Realistically, chicken and waffles is a weird combo. It's sweet but savoury, but is also one of the best meals to indulge in. It shouldn't work, but it does and thank the heavens for that.
Does anyone even order eggs and bacon anymore? When you have amazing brunch dishes (or all day dishes) like chicken and waffles or eggs Benedict to choose from, there is no reason to opt for the boring and probably healthier dish. No reason at all.
If you've never tried chicken and waffles for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you may want to get on that. You're missing out on a huge part of life. So here are 7 best Ottawa places to get some unreal chicken and waffles:
The King Eddy // 45 Clarence Street
Ottawa's famous fried chicken restaurant. The King Eddy knows what they're doing when it comes to fried chicken, and pair that with waffles and your mind is completely blown. They also serve maple whiskey gravy, which on it's own sounds unreal.
Pressed // 750 Gladstone Avenue
The New South waffle at Pressed is everything you need and more. It includes smoked chicken fritters, baked berry-ginger compote, fresh maple syrup and is tied together with Frank's red hot sauce. This chicken paired with a delicious buttery waffle will definitely cure all of your emotional needs.
Bowman's Bar & Grill // 1170 Carling Avenue
This chicken and waffle dish will make your tastebuds so incredibly happy. First of all, the waffle is white hominy and smoked cheddar flavoured. Yes please. And placed on top is a buttermilk marinated chicken thigh. They spice it up by adding jalapeños and a spiced maple syrup to dip.
Flapjack's Canadian Diner // 354a Preston Street
Flapjack's does the original chicken and waffle dish to perfection. Their simple dish includes crispy fried chicken tenders and buttermilk waffles with maple syrup, but even just looking at that picture makes my mouth water.
St. Louis Bar and Grill // Multiple Locations
It doesn't get much better than this. St. Louis Bar and Grill offers chicken and waffles in a sandwich form, which includes two Belgian waffles, hand breaded chicken tenders which is topped with garlic dill sauce and Sriracha. If you're looking for a sweet version of chicken & waffles, you won't find it here!
