I like this answer, and will award it the bounty, since it comes the closest (in meaning) to the quote whose attribution I was seeking.

comment “Aztec Diamond” analogue for Square-Octagon graph.
I assume that they turn out to be something quite similar to the "fortress graphs" described for instance in arxiv.org/abs/math/0111034 (see the picture on page 13 and take the dual graph). These graphs are (under my way of thinking) the analogue of the Aztec diamond for the square-octagon graph. But I haven't read Speyer's paper in a while, so it could be that his construction goes down a different road and ends up somewhere else.

Not what I need (though it's a good one).
