I think I found my life’s passion… I think I’m going to become a chicken + waffles connoisseur.

At the beginning of March, a new chicken + waffles joint opened in Toronto right in the heart of Kensington Market. Let me introduce you to The DIRTYBIRD Chicken + Waffles, a restaurant specializing in Northern Fried Chicken. Located at 79 Kensington Avenue, the DIRTYBIRD brings you a southern staple with a Canadian twist — blending some form of maple into fried chicken.

The restaurant is small with limited seating, similar to most other restaurants in the area. My friend and I luckily managed to snag seats along the wall. I ordered the ODB — the original dirty bird — which was basically just a large piece of boneless meat on top of a waffle.

The waffle was quite delicious — light, fluffy, and warm with a hint of maple buttery goodness. The chicken was perfectly cooked — moist, juicy, and tender. I’m not sure what the red sauce on top was, but it was amazingly flavourful, the perfect combination of sweet and tangy. When you combine all these components into a single bite, it’s like heaven in your mouth.
