If you're anything like us, you' spent the last month religiously watching Winslet in the HBO five-part miniseries Mildred Pierce. It's a story about mothers and daughters, betrayal, hot sex, the Depression, and a whole lot more, but since we're SFoodie, we were just as turned on by Mildred's pie-making and chicken and waffle restaurant. Every Sunday night for three weeks we craved her chicken and waffles.
The series came to a conclusion last Sunday, but our chicken and waffles craving was still in full force. Then yesterday through the Twitter grapevine, we caught word of chicken and waffles for lunch at La Victoria: Soul Cocina's Roger Feely was doing the chicken, Sour Flour's Danny Gabriner the waffles.
Wait, you say, wasn't Soul Cocina's Roger Feely supposed to have left town by now? Almost. Feely's hitting Interstate 80 for Chicago tomorrow, says La Victoria's Jaime Maldonado, and he needed a little gas money. Yesterday's chicken and waffle lunch was really and truly Feely's last gasp in S.F., at least for now. You better believe we were there.
