Always in to try a new fried chicken joint, Chimec also had a Picnic 2 Go as part of the Dine Outside Vancouver Festival. Located on Denman close to Robson, this meant we were within walking distance of several nice places to set up our blanket and picnic.
Dine Oustside Vancouver - Chimec Fried Chicken and Burger
They offered a pretty good deal for the picnic and they had a separate Special Offer (also as part of the festival).
So we lugged our couple of picnic bags to Coal Harbour and sat down in the shade. The $25 picnic consisted of some very decent fried chicken Five pieces that were meaty and nicely juicy were the main attraction.
There was a generous box of some pretty good fries that would have been better straight out of the fryer and had they not suffered our walk to the park.
Finally, a nice little Ceasar Salad with a few croutons. This needed to be assembled which was obviously a good thing! Then there was the Special Offer; more chicken!
A dozen Wings for ten bucks did not seem like a bad deal. Again they were pretty decently crispy and tasty. I know it's just fried chicken and everybody seems to be opening a fried chicken joint these days. I'm not going to tell you they are the best ever but they're not bad.
Back at headquarters on Denman, there are a few tables and some fairly friendly folks serving up your order. They have burgers too as their monicker suggests.
