Chicken and waffles has finally made it’s way to Adelaide. It’s a dish I’ve been wanting to try after seeing it on Man vs. Food many years ago. There is just something about the combo that screams for it to work which piped my curiosity more. Finding out Nordburger does this for breakfast on weekends before 11 am, R was plotting his way down with C and I tagging along.
Fried chicken was crispy and brittle like good old KFC wicked wings (minus the fatty oil dripping down your hands). Mine was perfectly seasoned with a heavy pepper hand that I liked but C and R said theirs were very salty and struggled to eat it without water. Waffles were crispy and the combo of fried chicken and waffles work. This may be because waffles aren’t too sweet in the first place and acts kinda like bread. Topped with whipped maple butter that was fork licking good. Oh and let me not forget the generous sizes that are given for $9 – a whole giant waffle with 4 pieces of chicken. In the end we reckon we could have just ordered one and shared it between us 3. It was that epic.
Fried Chicken & Waffles ($9 – weekends only)
Would I get it again? Probably not. It was quite tasty and delicious but very heavy for something first thing in the morning (and just after a run). Would probably suit lunch and dinner time more. I was curious at their Japanese soft serve machine but sadly on the day we went, the power went out so maybe for another excuse to visit.
