Pili Pili Grilled Chicken is Restaurant of the Month for May ’17
Our Restaurant of the Month for May ’17 is Pili Pili Grilled Chicken, with locations downtown on Dalhousie Street and in Orleans on St. Joseph Boulevard. “Pili pili” is the francophone African pronunciation of “piri piri”, the namesake sauce made from the African bird’s eye chili pepper. Pili Pili Grilled Chicken grills their signature protein over 100% natural hardwood charcoal for authentic grilled wood flavour.
The process begins by marinating the chicken for 24 hours with a unique blend of 14 herbs spices. Then, it is cooked to order in a traditional West African manner and served fresh off the grill in a choice of mild, medium, or very spicy seasoning. Why? Pili Pili believes that despite the development of gas, petroleum, and electricity to cook food, nothing but wood is able to produce the juicy texture, crisp skin, and robust smoky taste of their chicken.
For sharing, the Whole Chicken Dinner offers an entire Charcoal Grilled Chicken plus family-sized portions of seasoned rice, sweet plantain, and garden salad. Also available is an affordable lunch special for one of chicken and a choice of side.
