The Wandering Goose: Fried Chicken Biscuit with Sawmill Gravy
Located in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle, The Wandering Goose is a tiny eatery specializing in southern cuisine (particularly brunch items). With thirty-odd seats, finding an empty table can be difficult during the busy times and seating can be cramped.
While they bring your order to your table when it’s ready, you have to seat yourself and order at the front counter. I’m not a big fan of this type of service since it’s confusing and difficult to read the menu on the back wall (especially when there’s crowds of people lining up). I think I saw some tables had a paper menu but I didn’t see one at our table.
Nothing says southern comfort food like fried chicken and biscuits so we picked the Sawmill ($11.50) which is a fried chicken and biscuit sandwich with sawmill gravy and cheese.
This was a pretty good breakfast with a hearty and rich gravy and nice biscuit. Probably not as good of a biscuit and gravy rendition as the one we had at Pine State Biscuits in Portland but good nonetheless.
While this eatery feels a bit cramped, the tall ceilings help a bit to ease the claustrophobia and they do have a small patio with seating outside if you manage to snag a seat.
