THE PERI PERI SHACK
KINGSWAY AND FRASER
CHICKEN CHICKEN CHICKEN
The Peri Peri Shack is a new business in East Vancouver located at Kingsway and Fraser. They serve chicken similar to Nando’s style, and have sandwiches, bowls, and whole chicken on the menu. Nice to see a new business offering something new in the area.
Is it good?
The Peri Peri Shack is like a fusion of South Asian and Portuguese chicken. The chicken is covered with sauces like Citrus and Herb, Mango, Original, Hot and Very Hot sauces.
Flame Grilled Chicken Sandwich + 1 Regular Side $15.50
Good portion size and comes with fries, or Basmati Spiced Rice, Mashed potatoes, Mac and Cheese, Coleslaw, or Quinoa.
Whole Chicken $21
Drumsticks, thigh, wing and breast.
$$ HIGH PRICE. $16 for a chicken sandwich! Expect to spend $20+.
OK! The flavours were good. The chicken portions seemed big, and lots of meat with little to no fat. The skin isn’t crispy as it’s covered in sauce.
The Owner/Manager was honest enough to say that the chicken is cooked in a CONVECTION OVEN. Not a true grill or rotisserie. One the the thighs, seemed under cooked near the bone.
The fries were cold, and not fresh fried. I think they use the oven for the fries too instead of a deep fryer.
OK! The Owner/Manager was friendly, helpful.
No utensils provided or napkins. Had to ask for utensils and napkins.
Overall, SLIGHTLY SATISFIED. It’s not really flame grilled chicken but for what it is, Peri Peri Shack is just ok and as a new business needs improvement if they want to keep customers or expand.
