As I mentioned, during my trip to Raleigh, I was trying to hit all the places in the south that I just don’t have access to in the north. Bojangles falls squarely in that category – I’m not sure they ever had any locations in the north but I wouldn’t even know – as I’ve heard over the years about Bojangles. I finally got a chance to try it early Saturday morning…
As it was breakfast time, I didn’t think it would be appropriate for me to order fried chicken. Sure, I have a friend who claims to have frequently purchased an 8 piece for dinner and consumed the entire thing in one sitting by himself, but… that isn’t me. I swear, it’s my friend!!! Ahem.
So I ordered the only thing on the breakfast menu that was chicken & a biscuit: the spicy chicken on a biscuit, with bo-tatoes and sweet tea. The sweet tea was pretty standard – not too sweet, which is great.
The biscuit was a little sad, a little soft and greasy. It tasted exactly like biscuits I hate, from fast food places I no longer visit. Fake-buttery, mushy, soft; I very quickly gave up and focused on the chicken inside.
I should have added hot sauce. The chicken was lightly spiced, but not spicy; overcooked a bit where the chicken was dry and stringy in places, and just… meh. It wasn’t bad, but this is definitely something I feel no need to revisit. Ever.
The bo-tatoes, on the other hand… well, these were great! Perfectly fried, mini-rounds of hash brown patty… yum! Crisp exterior, fluffy chopped potato interior, just fantastic. I liked these a lot and totally would eat these again. Since there’s mini, there’s more edges to get extra crispy, to soft fluffy interior. Love!
Yvo says: While my entire breakfast cost only $5.05 – which by the standards I’m accustomed is a complete STEAL – I don’t know, did I order wrong? I just wasn’t all that impressed by what I thought had to be awesome; fried chicken for breakfast? Come on! What did I do wrong? Someone? Help! I want to love this place, but… I didn’t.
