Chicken and waffles. I can’t say that I am a connoisseur of the dish, but I can certainly say that I’ve traveled a distance to try some of the more popular renditions, along with conducting important business of course. In Atlanta, there was Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles and, in LA, there was Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles. (Not that this matters, but I crowned Gladys Knight’s the winner.) Since jumping to the other side, I have been on the lookout for a meat-free edition of the dish. After years of looking, I finally stumbled across Daya‘s Chicken (Seitan) and Waffles brunch item, and yes, it was so worth the wait.
There’s a new vegan restaurant in town, and it is so good! I am both happy and excited to introduce to you Daya, which is described as “an upscale, 100% plant based restaurant.” Located in the city of Winter Park, I can tell you that Daya is definitely different from your ordinary vegan restaurant. From the beautiful layout and design of the restaurant to the attention paid to the plating of the food, I am quite excited to see Daya flourish into Central Florida’s new “it” place for meat-free dining.
This black-eyed peas recipe from Post Punk Kitchen is the perfect way to start the new year!
“Vegan alfredo sauce.” The moment my colleague and friend nonchalantly mentioned that this was, in fact, a real thing, my mind was blown.
I am not much of a fan of ice cream. Since being diagnosed as lactose intolerant a number of years ago, I kicked the habit of eating the stuff and for years had convinced myself that I didn’t like it. Who was I fooling? After years of being off the wagon, a taste of So Delicious’ take on ice cream got me hooked… again.
