Today's blog is inspired by DCFud, who wrote about Oohhs & Aahhs Restaurant on U Street. Apparently, O&A serves chicken and waffles.
Chicken and waffles? you ask incredulously. Chicken and waffles?!
Hey, don't knock it 'til you've tried it. I'm here to tell you, fried chicken and waffles is one fine culinary combination. The juxtaposition of savory and sweet is unsurpassed. If you like maple syrup on your bacon when you have waffles and bacon, this is just as good!
Case in point: one of my favorite restaurants in California is Roscoe's House of Chicken 'n Waffles. There use to be one in Oakland, but it shut its doors several years ago. If you want a fix of Roscoe's now, you have to go to Pasadena for the taste of southern fried chicken and secret recipe waffles that will leave you feeling like you've died and gone to heaven.
In addition to Oohhs & Aahhs in D.C., there's also Gladys Knight & Ron Winan's Chicken & Waffles up in Largo, MD. Had no idea she had a restaurant in this area; haven't been there, but I might have to check it out. I'll certainly be visiting Oohhs & Aahhs.
And now I'm hungry...
