Southern Kin Cookhouse

Assembly Row, 500 Assembly Row | Somerville, MA | 02145 | Menu

I have heard a lot about Southern Kin in Assembly Row. I finally had the chance to make it to this restaurant for a friend's brunch birthday party {the best kind of brunch!}.

When I saw chicken 'n waffles on the menu, I knew immediately what I was going to get. 1. I'm at a Southern restaurant and 2. CHICKEN 'N WAFFLES. So far, this is the best chicken 'n waffles I've had. Let me tell you a little about this ahhhhhmazing plate of food.

For starters, the waffle is a cheddar-chive waffle. I was a little worried the waffle would be too chive-y, but it did not have as much chive as I thought. Which was great for me as I don't like a lot of chives. There were three delicious pieces of perfectly fried chicken. They pretty much melted in your mouth. This was topped with Fresno peppers and paired with Fresno pepper-maple syrup and Louisiana honey-hot pepper sauce on the side. I wasn't sure if I was going to like the syrup or pepper sauce as I'm not a spicy person {at all!}, but to my surprise, it was very tasty. I only put a very minimal amount on my chicken 'n waffles, but it was something different.

There were other items on the menu that looked delicious as well. I would love to go back to try the Graceland griddle cakes, country fried chicken 'n eggs, and the malted buttermilk waffle. It all looked so tasty. I would recommend trying chicken 'n waffles here if you have ever wanted to try it.
