Best Montreal Fried Chicken & Waffles
A match made in heaven.
When it comes to greasy-meaty-carb filled goodness, chicken and waffles reigns supreme. A classic Southern dish, C&W can be found throughout the city of Montreal, in many shapes and forms. If you've had chicken and waffles you know what I'm saying. If you haven't, read on to find out where to get them in your face right now.
Le Gros Jambon(286 Notre Dame Street W)Don't think Old Montreal is too classy for a southern classic. With a crispy batter and a meaty interior, Le Gros Jambon does a great looking C&W that's a feast for the eyes and the tongue.
Prohibition Montréal(5674 Avenue de Monkland)Switch things up at Prohibition where they perfectly pair crisp chicken with fluffy challah French toast, and check in for a free pretzel, cookie or coffee to boot!
Fabergé(25 Avenue Fairmount W)Fabergé lists their C&W dish on the lunch menu, so you best not miss it. Don't be fooled though, served alongside homefries and fruit, it makes the perfect breakfast/brunch choice.
The Sparrow / Le Moineau(5322 Boul. St-Laurent)We've already covered how great the Sparrow is at brunch, and they maintain that rep with their buttermilk C&W. Making many fried golden nuggets rather than a huge chunk, the dish looks kind of small but don't be fooled by the photo, it's incredibly filling!
Nouveau Palais281 Bernard WWeekend-only brunch at Nouveau Palais is made extra special for their infamous chicken and waffles. This diner-bar does it right, with big pieces of crispy fried chicken and basic but delicious waffles.
SuWu 3581 St. LaurentChanging up the traditional C&W, SuWu does their version with thick cut french toast and big pieces of boneless fried chicken all topped with blueberry sauce. Sounds strange but my goodness does it work.
Deville Diner Bar1425 StanleyWant all the deliciousness of chicken and waffles with slightly less guilt? Try out Deville Diner Bar's 'Southern Fried Chicken Salad, a heaping bowl of mixed greens and veggies, fried buttermilk chicken crispers, bacon, shredded cheese, and sweet waffle croutons all covered in a bourbon pear dressing. Like I said, you'll only feel slightly less guilty.
