Fried chicken and waffle at Lucky's Oh my!
So last night I head into Luckys to have a burger or something and a beer or two. I see that on the new menu they have fried chicken and a waffle. Being a true southerner I had to order it.
OH MY! it was beyond good. The chicken was perfectly moist and flavourful. the fried skin was seasoned with a very corn flake like breading and wonderful herbs with a little almost chili kick to it. The waffle was very nice, a little crispy but not over cooked, however it could have been a bit warmer.
The lavender maple syrup was a great addition and a great way to calm the spice of the chicken.
there was mashed potato on the plate as well, however I did not need that as I ate every bite of the chicken and waffle.
It was amazing! and I may even return tonight for another one!
Truly a dish that makes you proud to be an American. First time I had it was in NYC and it was served with both gravy and syrup. Awesome; I fell in love. Last time I had it was at Neptune, pre-Nevins' departure, and it came with fig syrup. Lavender sounds like a neat contrast too.
Lucky's always was way better than it had to be.
