Cincinnati, OH Edition: The Eagle
Prepare yourself for one of the best meals I've EVER had. Seriously.
That's a bold claim considering I spent the entire weekend in Cincinnati eating, so I was never actually hungry at any of these restaurants. But, The Eagle served me a sandwich that I will never forget.
We were in line when they opened so we could get one of the first seats. They tend to have a long line, and we were short on time. But I knew we had to make it here. And, I'm so, so glad we did.
After being seated, I quickly skimmed the menu. They are known for their fried chicken, so I knew I had to get my hands on that. I went for the FRIED CHICKEN SANDWICH: fried chicken breast, cole slaw, spicy mayo, house pickles. I also ordered a side of spoonbread.
The sandwich came out with a side of this spicy honey - one of my favorites! - so I already knew this was going to be good.
Good god, if there's one chicken sandwich you have to eat in your lifetime - make it this one. The sweetness, spiciness, creaminess, crunchiness all combined with a touch of acid and a touch of heaven to make for one of the best things I've put in my mouth.
The spoonbread came out a bit late, so I ended up taking most of it to go and eating it on the ride back. It was pretty delicious, but I was still salivating over that chicken sandwich.
