(Comes with fries and a drink)

This new spot, which has been in the works for a year, uses a fried chicken technique that dates back more than 30 years for its crispy, juicy chicken offerings.

Shawn’s Chicken cooks Yongshun fried chicken, a “well-known specialty snack started in Beijing, China, in the 1990s.”

Their technique involves marinating the chicken in more than 20 different kinds of Chinese herbs, a process that is meant to enhance the flavour of the chicken and add extra moisture before deep frying.
