Aside from a good order of eggs benny, we all know that the go-to brunch order of 2016 is, without a doubt, chicken and waffles. There’s just something about deep-fried protein served on top of a giant platter of butter, syrup, and straight-up carbs that make your Saturday night drinking decisions seem less regrettable. You’re finally able to absorb all of the alcohol that you managed to keep down last night, and even with a couple of mimosas, this perfect combo of protein and carbs actually makes you feel human again. Besides, it always looks awesome on Insta, which is the real purpose of brunch to begin with.
However, chicken and waffles may have just been replaced forever, because this dish just got an upgrade in a major way that will have postgrad girls across the nation showing up for brunch like they never have before. Restaurant Saltie Girl in Boston just seriously upped their brunch game by serving – wait for it – lobster and waffles. If this sounds weird, just take a look at the Insta below and tell me you’re not already salivating thinking about your upcoming Sunday brunch plans.
This lobster is fried, which means that not only does it melt in your mouth, but also that it perfectly compliments the ocean of butter needed for your waffle. If this doesn’t cure your hangover, I honestly don’t know what will. The verdict is still out on whether syrup will be tasty with this dish, but I’ll be damned if I don’t try it and find out for myself. Regardless, though, Boston just got a whole lot better with the best brunch menu option since the invention of bottomless mimosas.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a plane ticket to buy..
