This is chef/owner Asha Gomez's signature "the Indian south meets the American south" dish. Seasoned with traditional Kerala spices like ginger, cardamom, and clove, boneless chicken thighs fry up tender, dark, and rich served atop an almost savory "low-country" waffle. The dish's quintessential sweetness comes from Gomez's glorious maple syrup - thick and boldly laced with toasted coriander, cumin, and red chili flakes - served in a tiny pitcher on the side. Don't be afraid to pour, pour, and pour some more. $15.
