SOCO is truly shaping up to be one of my favorite spots to eat. From modern Mexican American at Taco Maria to Shuck Oyster Bar and Axe, it truly brings the culinary experience. Did I mention that a Tapas Bar will be opening soon? I couldn't be more delighted, as one of my favorite restaurants of all time – and quite possibly the inspiration behind Your Next Bite – was Cobras & Matadors in LA. We'll see if it measures up. But I digress....
We'd been craving waffles all day, after our failed attempt to find ANY waffles for brunch that morning in the Corona del mar area. So, we decided to get waffle EVERYTHING.
- glutton's delight, thick bechamel-like cheese sauce, super spicy, Imperial IPA Irish Nachos with Cabbage, Jalapeno & Prosciutto simmered in Imperial IPA over Waffle Fries with Lager Cheddar Sauce $8
- good crunch, light 'n crisp, Buttermilk Fried Chicken Waffle with Vinaigrette Coleslaw & Jalapeno Maple Syrup $8
- sadly soggy, Country Style Buttermilk Fried Chicken smothered with Country Style Gravy on a Belgian Waffle $10
If you're expecting a Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles experience, then this is not the place for you. Iron Press brings a more sophisticated approach with 15+ sweet and savory waffles and fancy fresh ingredients.
