CHARRED ROTISSERIE HOUSE 4 out of 5
244 James St. North, Hamilton, On. (289) 396 - 0662 , Lunch and Dinner Mon. - Sat.
On a blustery rainy Saturday afternoon my sons Mark (http://www.markallenrealty.ca/) and Thomas (http://rebuildhamilton.com/) and I decided to try a new restaurant on James Street North in Hamilton. It features charcoal rotisserie chicken and piri piri sauce. It is located in a rapidly changing community of restaurants, bars and art galleries.
There is a chalkboard menu on the exposed brick wall that can be a bit confusing, but they hand you a simplified version on entry.
The interior space is clean and simple in design.
My son Mark decided on their Pulled Charred Chicken Sandwich with peppers and onions, topped with aged cheddar homemade piri piri mayo and cilantro ($7 plus $3 with fries and coke). The sandwich was tender, tasty and filling.
My son Thomas and I decided on the 1/2 chicken with fries and a coke.
The chicken was juicy, tender and very good. The piri piri sauce was a little bland. The bread was fresh and the fries were great ($13). Charred has a nice atmosphere, great chicken and worth a visit. The people are friendly here and the prices are reasonable. We will definitely come back for more delicious chicken.
