This chicken and waffles dish didn’t become a crowd-pleaser for its restraint. Not only is the roasted chicken breast deep-fried, but South Side also takes a cooked Belgian waffle and fries it for good measure. “We sell about 150-200 in a weekend,” says owner Robert Delozier. The finished tower of waffles is sweetened with cinnamon butter, maple syrup, powdered sugar, and a kick of Thai Sriracha. According to Delozier, “the waffles are more like a funnel cake—crispy on the outside and light and airy in the center.” southsidecleveland.com
