I say, "Chicken & Waffles!" You say, "What?!" That's the usual response I get when I mention what is one of the more unusual food pairings to come along in recent years. Viewed by some merely as a passing food fad, the combination of crispy fried chicken alongside a sweet, syrupy waffle, has taken the comfort-food world by storm and is a phenomenon that's obviously here to stay.
On Saturday Morning Around 9:00 am Governor Quinn stopped in to dine at Chicago's Home Of Chicken & Waffles Oak Park Location. As he sat down to place his order his security sat on the opposite side of the room just across from his booth. I stopped to ask him what made him stop in to dine with us.
Perhaps it’s due to the odd preference for white food (white bread, white meat, marshmallow Fluff), or perhaps buckwheat fell out of favor because people just don’t like the taste (unlikely), but whatever the cause, it’s now very hard to get a pancake or waffle made of buckwheat.
