Sunday Brunch: Chicken and Waffles Edition

Share This Post:

In the breakfast battle between waffles, french toast and pancakes, I appreciate each of them in that order. I will pick waffles over any breakfast food (aside from mimosas, if you want to count that as a food).

Waffles are just the best – like, who doesn’t like a food that has little compartments to hold on to your syrup and butter? Who also doesn’t like savory chicken and sweet waffles?

I had the pleasure of having a brunch at Grand Lux recently, and I was in high anticipation of of trying their chicken and waffles. It was on my mind all week as I was stacking my plates with greens to prepare for this breakfast.

 

I have always been a fan of Grand Lux, but I truly never thought about it as a brunch destination. The chicken and waffles really changed my mindset. Just imagine an extremely flavorfully spiced, crunchy coated chicken chicken strips, topped with pecans, powdered sugar, and a maple butter sauce that you get to drizzle all over on top of a fluffy, toasted Belgian-style waffle.

Yum.

Something else that I love is that the Grand Lux in my area recently started taking reservations, so you can now hang out with a reasonable wait and get this brunch!

The restaurant has some other scrumptious looking weekend brunch items, so Bryan and I will be back!

As you all know, I’m a huge fan of brunch, but I want to know where your favorite spots are! Leave a comment below and let me know.

 

*as a disclosure, Grand Lux did comp a portion of my meal, but as you guys know, I never write about anything I don’t truly enjoy and can’t talk about honestly. My review would still be 100% the same if I purchased my brunch!
