Located at the very foot of Victoria Drive near Powell Street, we arrived Saturday morning at around 10:30 and were able to get a table right away. Our intention was to order whatever sounded most Scandanavian but my love of chicken and waffles got the best of me.
So not exactly Viking chow but this was really very good. I always tend to grumble about waffles as being too doughy or thick or not crispy enough but these were actually pretty good. Evidently, they are "Brussels" or "Belgian" waffles and are light because there is some leavening involved. The chicken was also nicely done. It was a piece of white meat butterflied and remained moist (white meat can get dry) and tender. I assumed brined but they said no! Just very carefully fried evidently.
Now, this seems more like something my Icelandic relatives would approve of! Smorrebrød with Salmon was served with a thin slice of house-made sourdough bread, smoked salmon (obviously), cucumber. capers, lemon, mayo, red onion and dill. Delightful! Just so you know, it took me a while to figure out how to type the o with a slash through it!
Finally, we had Liege waffles with 4 dips. These waffles were a little sweeter owing to pearls of sugar within the dough. The dips were chocolate, whipped cream, a ginger chocolate kind of thing, which was excellent and a strawberry concoction which was also very tasty and fruity.
Scandilicious has seating for probably a couple of dozen people inside (fewer at the moment) as well as tables outside. Service is friendly and at least partly Scandanavian. I honestly didn't know that John Catucci had gotten here before us but I can see why he dropped in. I guess you really do 'gotta eat here.'
For what its worth, we give Scandilicious 4 out of 5.
