Marilyn, Alice, and I meet up every year around Christmas time to catch up on the year’s goings bys and events. This year, we were a little late and ended up meeting up in January, but no worries, it was still really nice to catch up.
We had brunch at Smash Kitchen & Bar, a place I’ve visited before for a prix fixe lunch with a friend. They are a really nice casual restaurant to visit for a meal with your friends, dates, or even a family outing.
On this visit, we all ended up ordering the Chicken & Waffles that they had on their brunch menu (they have brunch on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.). There were a lot of people here and if we didn’t arrive at 11:40 a.m. or so, we would have had to wait for a table. They were packed here! It was lively and a great environment to dine in on a cold winter’s morning.
The three plates of Chicken & Waffles arrived very quickly after we had placed the order with our server. It was a nice big stack of two deep fried chicken steaks on a waffle with some vanilla butter and spicy citrus maple syrup on it. It was a beautiful presentation! There were also some fruits on a stick on the side.
I remember having a really delicious chicken & waffle at Inspire Restaurant. I was very pleased to see that Smash Kitchen & Bar also makes Their Chicken & Waffles very deliciously too! At first, I found that the spicy citrus maple syrup was a little too sweet for me; it was definitely a little citrus-y — you could tell that there was some kind of orange taste in the syrup. But afterwards, I really appreciated the crispy and tender fried chicken. The waffle was not bad either.
Thanks to my subscription to entertainment.com, we were able to get one free plate of chicken & waffles (the coupon offered one free lunch entree after getting the first one). Yay! I love deals on food. 🙂
We had a really good chat and surmising over what happened in 2015. We always end up with the same aspirations each time we depart. Cheers to a prosperous, happy, healthy, and most loving 2016 for all of us! (Also, we realized that it was the 10th anniversary of when we started this tradition! :O )
