Dirt Cheap Eats 2007: Oohhs & Aahhs

Late Night Eats

The electric bill at this soul-food kitchen went up in April when co-owner Indiah Wilson added a late-night shift. Wednesday through Sunday from midnight to 4, she replaces collards and yams with waffles and fried chicken.

Wilson, often in “going out” garb and fresh from the dance floor at Lotus Lounge, fills Styrofoam boxes with Frisbee-size waffles and five fried wings for $10.95. Although the waffles have egg whites mixed in to lighten the batter, home fries aren’t as guiltless: The cajun-spiced potatoes join grilled red and green peppers in a sauté of pure butter.
