Chicken And Waffles In Nyc
Your quest for soul food in New York City is not complete without a plate of fried chicken and waffles served with peaches and cream. Believe it or not, this well-known local cusine was once an unusual combination. The modern variants of this dish comes from the meal served in the African-American community in early 20th-century Harlem, New York. Today, New Yorkers are experimenting with waffles flavoured with bacon and cheddar, rosemary and mushrooms topped with exotic cranberry, herb, cinnamon-maple, or lemon-honey flavoured butters. The traditional fried chicken has been replaced with gourmet brick pressed chicken, buttermilk-fried chicken, and chicken smothered in gravy.
