I now know from first-hand experience that pregnancy cravings exist, but I have to wonder... Are postpartum cravings a thing? If they are, then I'm definitely experiencing mega-cravings for fried chicken... more specifically, fried chicken and waffles at The Hamilton Kitchen & Bar in Allentown.
Before Caroline was born, Stephen tempted me with the idea of brunch at The Hamilton. Not five minutes later, his parents called us to find out whether we wanted to meet up for brunch since they hadn't seen us in a while. Naturally, it made sense to meet them there.
As it turned out, meeting for brunch was just a ruse, a story they concocted so I wouldn't catch on to the fact that family members and friends were surprising me with a baby shower at the house. I was completely floored and extremely touched by the gesture. Despite having a fabulous time, though, the thought of chicken and waffles has haunted me ever since that day.
Thankfully, I can satisfy my craving by writing this review of the meal I shared with some of my girlfriends at the restaurant last summer. That was the first time I ate the fried chicken at The Hamilton, and I became an instant fan. (Obviously.) Keep reading to see why.
