My boyfriend and I have set a tradition since we’ve been dating. Every Sunday with go to a Soul Food restaurant and pig out! Today, we went to Home of Chicken and Waffles in Oakland. My, my, my was it good!
Chris (my boyfriend) had “Dale’s Choice” which came with six chicken strips, which he loves, a waffle, and yams. On the side, he threw in a small bowl of red beans and rice. That man can eat y’all! I couldn’t help my eyes from wandering to his plate, in my head hoping he wouldn’t eat it all! I snuck a bite of his waffle, which was delicious. It had the right amount of sweet and fluffy. He gave me a chicken strip, which tasted better without the BBQ sauce. And the red beans and rice were to die for, it had a kick of spice that made them just right. In his words, “they aren’t better than PopEyes though”. All in all, he had a great meal, and wants to try something different next time.
As for me, I got “Uncle Does Sampler”. You could choose from a variety of sides, I chose collard greens, macaroni & cheese, and yams, it also comes with cornbread. Being the food lover I am, I couldn’t miss out of the protein, which made me get a fried chicken breast on the side. The collard greens, mac & cheese, and yams don’t only look good on the plate, but they tasted like heaven! I literally cleaned my plate with my fork. The chicken wasn’t really my favorite thing, but it did the meal justice. The cornbread was a little dry for my liking, but that all was changed when I asked for some honey to glaze the top. And YES, I ate all this by myself, and still had some room to help Chris finish his plate. We love too eat!
Oh, and the best part: Bottomless Mimosas for only $7 with the meals EVERY Sunday from 10am-3pm! Needless to say, it was a very happy Soul Food Sunday for us. If y’all go or have been, let me know how you liked it!
