We had been around the Trade Center Area today and as we planned to visit IKEA later on we thought it is better to eat before. The other day while passing by I had seen that a Chickenow Premiere had opened directly next to the Emirates Tower Metro Station on Sheikh Zayed Road. Today was a good chance to pass by and try it out. Parking is not easy, but if you park in the road behind the towers you should have no problem.
The Restaurant is not huge but quite stylish and cozy and even offers an outdoor seating which we have chosen to use. There is no table service so you have to go in and order on the counter. First thing I spotted on the menu: Build your own Burger. Great! I love this option. So I went for a Fried one with Tomato, Lettuce. Raw Onion, Capsicum, BBQ Sauce and Extra Cheese. The Burger was stunning, despite my simple choice I was stunned by the great taste. The Bun was not too soft and the chicken was very tasty.
Additional we ordered the Tender Combo for 2 which includes 6 chicken tenders served with Grandma sauce, coleslaw, texas bread , french fries and 2 drinks. We added on top mashed potato. If you expect a chicken a la KFC or Texas Chicken you are miles away from what you get here. The Restaurants says of itself they have the worlds best tenders. And after trying them this is not really easy to argue with. They are perfectly super crispy on the outside but still tender and soft in the inside which in combination with the grandma sauce is a real delight.
Price wise we paid all in all 83AED which I find is very reasonable for what you get. We will certainly go back there no matter how difficult parking is. If you want good chicken than there is no way around Chickenow!
