Waffle chicken is a combination of waffle and chicken, as you read it. It is said to be a "soul food" in the southern United States, where you eat plenty of maple syrup on top of this. The store, which opened in March 2014, seems to offer a menu centered on "American soul food," including this waffle chicken.
The store is about a 5-minute walk toward Miyamasuzaka. The landmark is Natural Lawson on the first floor.
Maple syrup was already on the table that was guided to the seat. Does that mean that so many people order waffle chicken?
The author, who visited during lunch time on weekdays, chose waffle chicken without hesitation from the delicious lunch menu. A set of 2 deli and drink is 1,000 yen (tax included).
A little over 5 minutes after ordering, the waffle chicken arrived. I could see the staff who brought it, but when I saw it again, it was a shocking visual . On top of a large round waffle, there are also 3 pieces of large chicken. As you can imagine, I hesitate to eat this now.
However, it's a waste to get cold. Sprinkle maple syrup, hoping it will be delicious. Oh, the syrup soaks into the chicken ...
First, take the chicken and cut it. A fragrant scent comes from the well-fried chicken, but as you bring it closer to your mouth, the maple scents softly and you feel anxious. Will these merge well?
Take the courage to put it in your mouth. Then, the spiciness is neutralized and mellow, and the maple scent surprisingly leaves a pleasant aftertaste. In Japan, it has a sweet and spicy seasoning like "teriyaki". This is good, beer must go on.
One waffle is a classic taste. Maple soaks into the slightly sweet dough, giving it a moist and smooth texture.
Now, the problem is from here. It's time to eat chicken and waffles together.
When I try to eat a bite ... It's not as shocking as I expected. It tastes like I've eaten somewhere. Wasn't there such a burger in the morning menu of a major fast food chain? Yes, eating chicken and waffles together makes me feel like I'm eating a hamburger or sandwich .
With only chicken and waffles, the feeling of eating them separately as "side dishes and dessert" cannot be wiped out. However, the presence of maple syrup creates a sense of unity between the two. Maple syrup acts as a strong adhesive.
By the way, it was better to take the plunge and sprinkle a lot of maple syrup . At first, I hesitated and spent a little time, but in the end, I added many times to finish the meal, so please don't hesitate. I don't want to think about the calorie intake, but it was a lunch full of power.
If you look back on it, you can see how to combine meat, eggs, and sweet dough in "meal pancakes" and "meal French toast." It can't be wrong. Of course, you will have different tastes.
It is unexpectedly difficult to bring chicken and waffles to your mouth, so it is recommended to eat each one alternately. You can only sprinkle maple syrup on the waffles. I want you to enjoy yourself while checking your own balance.
