Chicken & Waffles: It’s What’s for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner in Metro D

By: Amber Ogden | October 30, 2015

This weekend will be one of many tricks and treats, so treat yourself to something sweet and savory! For some mysterious reason, the sweet and savory combination of chicken and waffles totally works. It’s also a dish that works for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

When you crave sweet and savory, head to one of the following restaurants for a plate of chicken and waffles:

Kuzzo’s Chicken and Waffles of Detroit offers plenty of waffle combinations, including The First Lady (a chicken breast served atop a waffle) and Tender Love (three battered chicken tenders with a waffle).

If you really want comfort, go for Big Red, a red velvet waffle served with three chicken wings or tenders, your choice of side and bourbon maple syrup.

New Center Eatery, also of Detroit, is known for its many chicken and waffle combos, which is why you can order a plate for just $5 between the hours of 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. daily.

While you can always go for the original, try The Grandma Hudson (an apple and caramel-infused waffle, topped with caramel sauce and chicken breast strips) or The Auntie Jean (a banana-flavored waffle, infused with bananas and toasted walnuts, topped with butter, strawberries and chicken breast strips).

Bastone Brewery, located in Royal Oak, serves up a savory chicken and waffle option on its dinner menu. Leuven Waffle is an herbed Belgian waffle topped with pan-seared chicken, leeks and bell peppers, cooked in a sour cream and white wine sauce.

While it doesn’t fall into the chicken and waffles category, Bastone also serves a dish called Namur Waffle, a chive and horseradish waffle, topped with beef tenderloin, mushrooms and tomatoes.

Think of both as the traditional chicken and waffles’ sophisticated relative.

Toasted Oak Grill & Market of Novi offers chicken and waffles on its brunch menu. The dish consists of a cornbread waffle, buttermilk fried chicken and not just any ordinary syrup: New Holland’s Zeppelin Bend whisky maple syrup.

Brunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Chicken and waffles can be simple, but the dish has many different variations. Whichever one fits your fancy, enjoy it in the D!
