When I heard there was a new breakfast eatery in town, I just had to check it out. Pancakes and Waffles is located in the City Square Shopping Center on Dillingham Blvd. We decided to check it out on a Sunday afternoon at 1 pm - one hour before closing.
My friend ordered the Vinha D'alhos (Portuguese meat dish) plate lunch ($7.95). The fried rice was $1.50 extra. I didn't try this, but DH said it was dry. I sampled some of the fried rice - it was ok but nothing special.
Our other friend ordered the Eggs Benedict ($7.50). I did not try this one either since I am not a big fan of eggs benedict, but my friend seemed to like it.
Here's what I came for - the fried chicken and waffle plate ($7.95). I had read in the paper that the owner got the idea from Roscoe's, a famous restaurant in Los Angeles known for their fried chicken and waffle combos. Luck was again on our side because we got the last order of fried chicken. I asked for the gravy on the side and ended up not even touching it. I like my fried chicken without gravy and my pancakes with just butter and syrup. This plate comes with 3 huge pieces of fried chicken - a generous serving for one person. The fried chicken was moist and crispy. The waffle was also tasty.
