Gawkman and Kayn venture to restaurant with a bizarre food combination: chicken and waffles. What's next, BACON AND ICE CREAM? Mmmmmm.... bacon lard swirl...
There's a wonderful thing about chicken and waffles. One's chicken, and the other is a waffle.
And ya know what? They taste good together.
In an effort to make Tha Boy jealous with envy and or rage, Kayn and myself decided to go check the place out. No longer would HE be the exclusive tryer of terrible food combinations.
So, we got there, and noticed how awesome the logo of the place is. It's a chicken with a chain wallet with his arms folded. So intense. The place had already earned my approval.
We walked in, and sat down and were given a menu. The menu consisted of a bunch of different combination plates, which mainly consisted of... *gasp*... chicken and waffles. I was still in denial that they would serve chicken and a waffle on the same plate, so my brain still was arguing that it was some sort of bizarre metaphor.
I ordered a standard plate that came with a waffle a piece of chicken (chicken thigh, to be exact). Kayn did the same.
After a reasonable amount of time, out came our plates. I stared in disbelief for a while. I spent a considerable amount of time observing that there was a piece of chicken on the same plate as my waffle.
Chicken... waffle... chicken... waffle... chicken... buttered waffle... chicken... buttered waffle... chicken... syrup-drenched buttered waffle... chicken...
So I took a bite of my waffle. Then another bite. Possibly the best waffle I'd ever had.
So I took a bite of chicken. Then another bite. Possibly the best piece of chicken I'd ever had.
Then I had a bite of waffle. Then I had a bite of chicken. Then another bite of waffle. Then another bite of chicken.
Somehow, my brain still didn't want to believe it... it had moved on to some theories about alternate realities or something, insisting that I was not truly perceiving this with my senses. Whatever, it was GOOD! On follow up visits to the place (which have become fairly frequent), I even ate a bite of chicken WITH my bite of waffle. And it was still excellent.
Gawkman observes the strange plate.
He contemplates his opinion after consumption.
Gawkman's approval is invoked.
After cleaning my plate, we ordered a piece of red velvet cake. It destroyed your mamma's dishes! In a good way!
So, in conclusion, if you're ever in downtown Phoenix, go to Lolo's Chicken and Waffles. You don't have to believe it to eat it. I don't.
