Where: MAD Social, Chicago
What: What could possibly top chicken & waffles as a hangover cure? Chicken & churro waffles. Chef Mariela Bolaños deep-fries a churro waffle (literally just churro batter, waffled), tops it with Milanese-style fried chicken and pork belly, then spears it with a big ol’ knife. It’s served with syrup and her housemade hot sauce, because why should you have to choose between savory and sweet?
Wash it down with: The amazingly named Whiskey for Breakfast, with Buffalo Trace bourbon, maple syrup, liquid smoke, and egg white.
