I tried out Sweet Chick last night after seeing Solange Knowles sing at the Northside Festival/McCarren Park. I sat down at the bar and these two guys started to chat it up with me. I asked if they got the fried chicken and waffles. They didn’t. They were black and I wondered if I sounded racist with my assumption. Then I asked if they also came from the Solange show, which a lot of black folks were at. They didn’t. I was on a roll. Although I was curious why else they were hanging out in Williamsburg.
Anyway, my conversation ended when one of the dudes basically asked one of the bartenders if he was gay, because he liked him I guess. Not that I’m homophobic and didn’t want to talk to them. It just ended because my food came.
I got the Chicken and Waffles ($16) Classic. They also have other versions –Bacon & Cheddar, Rosemary & Mushroom and on the day’s special was General Tso’s Chicken and Waffles.
The Fried Chicken was great. The crust was crunchy and tasted kind of like Chinese Take-Out Fried Wings, which I like. I think the waffles were good, although I wasn’t really thinking about it when I ate it. But I remembered I really liked the whole thing mixed with syrup and the three butters (berry, chive and regular). And $3 cans of Genesee.
I know I’m on a low carb diet, but I guess I decided to wait until the next day to regret it.
