Just over a week ago, I was on a “mini vacation” from work where I finally got the chance to catch up with some friends over good food. Initially the plan was to go get waffles, however, little did we know, the waffle place we planned on going to was closed at 6 pm. Disappointing. However, we chose the next best option. Chicken and waffles.
To the left, lo and behold, the holy grail of chicken and waffles brought to you by Harlem Restaurant. They have two locations, the one we went to was on 745 Queen St. West and the other one is located at 67 Richmond St. East. The ambience on Queen West was great, with very attentive and patient servers. But above all, the food was amazing. The dish came with three sauces: maple syrup for the waffles, a gravy and a scotch-bonnet-coriander-lime syrup which was a bit too spicy for my liking.
There were a bunch of other things like the jerk chicken and the jambalaya that I was considering trying… however, I was already dead set on getting the chicken and waffles so I couldn’t not get them.
I would love to make another visit to Harlem in the near future to try out the other dishes, which I am sure would not disappoint!
