When we had gone to Paulette’s Original Donuts and Chicken (I’m pretty sure the “original” doesn’t apply to their name) it had just opened back in July and there was a lot of buzz. Lets just say that there’s a reason why sometimes “buzz” doesn’t last long.
“Paulette’s Original Donuts and Chicken” doesn’t say good anywhere in there, so maybe it’s more accurate than it seems. With a little more space than The Burger’s Priest this is definitely not designed to be a sit down restaurant. Although I liked that they didn’t have loud music blaring like a lot of other places.
Since chicken is the main course, I’ll start with Paulette’s chicken box. When compared to the size of any decent Jamaican place or the delicious New Town Family’s it is hard to believe that Paulette uses adult chickens, unless they get the runts of every litter. Another problem is the breading seems to be solely composed of burnt grease crumbs scraped from the bottom of some rusty fryer. Several others also agree with me in that it was too crispy.
As for the macaroni and cheese, it was good but not special enough to change any opinion about this place, for better or for worse.
Are the donuts saving this restaurant from failure? Are gas companies saving the Earth and your wallets? Your donuts have a problem when Coffee Time and Tim Horton’s make better donuts than these so-called premium donuts. The only thing ‘premium’ about these sugar-crashes is the price. Your money would be better spent on a creature feature at the video store, if you want real art.
If you have any five-year-olds that get hyper easily because of sugar than avoid this like Chernobyl, for reasons you can probably guess. The only other complaint is that Nana’s Banana Coconut Cream Pie had no cream and the ‘banana’ was flavouring. I thought the closest thing it tasted like was bubble gum, if that tells you anything.
Service was average, so there’s nothing really important to say about it, and as for if I recommend it, didn’t you notice how I compared it to gas companies and Chernobyl?
