Amer Butt, owner of Rooster’s Edge wasn’t intimidated when, in a sea of restaurants he decided to open up his own, near Heartland Town Centre. Offering hand-slaughtered halal fried chicken, seafood, burgers and wraps, Butt feels that his food speaks for itself and relishes in the competition. He hopes to entice customers with what he believes is a superb product in a cleanly and family-oriented environment. His confidence comes from many decades in the food service industry where he managed alongside his wife, three restaurants in Winnipeg before they decided to open up shop in Mississauga.
Although principally a meat-based menu, there is something to suit many dietary palettes! In addition to their main meat offerings, there are a number of vegetarian options available as well, including seafood, salads and other side dishes such as poutine, fries and onion rings. An accommodating menu makes this spot a worthy lunchtime, after work or weekend stop with colleagues, friends or family.
If you’re in the mood for fried chicken and some delicious coleslaw, Rooster’s Edge is the place to be. Although the meat is fried, grease isn’t dripping off the food and that’s a huge selling point. Sometimes you have a craving, and want to be able to enjoy some comfort food without feeling too guilty or weighed down after your meal, particularly if you have to get back to work. You especially want whatever you eat to be tasty, and after 24 hours of marination, the fried chicken is just that. Prices are also affordable, customer service seems to be a priority and the bathrooms are clean. The latter of which is kind of important at a food establishment, this reviewer thinks.
The halal food landscape in the greater Toronto area is vast, and some might say that halal Popeyes restaurants have had a monopoly on the fried chicken market for a while. So the next time you’re craving some deep fried goodness, why not try something different and head to Rooster’s Edge?
