Ten Best Chicken & Waffles in Miami

Everybody likes chicken and waffles. How could you not? This dish is having a moment, with good reason. The perfect combination of savory and sweet means you don't have to choose one over the other. In the past couple of years, we've seen this duo pop up in brunches all over town and even claim its proper place on several menus. The soul food staple has origins in Harlem circa 1938, when Wells Supper Club gave gospel singers and jazz performers who'd missed out on dinner but didn't quite want breakfast the best of both worlds.

Two regulars at Wells -- Herb Hudson and Gladys Knight -- couldn't get enough, so they decided to open institutions dedicated to the fried bird and square piece of dough. If you've been to L.A or Atlanta, you know that ordering chicken and waffles is a religious affair. At Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles in Hollywood, the name says it all. On the East Coast, Gladys and Ron's Chicken and Waffles boasts a line out the door every day beginning at 9 a.m.

Miami isn't so far behind. Lines out the door at a few places can be attributed to chicken and waffles. What follows are the top ten places where sweet meets savory.

Everything you thought you knew about chicken and waffles gets tried and tested at Josh's charming delicatessen. He doesn't always serve the chicken salad and waffles, but when he does, make sure to be there. Picture this: Josh's chicken salad balled up and fried into a type of croqueta -- one giant croqueta. And Josh makes it by rendering foie gras before tossing in the rest of the mix-ins to his chicken salad. As if that's not enough, there's the syrup, which is like a jalapeño jelly. Believe it.

Why yes, that is a honeycomb with a colossal dollop of ricotta atop fried chicken. The Mondrian's brunch is dubbed "Dig In" for a reason -- because that's exactly what you'll want to do with the chicken and waffles. This dish is almost too pretty to eat (almost). The chicken is fried in harissa buttermilk so it's extra-buttery and juicy. If bears ate brunch, this would be their go-to. And the best thing is brunch comes a day early, on Saturday (no Sunday brunch here). That just means you can have 'em here Saturday and elsewhere Sunday. Boom.
