Hello readers, its been almost three weeks since my last blog post and I have really missed writing. I have been quite overwhelmed with series of shoots, meetings and of course school preparations. I am starting with Cluck’n chicken and waffles because it was my very first food shoot for the year and I have been obsessed ever since.
Cluck’n chicken and waffles is a brand new chicken joint located at No.2 Bangui street, Wuse 2 Abuja. They sell amazing chicken which is served in tasty little waffle cones. Asides from serving waffly good chicken, their menu also include different drinks, a tasty apple crumble dessert and shisha.
In this blog post, I’ll be giving an insight on the Cluck’n space, their menu, the food and of course my favourites.
The cluck’n chicken and waffle space is definitely one of the most beautifully designed food spots I’ve been to lately. Its a small space, but every corner was definitely effectively utilised. I am no design guru but I can definitely tell if a place is beautiful and this one is. My favourite thing about the entire place is the burnt orange coloured stools, they really give the whole place a unique and popping flair which makes the place 10x more beautiful. There is also a prep counter inside, where you can see all the BTS action going on with the food. Another thing to love about the cluck’n space is that it comes alive at night. It is quite beautiful during the day but even more attractive at night when the decorative lights come up.
I didn’t get as much pictures of the space as I would have wanted, but here’s a glimpse of what it looks like.
As I mentioned earlier, the cluck’n menu includes tasty waffly chicken, chicken wings, drinks, water, dessert and shisha. There are however some things not listed on the menu yet which are available and there might be some future changes/additions that would be made so stay tuned for a blog update. The food prices at cluck’n are super affordable and I love how the menu features some Nigerian elements like kuli kuli, yaji and so much more.
The food at Cluk’n honestly tastes as good as it looks. I had the opportunity of shooting the entire menu but I didn’t get to try everything though. I tried the dessert first and it was really sweet, literally perfect for a sweet tooth craving. I also had a taste of the cluck’n burger, waffle burger (not on the menu) and the plantain sandwich.
Here’s a look at what I had and what I thought of it.
Most of the things I tried were not listed on the menu yet so you guys are lucky i’ll be spilling exclusive tea. Both the Cluck’n burger and the waffle burger cost NGN3,200 and they come served with chips. The burger is by far the best thing on the menu in my opinion. Not that everything else isn’t really tasty but I’m a sucker for a nice burger. The burger was extremely delicious and I’ve never tried something like it before. It had chicken, egg, salsa, some nuts, cheese and it was spicy. I’m not really a fan of hot and spicy food but really quite enjoyed this one. If you go to cluck’n be sure to order this burger and thank me later.
The plantain sandwich isn’t on the menu and I don’t know if its going to be in the future but I found it really creative and delicious. While I was awaiting the food for the shoot, the chef really wanted me to try something and he whipped up this masterpiece with the ingredients available. I honestly wish they’d add it to the menu because asides from being delicious it’ll be a very unique addition.
The apple crumble was nice and really sweet but I generally wish it had more moisture because it seemed a bit dry, but it was still nice regardless.
Here are some other things I covered for the shoot but are available on the menu that I didn’t get to try.
Cluck’n chicken and waffles is a really beautiful place with great chicken, lit ambience and good vibes. I love that they are bringing something new to the table. They are also super affordable and have different amazing deals on different days of the week so be sure to follow them on Instagram @clucknabuja so you won’t miss out on amazing deals. I truly enjoyed woking with them and I look forward to working with them again in the future.
Finally, to answer the first initial question, cluck’n chicken and waffles is not the first of its kind in the city of Abuja. It’s actually the second. The first chicken and waffle place launched in Abuja is called wfl.ng. It was launched earlier in 2020. Im still yet to check it out but when I do I’ll definitely be giving all juicy details on my blog.
