Baraka Grillade/BBQ Sur Charbon
I reviewed this place on the West Islands's Best Kept Secrets page, but felt it deserved it's own thread. My taste buds tell me this place deserves a nice review because the quality is good, the price is reasonable, the people are super nice and the chicken is out of this world.
Baraka Grillade/BBQ Sur Charbon has been open right beside Mourelatos on Saint Jean for about seven months. I dropped in for the first time on Saturday and had a small Shish Taouk brochette on pita and a small filet mignon pita. I got both sandwiches with their creamy hummus ans spicy marinated eggplant. Hands down, this is the best Shish Taouk I have ever had! Both the chicken and the filet mignon were extremely tasty and tender. Much tastier than my previous favorite, Abu Elias! I was so impressed that I went back the next day and ordered their whole spatchcock marinated chicken. It was excellent too. Everything is made fresh to order, so it is a good idea to call ahead to order in advance, allowing one hour for the whole chicken. I didn't try the potatoes or rice, but they looked very tasty. This place was also very clean. Super friendly owner and staff and excellent value for the money. In fact, why cook chicken at home? Their "family deals" are a great deal. This is my new favorite place.
