurial spirit and took the leap to open the first Waffle Bus food truck.

He traveled across the country on a quest for the perfect fried chicken and waffle recipe. Testing hundreds of methods to create each waffle from scratch, he created a proprietary recipe that keeps his waffles light and fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside.

One of the secrets: grinding his own flour. The Fryder is their unique take on the slider, which features crispy seasoned waffle fries used as the bun.
