Sweet & Meat...mmmm yeah~

Frexitarian | Dec 8, 201110:35 PM

Yeah, I've been persecuted for my love for the sweet and meaty combo. Roscoe's is it's own thing. It's not fancy and just because it's in "Pasadena" it doesn't mean it's not "real" either. (some people just get things so mixed up) - - - Roscoe's is pretty pricey. Actually, I don't think I've been to a "soul-food" joint, that wasn't pricey...can someone answer THAT question for me? Anyhow, I've been hittin' Roscoe's way back when it WAS in a highly black and brown populated area of Pasadena (north of the 210). The chicken has always been so salty for me. Then again...MOST soul-food joints are too salty for me anyhow. I could hang but dang...I needs me a pitcher of water every time. The waffles are in a class of their own. Some waffle snobs have dissed Roscoe's waffles yet my buddy's grandmother who is from the south likes them a lot. Not to say that her stamp of approval means that it's the "real deal" or anything...just pointing out that the waffles are Roscoe's and Roscoe's alone. To me...
"their" chicken goes well with "their" waffles. They do a good job marrying. you could not match a "Manekan" waffle with Roscoe way. Even though Manekan is freaking delicious. So, you really just have to try Roscoe's to see if your palate likes it or not. IF you do...great! If not...oh well. Onto the next sweet and savory dish! I recommend, Philippine Pan de Sal & sweet maiz ice cream! (bread roll & corn ice cream)
