Waffles with fried chicken is one of those dishes I watch people eat on cable TV and wonder how it'll taste like because it just looked so incredulously sinful and awesome both at once. I learnt that it came from America's southern states, and was considered a 'soul food'. They usually have it for breakfast as well, which is something we Singaporeans will never have, despite chomping down copious amounts of fried carrot cake and greasy bee hoon with chili. I wonder who's the first guy or gal who decided fried chicken is so delicious, it can be paired with just about anything, and what better than some fluffy waffles lying there on the breakfast table? [Turns out Wikipedia said it's the other way round -- chicken came before the egg (waffles)].
I finally got the try the Chicken and Waffles ($20) and it was as good as I'd imagine. Definitely recommend this, plus the cornbread ($6) to start. Also check out their 10am to 5pm Sunday boozy brunch -- pay $20 for all-you-can-drink mimosas for an hour!
The Beast definitely opened my eyes to what real Southern food is like without me having to take a 25 hour flight to wherever. I definitely recommend for anyone who's curious about this particular cuisine to check it out. It's already proving to be a hit among families and friends who are thronging the place during weekends, so get yourself a reservation and have some patience with the staff!
