To a Southerner, chicken and waffles seems as natural a combo as peanut butter and jelly, rum and coke, Brad and Angelina. To the rest of us Yankees, it seems a little strange -- fried chicken is clearly a lunch/dinner/picnic food, while waffles are for breakfast or dessert. Right? A couple of Southern transplant friends assured me it was a winning combo.
For this week's Battle of the Dishes, we pitted the undefeated word-of-mouth chicken & waffles champ against a tasty breakfast joint that offers some of the best french toast in town.
