Just finished a BBQ chicken panini sandwich at Lykn’ Chicken at 7460 Airport Rd. Great sandwich, there is so much BBQ chicken on the sandwich that it kept falling out. Great BBQ sauce, the owner makes his own sauce. The chicken was moist and a little Smokey, with cheese, lettuce, and some ranch dressing, great sandwich! This place is bold selling Panini sandwiches right next door to Quiznos Sub, but do any of these sub places have real chicken or that mechanically deboned mush (at least the chicken looks that way to me). The sandwich was less than $8.00, considering that it’s like a ¼-chicken on a bun, I thought this was a very tasty deal.
I’ve eaten food from here before, best pulled pork sandwich I ever had it comes with coleslaw on the sandwich, good BBQ chicken and I’ve also ordered on a few occasions a whole BBQ turkey, that’s right, a whole BBQ turkey. The whole turkey is amazing! Not dry turkey, but moist and Smokey. Considering what sliced turkey from a deli cost, this turkey makes amazing sandwiches, not to mention a nice part of a turkey dinner. The bones make an interesting stock, just a hint of smoke flavour. They also do prime rib, sucking pick and whole duck, which I’ve never tried.
They have your typical side salads, garden salad, potato salad etc... But this little place makes that best coleslaw imho. They also have hamburgers, wings, and fried chicken. Now the fried chicken is very good, not greasy and salty like KFC (though I’ve not eaten KFC since the early 80’s, maybe things have changed?). You have your choice of spicy or regular. Both or good, the spicy has a little heat and when drizzled with honey, makes for good eats.
They also have ribs, but I’m not a fan of the cut of ribs they use, which for the life of me I can’t remember. They are very meaty and also there is a nice smoke ring of the meat. But when it comes to BBQ ribs I prefer Spare ribs. In the oven I like back ribs.
Now when I think of fish & chips I thing back to the old days when I started working delivering fish and chips after school on my bike when I was 12, and an order of cod and chips cost $1.35 plus ten cents for delivery. This was deep fried in beef tallow, great colour, get texture, and flavour. So when I had the Tilapia with chips (not fresh cut potatoes or beef tallow), I was very impressed! Deep fried and breaded with Panko it was just great! Also, not little package of mayo and green things, they make there own tarter sauce, which is very nice. The fries are not fresh cut, but they are very crispy and are proper fries. I think with some practice they could do very good frites or at least fresh cut fries.
The place is small, two small tables and also a counter, with a few picnic tables outside. The only thing missing is a pint of beer or a nice Gewürz, or both!
So I’m a little surprised that very little is mentioned
