Fried chicken and waffles. Two great tastes that taste great together. The locally owned Wild Chix & Waffles, which specializes in the savory and sweet combos, is now open in the Northcross Mall ( 7718 Burnet Road).
The menu at the all-day restaurant includes chicken and waffles (made with all-natural chicken); a waffle burger; bacon, egg and cheese waffle; sweet waffle with sliced bananas, Nutella and fresh whipped cream; and more. On the “healthier” side of things is a salad with chicken, avocado and goat cheese that comes with waffle cornbread croutons.
Wendy Wu, who is a co-founder and executive chef, says she was inspired to open the eclectic comfort food spot after leisurely visits to cafes in Paris. Wu partnered on the restaurant with the owners of Tatsu Ramen from Los Angeles.
Wild Chix & Waffles, which also serves beer and wine, is open 7 a.m. to midnight Sunday-Wednesday and 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. Thursday-Saturday.
