A “Different” Take on Chicken & Waffles

Foodwise, Seattle does a lot of things right. Seafood, apples, cherries, Pike Place Market, etc… Good job, go Northwest, most of the time I am very proud of the culture here.

BUT! Sometimes I am just embarrassed for this city. Such an incident occurred today when I was out grabbing some groceries at the market near my office. The special of the day:

You guys. YOU GUYSSSSS. I know Seattle isn’t known for its amazing, authentic soul food, but COME ON. Chicken ‘n’ waffles, but the waffles are legit EGGOS wrapped in saran wrap?! A whole box of Eggos costs less than $6.99. This is total pandering to the “southern food trend,” and I don’t like it one bit.

    I am 100% OK with this.

    I’m not really an Eggo fan, but I would not turn one of those down.

    Haha! YOU GUYYYYSS! I think it’s funny (and yeah, probably delicious in a nasty way), BUT please also agree that it’s hella ghetto and not at all as tasty and exciting as true, real chicken & waffles.

    This is terrible. I hope it was at the IGA on 3rd and Pine, not like… Queen Anne’s Metropolitan Market.
