Red Rooster was recommended to me by my Russian friend (the fuck would he know about Portuguese Chicken?)

Regardless, I went. The place itself is located in a small plaza by the hospital. They were pretty busy for takeout, despite them having multiple tables open at the joint. The pretty girl at the front was taking everyone's orders and frantically running around the place.

We took our seat and ordered up some half chicken dinners. You can choose between char-grilled or rotisserie and comes with 2 sides. (Opted for the char-grilled). When it first comes out, you'll be surprised with just how large the portion size is! HUGE plate. The chicken was grilled very nicely where the skin wilted and was crisp and salty. The meat itself was a bit dry and needs the sauce to offset it. Now that sauce...amazing. It was a nice blend of spice and flavor without being oily or overly runny. The wife and I lapped up that sauce so quickly. Might as well had been pouring it into our mouths, dripping down, eyes closed and all.

The sides were meh. The rice was way too dry, while the french fries were a bit too salty and flaccid. The Parisian potatoes though were perfection. They were nicely crisp on the outside, but the inside was as soft as butter. They had a fluffy interior and were a perfect vessel which was ideal for soaking in more of that sauce.

Overall, the Russian was on the right track. Red Rooster had some good Portuguese chicken with a very addictive sauce. The prices are good and service is stellar. Definitely worth stopping in as Portuguese chicken places pop up sporadically across the city. They also have a second location a few km west. Don't know why they opened two locations so close to each other, but whatever works for them.
