Best bbq chicken was re-voted (yet again!) and this time it was even further from us, St. Matthew’s was north of St. Clair all the way over by Keele. However we had cleared out everything nearby and this was now all we had left, and best Portuguese restaurant which was a block or two away. The best of 2016 lists were only slowly starting to trickle in and as of Saturday the only one posted was best bar, but we already been there, of course it was Birreria Volo.
I was wary of going for bbq chicken, I knew exactly what to expect: two pieces of potentially dry chicken, buried under a mound of rice and potatoes. I was pleasantly surprised. The chicken was the best yet (we have been to so many places already!) the skin was crispy but the meat was not dry. The rice, while plentiful, was actually quite good. Everything was doused in hot sauce as well.
