Earlier this month my wife and I were looking for a place to eat in Galleria and I saw something that looked like it would definitely hit the spot, The Pancake House. They had some interesting looking ads in the window and the one that caught my eye was a fried chicken tenders and waffle dish. It claimed to be ‘Southern’ style chicken, as in Southern US style chicken. Fried chicken is popular in the South, but from what I know (from a movie) the idea of waffles and chicken is something from Los Angeles. Well, I could be wrong.
The service standard at the restaurant was great. We were greeted at the door and quickly shown to a seat. The service from the waiter was prompt and friendly. The place is clean and it has a nice theme. My dish seemed a little pricey, but it was still reasonable, especially since it was in the mall.
This is the Southern chicken and waffle. There was also a small bit of salad that was pretty good. I loved the black olives. The dish also came with three sauces: syrup for the waffle, a gravy for the chicken, and a light, tangy dressing for the salad.
My wife ordered a traditional Filipino dish that’s usually called crispy liempo. The menu had a fancy name for it, but I can’t remember what it is. The meat is deep-fried pork belly and the rice is garnished with fried garlic.
