A friend called me the other day and said how about checking out FATS Chicken and Waffles for lunch? Great idea. Walking a few blocks on a sunny day and having a tasty lunch at a very reasonable price is perfect. I ordered the catfish sandwich with a side of fries and she had the fried green tomato sandwich with a side of okra. We shared the generous sides and the sandwiches were a nice lunchtime size. The catfish was delicious with a light batter. Both sandwiches should satisfy non-meat eaters.
When FATS opened, I will admit that fried chicken and waffles were not on my culinary radar. Several months ago, some former neighbors were visiting Seattle. They knew all about chicken and waffles and we invited them to try the new restaurant in their old neighborhood. On that visit, we ordered shrimp and grits, red beans and rice, chicken and waffles, assorted sides and a few beers. All very good.
It is fun to have another eating choice in the neighborhood. And a special thank you to FATS for touching up the great MLK JR Mural! We’ll be back!
