For my great grandma Peepa’s birthday, our whole family went to Melba’s Restaurant in Harlem. My Uncle Henry made a reservation for us and when we walked in I could see why. Man, that place was packed! Once everyone got settled at our table, we ordered our food. Melba’s serves soul food which is food from the southern United States. Soul food can be things like corn bread, hush puppies and black-eyed peas. Those are some of my favorite things. Melba’s is known for their fried chicken and eggnog waffles. They were featured on The Food Network. Almost everyone in my family got the chicken and waffles including me. I don’t think you’d be surprised that I got it. I wouldn’t have been surprised either. I was so excited when the food came because I was starving. When I bit into the chicken it was so crispy on the outside and so tender on the inside. I love fried chicken! When you dip it in syrup it’s even better. The waffles were packed with sweetness and was really soft. On top of the waffles, there was strawberry butter. The whole restaurant sang Happy Birthday to Peepa and they brought her chocolate cake. Our waiter Thomas was really nice and gave Peepa the cake as a birthday present. I’m glad my Uncle Henry took us here and I think I’d come here again. You should too. HAPPY BIRTHDAY PEEPA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
