Chicken and Waffles

I cannot survive the mundane nature of day-to-day working life without a trip to look forward to. I am currently anticipating a trip to LA this April, during which my husband and I hope to take a "foodie tour" of the city. One of our planned stops: Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles.

I was introduced to this common Southern food combination recently at the local Sandra Dee’s restaurant. I initially found the idea of it bizarre, but once I tried that crispy, savory chicken with a piece of sweet waffle, I realized that just like chocolate-covered pretzels, the sweet and salty combination is as addictive as it is delicious. It is also supremely comforting food.

We are still working on developing our list, but the LA Farmer’s Market is another stop, where myriads of vendors offer their wares and one can taste a little bit of everything. Any other suggestions?


  1. They have a Lolo's Chicken & Waffles in phoenix & Scottsdale that I keep meaning to try. Your pic looks super tasty!
