Sheriff Broaster Chicken is a fairly new fast food joint in North Scarborough. I was fairly nervous when I first tried it, as it most places in the similar category have been disappointing. Here’s a true story of how I first tried this place:
40 minutes before iftaar: Friend does a Facebook check-in at Sheriff Broaster Chicken.
Thoughts running through my mind: I have passed by this place a dozen of times now and I was waiting to try it after Ramadan but..AHH! So hungry…broast chicken..deep fried goodness…must..TRY!
5 minutes later: Rushes out the door, mumbles some random explanation to my mom, starts car and out we go! On the way there, I texted my friend from the car to find out what she had ordered.
30 minutes before iftaar: Arrives at Sheriff Broaster Chicken. Doesn’t bother looking at the menu and ordered the same thing as my friend: two piece chicken special. One order or two? What will mom say? Does mom want to eat this? I didn’t even ask her! Ahhh! Umm okay, make it two orders. But wait, what if it’s not good? I will never hear the end of it from my mom. She’s always telling us how we waste so much money on trying new restaurants. No time. Make it two orders!
10 minutes later: Food is ready. I get it packed and run out the door.
Arrive home 5 minutes before iftaar: I had a hard time answering my mom’s questions over the delicious smell of the chicken.
Iftaar time: Scared to try the first bite. Bismillah. *Puts a piece into mouth*. What the …this stuff is actually good! The chicken had a nice kick to it. When they said spicy, they meant spicy. Dips chicken in garlic sauce and ketchup. Yum!! Even my mom liked it. Now that is HUGE!
End of story.
Surprisingly and to our pleasure, the food was very good. The chicken was deep-fried to perfection and it wasn’t very greasy either. Meaning that it didn’t put us to sleep. Usually after eating Popeyes we both have a sudden urge to take a nap. Not this time and with this chicken. The two piece chicken special came with fries and lots of garlic sauce. Here’s a link to their menu: Sheriff Broaster Chicken Menu.
On our second visit we tried their chicken sandwich. We asked for spicy and boy, was it spicy! There were three of us that went that day and we all LOVED the sandwich. The owner insisted that we try the fish sandwich as that’s their best item but we passed on that. Since I’ve always been a fan of chicken sandwiches, I would certainly go for it on my next visit as well.
Apparently when my sister tried their fries, they were good and unique; however, when I visited, it were the spicy ‘Popeyes’ fries. Potato wedges were fine too.
Their seasoning is the key to their delicious chicken. It’s literally finger licking good (sorry KFC).
The best thing about this place is that it’s super duper clean. You can peek into the kitchen from the front counter and you can see all the squeaky clean equipment. My only hope is that they continue to keep the place that way because most desi run places fall short in this area.
Will I be returning to this place? Yes! (I am actually going again today. Shhh!). The two times that I have there I have heard the customers there praising their food and rightfully so! One customer was saying they live quite far from this place but drive down just for their chicken.
