I’m a fan of Chicken and Waffles. I remember the first time I’ve ever heard of Chicken and Waffles, I was in Atlanta as a teenager with my mom and sister in the early 90’s. We kept driving past Gladys Knight’s Chicken & Waffles restaurant. I was like what? So my mom let me out to go in to get an order. It turned out to be an upscale restaurant with mostly an African American clientele. So it probably seemed really weird for a young Asian boy to walk in with shorts and a t-shirt. I bet they thought I was lost.
Anyway, I wanted to try this Fried Chicken and Red Velvet Waffle ($20) that looks so good at SoCo in Clinton Hill. It’s an interesting take, because of the Red Velvet Waffle. Pretty good overall. It works. I guess it’s slightly sweeter than regular waffles. But I’m going to put syrup on it anyway. So it’s going to be sweet.
The Mardi Gras cocktail reminded me of those sweet bottled Looza fruit juices.
