Did you say chicken and waffles?
That was my reaction when I first heard about the new cool spot in Braam, Mr Big Stuff. Okay here’s my best attempt at describing a bite of this old American favourite: Savoury, sweet, crunchy, soft soul hugging palette rousing wonder. Don’t knock it till you have tried it. After the first bite I couldn’t grasp why we haven’t been serving this combo all along. Chicken and waffles go together like Will and Jada, like Sundays and slippers, like Cream Soda and a hang over. [Speaking of which I’m sure this combo also makes for a kick-ass hangover buster.]
However, despite my excitement about it, chicken and waffles isn’t all they have at this branding-gasm of a spot. They also have breakfast and burgers and really great service. My friends had the eggs and waffles which they really enjoyed.
I did touch on this slightly by calling the place a branding-gasm but the general aesthetic really gave me Art-Director-Envy. It’s sure to make it onto the design blogs for it’s pastel and neutral understated style of vector illustration and simple typography. An all round well done!
I took a few pics on my phone so that my rant isn’t completely unsupported. 🙂
