Winner, winner, Portuguese chicken dinner!!!

So, we’re hanging out at Bairrada Churrasqueira, this funky little chicken shack on College Street. This place is kind of a west-end empire, killin’ it and grillin’ it since ’89 with locations in Little Portugal, Little Italy, Corso Italia…and they’ve even got one in Mississauga. But no matter where you go, you KNOW that the bird is the word, bro!!!!

Now, this ain’t no Swiss Chalet quarter chicken dinner, son! For just $13.50, you get a drumstick, wing, breast and thigh, with a side of rice, potatoes and a buncha black olives, for a little extra kick. The chicken is super tender ‘n juicy, you get nice char marks from the grill, and it melts in your mouth like goody, goody gumdrops!

The sides are pretty decent, but nothing special. Apparently, you only get fries if you order the steak…so I guess I’ll just hafta save room next time. 😉
