Archana’s First Time at Roscoe’s

Over the weekend, many of my friends from undergrad who now live far away from Los Angeles returned for their first homecoming.  Of course, along with spending time with everyone, the number one priority was to stop at all of the best local eats, which obviously included the legendary Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles.  Surprisingly, one of my lab mates, Archana, had never gone in her four years at USC!  We were lucky enough to take her out and introduce her to the Pico location.

Three out of the five of us went with the classic – Obama’s Special (aka Country Boy), which includes three wings and a waffle topped with butter.  The two others got a plate of fried chicken livers (actually really good!) and half of a chicken + a stack of waffles.  Although none of us ordered one of their specialty mixed drinks, nearly everybody else in the restaurant got one.  These include ordinary combinations like iced tea + lemonade and also unique ones like fruit punch + lemonade and OJ + lemonade.  These come out in a gorgeous display with the two different juices still separated in the cup.  Next time I go, I’ll definitely have to get one of those!
