Last night Kevin and I headed out to the Fashion Square Mall to meet up with Seth and Ana at a food truck bazaar sponsored by The Daily City. After being rained out last week, I was eager to get out to this one, and luckily the weather cooperated.
We got there early and I immediately knew which food truck I wanted to try: Melissa’s Chicken and Waffles. I ordered their original chicken and waffles topped with country gravy.
Thank goodness Kevin and I shared. It was a lot of really filling food. The waffle was very airy although not as crisp on the outside as a traditional Belgium waffle. The friend chicken tenders on top were really tender and juicy, and the breading was slightly spicy. It was a perfect flavor combination with the sweet waffle and gravy. It was sweet and salty, which means I was obsessed.
Kevin really enjoyed it too. We shared our own Lady and the Tramp moment.
Kevin also ordered a brisket sandwich from C&S Brisket Bus. He said the meat was really good, but the Texas toast it was served on was a little soggy.
Seth and Ana ordered some croquettes, which looked delicious. They also ordered some barbeque (not pictured), cake pops from The Batter Bowl and Jeremiah’s Italian Ice. The Italian ice looked so good that I knew I had to end my evening with some as well.
Seth and Ana also brought their puppies, Ryder and Rita, to share in the fun.
It was the perfect cap off to the weekend. Is it a bad sign that I’m already craving chicken and waffles again?
Have you ever had chicken and waffles? Would you ever want to try it?
What’s the oddest flavor combinations you’ve had or seen? One of the food trucks featured a bacon cheeseburger that had two Krispy Kreme donuts instead of the hamburger buns. I still need to muster up the strength to try it!
