Oxford American - Dame's Chicken and Waffles

"Eating chicken and waffles is like this: the sweet you want, the savory you want, all at once. Eating Dame’s chicken and waffles is like this: perfectly fried chicken. A light breading—flavorful, crispy. Underneath, a deep-pocketed Belgian waffle, warm in the center, sweet...The shmear acts as a lubricant between the chicken and the waffle, adding a layer of moisture that seeps down into the waffle’s pockets and coats the fried chicken. Sometimes flavored syrups are drizzled on top of the chicken."
