Poulet a la James North


It is always a pleasure to find a place that is wise enough to choose one thing and do it exceptionally well. Charred is one of those places.  This tiny and intimate little central Hamilton resto does chicken, - charred on a charcoal rostisserie and served with homemade piri-piri sauce. 
They do several different riffs on the charred chicken theme - one of the best is the poutine - fresh cut fries, homemade piri piri cheese curds and gravy. Add charred chicken on top and this is a filling and delicious dish. (Regular $5; large $7; charred chicken on top, $3)

  Another good bet is the Charred Sandwich ($7) - pulled charred chicken with peppers and onions, topped with aged cheddar, homemade piri piri mayo and cilantro.

There's also chicken to take out, as well as fresh salads and roasted potatoes.
And that's about it - simple, delicious and really well done.
The space is also unpretentiously simple, with reclaimed brick walls, some local art, and tables in the window that give a clear view of the action on James Street.

Charred is an attractive place for a casual lunch for those who love BBQ chicken and piri piri.  It's another good excuse to hang out on James Street North.
