EAT SLC: Comfort Food

Chicken and Waffles? I don't think I have ever heard of this combination until recently, but apparently this food partnership is very comforting. The Bayleaf boasts a broad menu of what they call "comfort food".  Dishes are as varied as corned beef hash & eggs to pancit bihon pineapple fried rice, from Jamaican jerk chicken tofu saute to our dish of the evening, chicken n waffles.
Perfect late night cafe
We started out with deep fried pickles, which I loved!  I order chicken n waffles, because after hearing so much about them I just had to try them.  The waffle was good, the chicken was good (same breading as the pickles which can be an overload).  The dishes were simple, just the way your mom would make them.  Overall, the food was just good, not great or spectacular.  But there are 2 saving graces to the dinning experience.  #1 Kool-Aid. Yes, this delicious sugary drink that as children we consumed like it was its own food group is served in large mason jars with free refills.  #2 Open weekends 24hrs. Need somewhere better than Village Inn and Denny's for your late night weekend cravings, this is the place.  And this post was well time because it is Friday and tonight the Bayleaf Cafe will be opened late and I am feeling like some chicken fried chicken & eggs
Overall, I liked the place.  It is a fun place to hang out with friends and get some tasty food.  But if you are all about gourmet dinning this is not your place.

The perfect bite
