Canadian cuisine isn't all poutine and maple syrup. As the meetingplace for dozens of different cultures, the capital city of Ottawa knows a thing or two about international fare, and the folks at YKO Charcoal BBQ Chicken on McArthur Avenue serve up some seriously delicious West African barbecue chicken.
While those who travel to Canada are well aware of the delicious food found in cities all over the country, they may be surprised to find a joint like YKOs in Ottawa, Ontario. Formerly known as Yres, YKO Charcoal BBQ Chicken has started anew, offering similar menu items with high quality ingredients in a comfortable ambiance.
Packed with smoky flavours and grilled to perfection, YKO's chicken will put a damper on anyone's appetite, and they'll probably have a hard time sharing more than a few bites. Visitors staying in Ottawa hotels should order a side of fried plantains and rice to complement the spicy meat, which is already served with a refreshing tomato-and-onion salsa.
