Camberwell Charcoal Chicken, Camberwell by Obelix

Camberwell Charcoal Chicken is our family's chicken go-to.  Despite curt customer service (I have yet to see the proprietress crack a smile), we keep going back and here are the reasons why.

Camberwell Charcoal Chicken
Its chickens are far superior to the roast chooks of the supermarkets.  The charcoal flavours permeate through the moist meat.

The chooks are stuffed but not overly so, with just enough stuffing to provide a herbaceous scent.

The salads, whilst not imaginative, are fresh.  They have a selection of the usual suspects: tabouleh, coleslaw, pasta, Greek salad, etc.  The chips are a bit of a let down compared to the chicken and salads.  They're a bit stale in texture and could have done with more seasoning.

But all in all, for $27 give or take a few cents, we bagged a large chook, two salads and small chips.

Look past the surly staff at the counter and this becomes a pretty decent weeknight chicken and chips raid.

Check out King Chooks in Blackburn. Chips and chicken to die for. Apparently scalloped potatoes are awesome also.
