Verdun's Jack le coq Is A New Super Crispy Fried Chicken Joint

Fried chicken joints have been popping up across Montreal. From Saint-Henri to Sainte-Catherine to Chinatown, the sweet, peppery aroma of fresh hot crispy chicken is blowing through the streets. Now, with the arrival of Jack le coq, it's Verdun's turn. 

The new restaurant has opened up shop at the corner of Wellington and Willibrord at the former location of one of Quebec's last remaining Dunkin' Donuts.

The restaurant prides itself on its "100% québécois" chicken and "comforting" local food that it says differentiates it from "the commercial chicken of [its] competitors."
