Superchicken is my latest obsession for fried chicken. A fun logo and a dose of nostalgia have found a home just south of Sheppard right on Yonge Street, nestling into the EAT BKK plaza and taking over the ol’ Smokes Poutinerie. The space came together in a snap, it’s tidy and a little tight, perfect for takeout. Fried chicken is the main draw here, with their other location up and running in Markham.
Halal chicken gets the crispy coated treatment and is reinvented in many forms, like these bite-sized and COVID- sharing-friendly Pop Chicken, served on a stick for handy eat-and-go grinds. A wooden stick is all that’s supplied and required, they’re juicy and addictive and a natural add-on to any meal.
Spicy chicken sandwiches are of course a logical next step. The chicken isn’t too spicy but very crispy and decked out in a lovely sauce. Some courtesy lettuce feels like you got at least something green in you, and the bun holds up to all this hefty weight. I couldn’t finish it all, even though I desperately wanted to. It’s the real deal, solid and satisfying.
Grab a tiny tub of Spicy Fries to seal the deal, they’re salty and not really that spicy but a necessary part of any greasy takeout meal. And in case you’re hitting up a park picnic, Superchicken thoughtfully included wet wipes AND plastic gloves for super sanitary snacking.
4716 Yonge Street, give them a follow and let ’em know you found out about them here! @superchickennnnnn
