TV DivaGal and family with Throwdown winner Melba Wilson!

TV DivaGal and family with Throwdown winner Melba Wilson!

The TV DivaGal celebrated her birthday this past weekend indulging in a delicious meal at Melba’s Restaurant in Harlem, N.Y.

Little did I know I was sitting in the presence of TV greatness.

Melba Wilson, the restaurant’s owner, had her own OMG on-air moment when she found herself challenged on Throwdown with Bobby Flay.

On the Food Network reality series, celeb chef Bobby Flay surprises unsuspecting fellow chefs in their kitchens and challenges them on making a better version of one of their signature dishes.

For Melba, it was her chicken and waffles platter.

With a tried-and-true mix of seasoning for the chicken and waffles made with a touch of eggnog and served with strawberry butter, Melba easily took Bobby down for the count.

She’s humble about it.

After all, it’s what she does, and she loves it, she told the TV DivaGal.

And so did we. The chicken and waffles were delish!

Catch Melba in action here.

    Hi Soror Delaina,
    Keep up the great work. I'm always looking for a new place to take my youth or out of town guests. How large is this restaurant? Does she work with groups? Thanks for highlighting the Good in our community.
