My First Wings & Waffle Experience
Today, we see wings and waffles on lots of menus.
I remember the first time my daughter mentioned the combination of fried chicken wings and breakfast waffles, years ago. I sort of gagged. It sounded like just another food gimmick.
Joining the Line in 2011
So we checked out the craze on a Sunday morning in March, 8 years ago. Both kids had come home from Austin, for the weekend. Our family of 4 headed into Houston to enjoy a food adventure! The line at The Breakfast Klub was crazy.
A Fun Wait
We were handed menus right away. The restaurant staff was very much used to dealing with crowds. All were in good spirits.
The cool spring weather made the wait tolerable. But the people watching, made the wait entertaining. Some came dressed in their Sunday Best. Others looked like they had rolled out of bed. But all seemed happy and eager to be there.
Our Breakfast Table
Once seated, we studied the menus with big cups of coffee. The youngins ordered Wings and Waffles, so I knew I'd get a bite. I went ahead and ordered the other dish The Klub is known for...Catfish and Grits!
Catfish & Grits
Waffles & Wings
So it's been 7 years and the breakfast combo is seen on more and more menus. It wasn't a short trend, afterall. They probably even serve wings and waffles at Denny's.
It might be time to head back for some Catfish and Grits!
The Dining Blog
This is a blog about Dining Adventures. Sometimes, I talk about food. Below, you can read how this started.
On July 4th 2011, I set a goal to try 50 culturally diverse restaurants in one year! (I knew that was possible, living in the Houston area) I spent the year pulling in friends and family to join me, on some unusual dining adventures. I met some curious people, tried some scary foods and explored places and cultures I never would have otherwise. Even though I met my goal, I learned too much to end my adventures in dining. I have continued blogging about memorable dining adventures of all kinds, near and far... and all the discoveries and funny things I've learned along the way!
Locations and types of dining adventures, are listed further down.
