"You Got Chocolate In My Peanut Butter..."

Wowza. I started the week with so much to talk about, but the days got away from me --- filled with even more things to talk about!

We did indeed get into WICKED, a show that I have much to say about. But first-

History has given us a lot of great pairings.

Romeo and Juliet.

Lewis and Clark.

Laurel and Hardy.

Katee and Joshua.

And now, Chicken and Waffles.

You heard me right.


AND waffles.

Between the time of the WICKED lottery and the show itself, Catherine and I went to eat at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles.

I’ve known about this place since I did Act One in 2000, but never could quite get myself to believe that the combination of poultry and ridged pancakes was worth the bother. (There is typically a line out the door.)

But for an anniversary adventure – why not?

Never will I doubt again – the waffles are amazing!

Can’t be described, won’t even try. You have to experience it to understand.

When you go, you can try wrapping a bite of chicken in the waffle, but really the best experience is just to alternate bites.

So maybe the name should be changed to: Roscoe’s Chicken THEN Waffle. Then Chicken. Then Waffle. Then Chicken…

Just my thoughts,

Okay, so I rarely leave comments on blogs... this might be the second or third time ever in my case. Roscoe's is the reason why this is going down.

Anytime - in the sun, in the rain, in the morning, or out of a cold bucket - I will eat chicken and waffles with you, and everyone. Roscoe's makes the flowers grow, and the sun get up.

This stuff is soo good!

Nate and I were driving through Vegas and saw this cafe that claimed to be true Mississippi soul food. As a native, Nate had to test that claim - and when he saw chicken and waffles on the menu, he knew it was true.

Ah, chicken and waffles. Very few culinary delights can compare.

There's a second Roscoe's on Pico, just a couple of blocks west of La Brea.
