If I had my little way, I’d eat chicken ‘n waffles every day…

Now, I’ve had my fair share of chicken ‘n waffles, son. There was the eeny, meenie, sour creamy edition at Evviva, down by the ballpark, and some real-deal, Bomb.com ones from deep in the heart of Texas. But when I found out there was this funky little joint a couple blocks from the St. Lawrence Market that only serves chicken ‘n waffles, then I knew it had to be legit. Man, this place isn’t just good, it’s clucking good, bro! That’s right, I said clucking:


So we’re hanging out at Cluck Clucks on Princess Street, just off The Esplanade. This place actually has a basketball court in its backyard, so you can be all shooting some b-ball outside of the school, if ya smell what I’m cooking. You’ll probably need to go one-on-one with Bismack Biyombo after you’re done eating though, cuz this shit’s so bananas, and bananas are good!

Now, this scrumptious chicken breast sandwich will have ya singing Cluck Yeah! like Tim McGraw in a baseball cap, bro! The chicken is super-tender and juicy, and they’re serving it up inside a jalapeno cheddar waffle with some coleslaw and dill mayo. The waffle is nice ‘n fluffy, just a little sweet, with a little bit of kick from the jalaps. And the fries are nice ‘n crispy, with a spicy seasoning. But hey, that’s just a light snack in Flavourtown…

This chicken ‘n waffles is too legit to quit. The skin is crispy, the chicken falls apart like Henry Burris at halftime, and you’ve got more of that fluffy sweet waffle goodness, with maple syrup and Tabasco on top. I could eat six of these, and still have room for dessert!

Now, this is just what the doctor ordered. This Asian-style chicken taco is so funky it doesn’t even have a name yet! (Actually, it’s not even on the menu, but I happen to know a guy in the fried chicken department…) You’ve got some tender chicken tenders served up taco style with a sweet, spicy dressing, some Asian-style greens, and crispy, fried tortilla strips on top—cuz you know it ain’t a party till you invite crispy fried tortilla strips. This dish is a mouthful and a half, bro, but you can bet I shoved it all down my piehole, cuz we don’t need no knife and fork in Flavourtown!

Man, it’s a good thing I don’t eat here everyday, cuz then I’d be like 456 pounds…
