Evviva’s taking it way downtown with funkalicious chicken ‘n waffles!

So, we’re hanging out at Evivva, this funky little joint that just opened up on Lower Simcoe Street, just a Jose Bautista batflip away from where the Blue Jays play. But don’t even think about coming here after the game—unless it’s a matinee. They’re only open for breakfast ‘n lunch, bro!

Man, this place has everything—chili chicken, Philly cheesesteak, a burger topped with bacon, egg ‘n Havarti…oh yeah, and fried chicken ‘n waffles:

OK, let’s break it down. You’ve got the super-crispy, chicken-finger-tender breast strips, deep-fried to perfection. The waffle is super-fluffy, soaks up the syrup like Guy Lafleur at a sugar shack (bellbottoms not included), with some sour cream and hot sauce served up on the side. I know what you’re thinking—who puts sour cream on waffles!?—but it actually mixes nicely with the chicken, adding a cool creaminess to the dish.

My only complaint is that they could fit another 3-4 waffles on this super-sized plate. I wouldda finished them, too…and still had room for a dugout dog, dude!
