Chicken 'N Waffles ... how best to eat it?

ipsedixit | Sep 14, 201004:42 PM     12

Two questions -- one is borne of etiquette, the other is motivated by maximizing the experience.

So bear with me, please.

As to the first, is it more proper to use knife and fork, or to attack the dish with bare hands? Or a combination of both?

On the second question, what's the best way to maximze the sweet and savory potential this dish has to offer?

In other words, do you somehow combine the fried chicken with the waffle and syrup and butter in each bite? Do you drizzle the syrup on both the chicken and waffle? What about the butter? Do you ever put the chicken on top of the waffle so that it can rest to allow some of that good salty grease to permeate those nooks and crannies in the waffle?

Or is it better to consume each (chicken and waffle) separately? Because the joy is just having both dishes at the same meal (not necessarily with each mouthful).

What about gravy? Is it preferrable to syrup? Or should it be in addition to syrup?
