Popeyes is back in Metro Vancouver after a long hiatus. It’s funny how some fast food chains disappear and then reappear. Ever since opening, they have been slammed for the lunch and dinner rush even though it is all the way in Port Coquitlam.
Later in 2019, additional Popeyes will be coming to Surrey, Kamloops and Pentiction in British Columbia. That’s a great thing as there will be more convenient locations for some. Too bad there aren’t any ones closer to Downtown Vancouver.
There is a counter at the back to order your meal and some seating. Best to come early and avoid the rush as this area can fill up with people waiting in line.
2 Piece Chicken Combo
This comes with a leg and thigh with a biscuit, a drink and your choice of side. There’s a few options but we went with the cajun fries. The cajun fries were very very good.
The chicken reminded us of Church’s Chicken – crisp exterior and moist meat inside. The biscuit was so good that our friend got an extra biscuit to the order.
Cajun Chicken Sandwich Platter
The platter option comes with 2 sides and a large drink. We went with red beans & rice as well as the Macaroni and Cheese. You can’t get a biscuit with the sandwich combos or platters.
The ciabatta bread was very soft but the chicken patty itself was a bit on the small size. The red bean & rice was ok but it did have more flavour than the mac n cheese. The mac n cheese was not good at all.
3 Piece Tenders Combo
The 3 tenders were very fresh, light crisp breading, and a good size. We got blackened ranch to go with it and it worked well.
With the combo, there was another biscuit and we got onion rings. The biscuit was great but the onion ring batter was soft and not as crisp.
Popcorn Shrimp Combo
Nothing special and not as good as the tenders. The combo comes with a side and a medium drink. Went with the cajun fries with this combo.
It’s weird how you can’t get some items ala carte and it must be a combo or a platter. Sometimes you don’t really need the sides but the menus make you order more food, which is super weird.
For the next visit, we would get tenders or chicken with cajun fries and a biscuit. Can’t go wrong with that combination.
