About a week or so ago, a coworker had asked me for a lunch recommendation. I suggested the Calvary Waffle Shop, which had returned for Lent. Plus, I told her, it was fish pudding day!
Her response, via email, was a tad dramatic:
that's what my vomit typed out as it hit the keyboard. FISH PUDDING???
Pam and Leonard and I stopped by the Waffle Shop last week, and it couldn't have been more charming or more mayonnaise-covered.
The fish pudding (pictured at top) is a Waffle Shop specialty. It was described to me as similar to a gratin.
Pam went with the Calvary Salad Plate — chicken salad, tomato aspic, shrimp mousse, and a pear slice filled with cottage cheese.
And wouldn't you know it? There are waffles at the Waffle Shop. You can get 'em with just syrup or topped with sausages or chicken hash.
The Waffle Shop is open 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and runs through March 26th, at Calvary Episcopal Church, 102 N. Second.
