As fried chicken on waffles became popular in Toronto, I decided to try different ones to see which is the best! (Probably just an excuse for me to eat more fried chicken and waffles) I’ve been to Stockyard a while back before even knowing Fried chicken on waffles existed, and believe me, I was quite amazed. When I saw that BlogTO had come up with the top 10 Fried Chicken on Waffles list AND Stockyard wasn’t even on it, I thought to myself I had to try how good the other ones are. (You can see their list for Top 10 Fried Chicken and Waffles Here.) Now, let me begin with Harlem Underground, the one we picked out from the list.
On a Saturday, Melissa and I went on an adventure after a stressful week at work. We decided to go to Harlem Underground because it was close to Eatons and we wanted to go shopping after. My first impression of the restaurant was that I didn’t know what to think of it (not really an impression…sorry). The interior seemed like a mix of different things. What I thought was cool was the skeleton stools they had. (Not very comfortable to sit in, but definitely cool) We were both starving so we went straight to ordering. We ordered a drink, quesadillas, hummus dip and of course, Fried Chicken and Waffles.
Their menu was a music disc look-a-like! that’s fits their restaurant theme pretty nicely. They have bands that plays at their restaurants (I think every Wednesday) at night.
Here’s a selfie of me and Melissa!
Drinking during daylight usually isn’t my thing, but for the sake of trying a drink, I ordered this… a drink that I don’t remember the name of. (No, I didn’t forget because I drank too much!)
We were quite disappointed about the hummus dip because they ran out of avocado and without the avocado it’s really just a regular hummus dip. We still managed to finish a lot just because we were hungry! And I have to give them credits for the good-looking quesadillas… Even looking at it now (at 2am) I still want to take a big bite.
