In Bras D’Or (outside Sydney) is a restaurant called A&K Lick-A-Chick. After hearing about this place as the “best tasting fried chicken on the island”, we just had to stop in for a bite.
It was lunch time and judging by the number of people waiting in line, my husband and I knew we were in for a bit of a wait. We found a booth and with ticket stub in hand we passed the time listening to the locals, looking at the merchandise (taking note of the hats in individual plastic bags over the counter) and watching the traffic rush by. When our number was called, my husband and kids had to wait another 10 seconds while I took a picture of our delicious crispy chicken and fries. Then we ate like beasts from an episode of “Wild Kingdom.”
This place is such an icon that there are over 4300 fans on Facebook. A discussion item on the fan page asks “what is your favourite menu item” and it appears to be a toss-up between the 3 piece chicken dinner and the chicken fingers. A person named Sha wrote that “chickens don’t have fingers.”
After a satisfying lunch, we were back in the car and on our way to Louisbourg. Thinking that we should’ve drove across the street to Lick-A-Treat for an ice cream but, then again, we had one earlier that day in Baddeck.
