Black Camel special - Super Bowl wings

I was at Black Camel the other day and saw a sign promoting a special for Super Bowl Sunday - wings! They're apparently roasted, then glazed for the last couple of minutes with bbq sauce, which gets nice and caramelized - yum. They're .60 a pop, which seems quite reasonable. I'm not sure if they've done this for past Super Bowls (anyone know?). They don't veer off-menu very often but I've never been disappointed with any of their offerings. I think you need to pre-order.

  1. Very good to know, thanks peppermint pate!

      1. Do you have pre order them?
        A few dozen wings and some sammies would make for a great Super Bowl party!

          Sounds perfect - but don't forget their chili either, made with ends from their brisket. Really good.

          I think you need to pre-order but I'll double check.

          1. re: peppermint pate

            I had no idea they made chili! This just keeps getting better and better :D

            Oops.. I just read your original post again and noticed you did mention pre ordering D'oh!

            1. re: petek

              Okay, so here's the scoop - they're requesting that people pre-order (preferably by end of day today) as they need to make sure they have enough wings on hand plus do some prep. They are planning to make some extras to sell the day of but if you don't want to risk it, just give 'em a call. Looking forward to Sunday!!

                Thanks pp..much appreciated.
                Not sure where I'll be on Sunday(Scarbs or Y&E) so it'll be either wings & brisket sandwiches from B.C or takeout from L's Chinese.

        2. Awesome! Thanks for the post.

          1. Thanks for posting this peppermint. I live close by but I have never bought anything at the Black Camel but just ordered a few dozen wings for Sunday.

            Their sandwiches look delicious so I will certainly be back for one. I had a cappucino while there. It was good, but is nowhere near as good as the ones at Crema Coffee.

              Black Camel makes some of the best sandwiches in the city!! You definitely have to go back for a sandwich Flexitarian!!

              1. re: kwass

                I sure will. I was salivating when I read about their brisket and heard people ordering sandwiches, mmmmmm

                1. re: Flexitarian

                  The brisket sandwich with caramelized onions and mushrooms rules!

                  1. re: petek

                    +1 - with chipotle mayo (not bbq sauce). And sometimes half and half of both onions - think kwass taught me that trick!

                    Flexitarian, can't believe you've never tried one. This is perfect brisket weather we're having. Run, don't walk. Enjoy.

                    1. re: peppermint pate

                      Yup...you have to have both onions. No other way to have it :)

                      1. re: peppermint pate

                        Peppermint Pate: I always thought it was mainly a coffee place not a sandwich place, etc, until I read your post the other day. It seems to have a fantastic reputation. I may just be by tomorrow as my once in a while meat craving has been kicking in. I've been walking, cycling, running and driving by that place for years even before it was the Black Camel.

                        Ok, that's it. I am getting that brisket sandwich with mushrooms and both onions and chipolte mayo (not bbq sauce) tomorrow. I won't be able to sleep now!

                        1. re: Flexitarian

                          Haha - now you're talking! Funny that you thought it was a coffee place. They happen to make fantastic americanos, which most people think is suprising since they think it's just a sandwich place.

                          Once you've mastered the brisket combo, we'll move on to some other ones. One step at a time, little grasshopper.

                          Oh, and now that we've talked about it so much, I just may need to get a brisket sandwich tomorrow as well! Please post to let us know how you like it.

                          1. re: peppermint pate

                            Well I went today and yes that Brisket Sandwich is something else. And I love the Portuguese bun they use. But, I should have had the guy cut it in half. It was a bit messy to eat.

                            I will be back!

                            1. re: Flexitarian

                              Awesome - a Camel virgin no more! Thanks for reporting back. We can talk about the wings on Monday!

                          2. re: Flexitarian

                            Black Camel is much revered for their brisket, which I agree is great.

                            My favourite sandwich there however is the pulled pork.

                            Fire roasted red onions. Chipotle mayo. House BBQ sauce.

                            Oh dear.

                            1. re: magic

                              Sounds like a place I have to visit. Is there any place to park nearby?

                              1. re: Herne

                                Most people park out front and keep an eye on their car to avoid the active ticketers in the area. On the other side of Yonge, there's a laneway that has legal parking after 10am. After 11, there is lots of street parking a block and further north, on either side of Yonge.

                                1. re: Herne

                                  I always park on Roxborough, about a 4 minute walk away (on the west side of Yonge). Lots of free parking there. Easy.

                                2. re: magic

                                  My favourite is the pulled chicken with both onions, BBQ sauce (I usually ask for extra), cremini mushrooms, and fire roasted tomatoes. Sometimes I add (my own) yellow mustard to it as well, to offset the sweetness of the BBQ sauce! It really is one of the better sandwiches around!

                                  As for parking, I usually park illegally right in front of BC, but like PP said, there is parking on the other side of Yonge. Never thought to park on Roxbourough, but that's a good idea.

                                  1. re: kwass

                                    I will have to try that combination. Sounds good.

                                    Yeah there's lots of sidestreet parking in that area. I never even thought to park in front of BC. I just like to sit, relax and not have to worry about a traffic cop.

                                    But it's all good.
