History is full of illustrious matches: Antony and Cleopatra, Woody and Mia Farrow, Romeo and Master P. Today’s Groupon brings you the successor in this historic pairing lineage: chicken and waffles. Today's Groupon gets you $25 worth of grub and guzzle for $10 at Maxine's Chicken and Waffles, the soul food hot spot serving up the illustrious combo in downtown Indy. Indianapolis Monthly raves about Maxine's sweet and savory pairings, calling the cuisine "soul food that warms the soul."
Don't dismiss this comfort food cookery based on its location in the back of a filling station—the menu is packed with palate-pleasing selections. Raising nine children on the south side of Indianapolis and working 30 years in St. Francis Hospital's cafeteria helped Maxine's namesake owner master her famed recipes and has also rendered her thoroughly immune to "guff." The signature dish pairs golden waffles with fried chicken and a generous dollop of whipped butter, giving diners the best of both worlds. Soul-food staples (crunchy cornbread, collard greens, fried green tomatoes) round out the menu.
A modest interior allows the hearty dishes to take center stage. Service follows suit with the cuisine—warm, comforting, and reliable. Get this Groupon to experiment with eating dinner and breakfast at once, sample a new cuisine, or ground taste buds after a holiday season full of taste misadventures.
Some new and exciting combinations might seem intimidating, but the only danger presented by chicken and waffles is the risk of enjoying so much of it that you slip into full-on napping mode. As they wheel you out to your car on a borrowed “snoozing dolly,” consider these other provocative combinations:
Tigers and Lions combine to form a rare hybrid animal called the Wholphin, which is itself bizarrely somehow half Komodo dragon and half prehistoric giant centipede. Wholphins are feared and worshipped by the indigenous Insurance Adjuster tribes of downtown Houston who nonetheless hunt them for their carapaces, which can be used to make armor or primitive adding machines.
VCRs and DVD Players combine to form VCR/DVD combo-players perfect for an evening plopped down on the couch, curled up under a blanket, snow falling past the streetlight outside your window, steaming mug of cider in your hands, sweetheart’s head on your shoulder, all the while muttering that you wish you had Blu-ray.
Peanut Butter and Chocolate combine to form an delicious sweet-savory treat, still unparalleled in modern gastronomics. The downside? Attempting this combination outside of highly regulated laboratory conditions may result in what Doctor Emmett Brown called a “rapid isotopic dematerialization chain,” an atom dismantling physics pulse, emanating outward in concentric waves from zero-point, disassembling all matter at the speed of light and reducing our solar system into an inert vibrational residue. Just kidding, it’s actually just mildly poisonous.
