The morning after my Tahoe snowboarding trip I figured would be the best day to start my Chicken and Challenge. I called my best friend David to have breakfast with me before we worked a 1 pm that day. I told him that we’d share the massive concoction because I knew if I were to finish it alone, work would be filled with me in food coma.
We enter the building on the corner of 1st ave and Clement with the red awning that said EATS. I had been there once before on a first date and of course David and I sit in the exact same place. I also so that this Eats also has a Waffle Bacon, where the waffle is made with slices of bacon in it. Of course I thought it would be a genius Idea to order the Chicken and waffles with a bacon waffle substitition and 20 mintues later and our food wasn’t out she comes out with the bad news. Either I wait till they fix the waffle maker to get the bacon in it or I get a regular waffle and eat now. Of course I eat now.
-I feel that it was fate telling me to NOT mess with the menu and just order as is.
In my research to find the best Chicken and Waffles joint in the Bay Area I compiled a list of all the places and what the menu description was.
50 Clement Street St
“All Natural Chicken & Homemade Buttermilk Waffle panko crusted fried chicken breast topped with a mushroom medley gravy served with homemade buttermilk waffles topped with honey butter 11.95”
Besides that fact that the order came super hot and burned the roof of my mouth, the panko crusted fried chicken topped with the mushroom medley gravy was super delicious. It topped off the ultimate sweet and savory aspect. People eat their chicken and waffles separately, but I eat it on top of each other. As I cut through the tender fried chicken on top of the fluffy yet crispy belgium waffle two friendly women talked to me about my dish. As I raved about the concept of Chicken and waffles, she talked about her experience in LA with Roscoes a long time ago. I explained how I only like belgium waffle and no skinny waffles and insisted for her to order Chicken and Waffles herself.
The best part of dish was the mushroom gravy, I never thought to add another piece to this crazy dish but it worked great. When I ran out of gravy and waffle and all I had was fried chicken, I had to order another waffle. So I used their house maple and shared the rest with David. Over-all I was very impressed with EATS on Clement. The service and atmosphere was great and the Chicken and Waffles were something else.
I wonder: will every place I go to, will I run out of waffle and have a ton of fried chicken left over?
