Brasa (MSP) - Why can't they get the roasted chicken as great as everything else

jfood | Jan 6, 2010 07:16 AM

Jfood is a HUUUUGE fan of Alma and Brasa, but it just baffles him in one respect. Once again jfood needed to work in the hotel so he decided some sandwiches from Brasa would make the evening more better (sic). He ordered pulled pork and BBQ beef sandwiches and could not resist getting a 1/4 chicken as well (the yams somehow made it into the bag as well :-)).

He unpacked when he arrived in his room and grabbed the chicken leg as he washed up. It was really, really good. Then he pulled the chicken out of the container and onto the plate. The first thing he noticed was the portion. The gave him a breast with the bottom half removed, plus his already eaten leg. So they swap a leg for the bottom half of the biggie since jfood had plenty but that would bother him otherwise. Then he cut off and ate a piece of the breat...just dry as can be, once again. Jfood did not even try to eat a second bite.

Now the sandwiches are just so far over the top great, jfood could not care less about the breast in hindsight, but he just does not understand why the genius of Brasa just cannot seem to get a rotisserie chicken cooked right.

Any thoughts or comments?
