What did I eat?


Draft Vieux Carre – rebel yell rye, copper & kings brandy, benedictine, dolin rogue vermouth, angostura bitters, peychaud bitters

  • Lucky Rooster has several cocktails available on tap which I thought was really cool because I have never come across that in a restaurant before.
  • I enjoyed this cocktail as it had a strong whisky flavour with a subtle sweetness from the brandy. It was a good accompaniment to contrast all of the fatty food from the meal.


Blue Corn Bread with Honey Butter

  • The cornbread was buttery with a crumbly texture and tasted rich and indulgent with the silky honey butter spread


Parmesan Sticks

  • The parmesan sticks were harder than I expected. Instead of being bready and soft they had a crunchy texture that was full of sharp cheese flavour.


Deep Fried Chicken Skins with Honey Drizzle

  • This appetizer was amazing and I would highly recommend getting it if it available.
  • The chicken skin was super crispy like a potato chip and very flavourful from all the fat.


Half a Fried Chicken – Carolina chicken, beer and bacon collard greens, smashed potatoes, and hot honey dipping sauce

  • The fried chicken was tender and juicy and coated in a thin, but crisp batter.
  • The beer and bacon collard greens were full of smoky bacon flavour and tasted so good you know they aren’t healthy for you.
  • I love smashed potatoes because of the earthy flavour and hearty texture the skins add so I enjoyed this side.

Final Thoughts?

Everything at Lucky Rooster was delicious and indulgent and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience modern southern food.
