Chicken vindaloo – Hyderabadi Biryani Corner

This was good, but not as good as their tikka masala. This had a sweeter flavor and wasn’t as spicy.


Chicken fried soul sandwich – Soul Groove

Chicken fried soul sandwich - Soul Groove
Bacon-wrapped and buttermilk battered chicken breast, fried and served between maple infused waffles with jalapeño cole slaw and Jay’s spicy maple barbecue sauce. $8
Soul Groove, San Francisco CA

The chicken was really flavorful and juicy. So juicy that it was pretty drippy, but I liked it! The description is very misleading though since there are no waffles to be seen, just a regular bun. Very odd! Or maybe they gave me the wrong sandwich, but all of their sandwiches indicate waffles(!).

Chicken pot pie – The Grove

Chicken pot pie - The Grove
House-roasted chicken breast, carrots, peas, topped with savory oregano pastry crust. $12.50
The Grove, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this was tasty and comforting! I just wish that the bottom also had pastry crust because that’s some of the most delicious parts of a chicken pot pie – the broth soaked, buttery crust on the bottom!

Perfect dome of pastry!

Chicken and waffles sandwich – The Wine Kitchen

Chicken and waffles sandwich - The Wine Kitchen
Boneless leg and thigh, wilted kale, buttermilk waffle, bacon jam. $14
The Wine Kitchen, Leesburg VA

This dish was a major fail! The waffles were so crumbly that they had no chance to stay intact with the fried chicken and the wilted kale. The kale was actually pretty tough so it wasn’t an easy green to put in a “sandwich” in the first place. The chicken was also pretty greasy. I definitely had diner’s remorse.
