Great coleslaw at The Works!

Finally tried out the Oakville outpost of this Ottawa chain today at lunch - a great coffee shake, good burger done to order; but the outstanding feature was a generous bowl of cole slaw with a pinky, slightly spicy dressing I have never experienced before. The waitress just said it had "some jalapeno" in it which is sort of like saying butter chicken has "some curry spices"! But I didn't want to press her further. Anyone else tried this paragon exemplar of a usually bland dish? All in all a very pleasant hour - neither quick nor cheap, though the service is energetic and friendly but not quite over the top chummy thanks be... Not sure if placing the burger on a waxy paper in the metal trough helps a lot...I would go back now and then for sure..

    Thanks for the tip, love spicy slaw, and there's a location coming near us that I suspect will become a family favourite no matter what my chowpinion...

      Best slaw as a meal....Singaporean style slaw at Lee. $19, huge for 2, and it is always sensational!

      Their menu says jalapeno juice and white pepper, FWIW.
      Yes someday I will have to try the famous Lee slaw!
