Chewies - Chicken & Waffles

Chewies Coal Harbour

Chewies Steam & Oyster Bar is a Southern-style cuisine restaurant known for their oysters, but that’s not the reason for my visit.  I had a craving for Chicken and Waffles so having remembered that Chewies offer it on their menu, I took a trip down to their Coal Harbour location for lunch.

Merchant’s Oyster Bar
