• What’s {Good} Here: Bloodies and Chicken Wing Waffles at South House in JC

    Written by:

    Spring bike rides should always end in fried chicken wings n’ waffles, and a SPICY Bloody MaryThe best place to find them? South House – a southern Tex Mex bar/restaurant/people watching haven located on the pedestrian plaza of downtown Jersey City {Yankee territory}.

    Believe you this, Hoboken residents…it is well worth the journey. Let’s start with our drink order. South House has a “farm-to-glass” mentality and good Texas home-style hospitality. So when it comes to the Bloody Mary, they’ve got 4 to choose from. We went with the fiery, fresh “Willie Nelson Bloody.” It came with everything but braids.

    Next up, your food order. This is difficult because they have BRUNCH TACOS + every classic with a Tex Mex twist. Yes, brunch tacos! We ordered the eggs benedict {chipotle hollandaise, seasoned home fries} and the fried chicken wings n’ waffles — and def WON the brunch game.

    We advise you do the same.

    The waffle was crisp and freshly made. But the HUGE (like, really large) chicken wings had a crunchy, sexy, seasoned coating with smoky spice and subtle heat that was addictive…with the kiss of Bloody Mary on the side. We’ve never had chicken wings on a waffle before but believe this – they were SO good.

    As previously mentioned, South House is a great people watching spot on a pedestrian street in JC. Look at these chairs outside! Lots of fun — especially since Newark Ave has become such a hot commodity with its pedestrian walkway. So before or after brunch, grab a cocktail and chill out on a rocking chair. You’ll forget you’re in New Jersey {not that you’d really want to, but hey}.

    So, the only question that remains: WHICH Bloody Mary would you choose? Answer below!
