Food Porn: How Sweet it is...Sweet Chick

Sweet Chick
164 Bedford Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11249
Located in Williamsburg

This is one of those restaurants that people rave about. We wanted to know for ourselves if the world has gone mad or if we were truly missing out. Siri told us that we have arrived at our final destination and it was a nice quaint location very reminiscent of the Lower East Side. We waited patiently for about a half and hour for a table that could accommodate our mini-food whore. Thank goodness for sweet potato puffs or we might not have made it.

We sat down and was greeted by our waitress who informed us of the daily specials. Did she just say buffalo chicken with blue cheese waffles?? What?!? (We had a Lil' John moment) we ordered our cocktails to take a little time to absorb all the wonderful food options. Note to selves: we must return because we want everything.

            

The cocktails were refreshing but we'll probably skip them next time around and opt for more food. Note to bartender, no one ever needs to drink Beefeater Gin. The cocktail above consisted of blueberries, elderflower, blackberries, ginger, and god awful beefeater gin. Put all those wonderful ingredients together and then you add the death blow. We swapped the gin with Brooklyn gin and we were back on track.

Now, let's get down to business. Decisions, decisions, decisions. According to everyone that walked by this place is the truth and worth the wait. We ordered the classic fried chicken & bacon cheddar waffles (there are tasty chunks of bacon baked into the waffle), buffalo chicken & blue cheese waffles, and house Mac-n-Cheese with a ritz cracker crust for the little one.





Our one main hang up would be that our food took about 40 minutes to arrive which was beyond excessive and the mini-food whore was starting to run out of steam. She expressed her frustration by banging loudly on the table with whatever she could get her hands on. It got so bad that she took to tapping the guests at the table behind us to ogle at their fried chicken. However, when the moment of truth happened upon us we were not disappointed and forgot all about the wait. The guest at the table behind us said it best, "this chicken is amazing." The pieces of chicken given were a little weird but it was so damn good that we would eat all of their chicken backs. We said mixed but again, the point we make is that if they only served the tips of chicken wings we would still take it. The buffalo chicken was covered in our favorite Frank's hot sauce so it was delicious. The waffle flavors were so pronounced and true to its name. You can taste all of the flavors. We must find our way back and eat through the extensive menu offerings.  They need a frequent eater's card. The Mac-n-Cheese was tasty but the noodles were far from al dente. Perhaps the chef knew that our mini-food whore was sans teeth and was cooking it to perfection just for her. The crust is what gives it a little texture but truth be told, we've had better.


All in all, we will be back very soon and often. This place is like a fat kids candy store but with chicken and so much more. Yes, it is that good. We haven't even made a dent in the menu YET. 

Stay tuned...
