Bairro Chicken - Calgary

Went there today and tried their Flame Broiled Chicken. Medium Piri-Piri, which had a nice kick to it. Marinated for 24 hours. Bai Rice was good as well.
Loads of specials, probably to kick start the business. 2 quarters, dark meat, $6.35

Also tried their fried chicken, very good as well. The coating was crispy and not starchy at all.

Located at 1919 - 31st Street SE (Just off 17th Ave SE)

    Have you tried the flame broiled chicken at Nando's? Just curious which place tastes better.

        Hands down Nando's is much better.
        I tried Bairro once...but sadly not impressed.
        Back to Nando's for piri piri chicken.

        Is that rice in the container? If so, why?

        Huge fan of piri-piri... I can get it as hot as I like and my gf loves the flavour of the milder stuff. Been to Nando's a few times with average to good results. Thanks for posting the location of Bairro, will have to check it out.

          It is Rice, yes. Not sure why they served it in a container though.
