Let us head to the United-States to enjoy a regressive gustatory journey with Baba Zulu. Meet on Faubourg Saint-Antoine in Paris 11th arrondissement to enjoy indulging dishes based on waffles and chicken. Intrigued? Let us tell you more…

Feel like indulging your taste buds and soul? We have got you covered! Baba Zulu is the “soul food” restaurant to try now. This comfort food coming straight from the U.S. provides us with a never-before-seen gastronomic experience to enjoy with your family or friends.

Baba Zulu gives pride of place to Harlem jazzmen’s culture by providing a menu focusing on chicken waffles – namely a sweet and savory mix based on chicken and waffles.

Waffles and chicken together, at first it seems a bit over the top… And yet, the cooking is light. Waffles are incredibly fluffy and light, a bit crunchy on the sides. Not too sweet, they perfectly match with maple syrup and chicken bites.

Honorable mention to the chicken: no matter how it has been cooked, it stays tender and very well-seasoned. In other words, it was finger-licking good! We particularly enjoy the chicken tenders with honey and barbecue sauce, delicately spicy, making us feel like we are eating in the United States, in a typical diner.

The homemade fries, very thin, are traditionally served as a side, but you can also order some mac & cheese, coleslaw salad, sweet potatoes, or aloco. As for drinks, go for it with sodas one cannot find in France.

Allow between €12 and €14 for dishes, which is quite reasonable. And enjoy a good deal at lunch, from Monday to Friday with a lunch set menu for €10!

The hearty serving sizes are enough to satisfy even the biggest appetites. Others can be rest assured: your meal will not be lost; Baba Zulu provides doggy bag if need be! And if you really feel like there is some room left, seasonal fruit waffles or banana and pecan waffles are available to put a soft end to your meal.

Please note Baba Zulu serves halal dishes and you can change some dishes to make them vegetarian-friendly. And if you are too tired to go, the brand is also available on delivery apps such as Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats!

The second Baba Zulu restaurant set at 23 rue Beaurepaire in Paris 10th arrondissement, in République is currently closed for renovations but is expected to reopen from Monday October 18, 2021.
