When it comes to the eats scene, Florida is a haven of tastes. From exotic bites to more classic digs, there's a little bit of something for every type of foodie in your friend group. If you've been looking for a new place to chow down with your besties, you'll want to add Tampa restaurant Fork & Hen and their picture-perfect platters to your list.
Located within The Hall on Franklin's food hall downtown, Fork & Hen serves up your classic fried chicken and American comfort foods. But don't worry vegetarians, they have a delicious salad on the menu for you too.
From crispy and hot fried chicken sandwiches to garlic parm fries, country mac n' cheese with a homemade cheddar cheese sauce, cornbread, and juicy burgs, your taste buds are in for an adventure here.
But it's the restaurants F&H Platter that really takes your chicken and waffles experience to the next level, giving you a little taste of multiple menu items that's perfect for sharing with your crew.
The massive $56 platter "feeds four well" according to the menu, including an array of chicken tendies, Belgium waffles, waffle fries, as well as the country mac and cheese. Splitting the cost with friends will run you about $14 each.
It also comes with a whole line up of delectable dipping sauces including honey chipotle, curry honey mustard, BBQ, and Tampa Hot.
Fork & Hen representative, Mark Traugutt, told Narcity that everything on the platter is able to be subbed with something else from the menu; a price adjustment would be made accordingly. So if you wanted chicken sammies instead of tenders or mac n' cheese, you could totally do that!
Aside from the delicious bites, The Hall on Franklin's atmosphere is relaxed with a touch of upscale. You can choose to dine inside or take your eats outdoors to hangout street-side. They're also now available on Uber Eats if you're within the delivery radius.
Whether you want to share your platter with friends or keep it all to yourself, you're in for a mouthwatering ride at Fork & Hen.
