So there’s a new addition to the growing list of halal fast food restaurants in GTA: Whistling Copper Kettle. We learned it will be opening in October 2013. Yesterday night we couldn’t really decide where to eat (out) and we recalled Whistling Copper Kettle. We called them up and learned they’re open for business!
Whistling Copper Kettle is located at 5425 Creditview Road (Credview & Bristol), next to Shopper’s Drug Mart. This used to be the old Salt & Pepper. The ambiance and decor is fairly average. However, their menu is expansive, including Western, Hakka Chinese and some South Asian fusion menu items. We are sure there are enough items of please everyone.
We were feeling fairly adventurous and eager to try a variety of dishes, so we decided to order:
- Chicken Club Sandwich
- Copper Kettle Special Chicken Steak
- Karachi Bun Kabab
- Philly Cheesesteak
Our order arrived within 10-15 minutes. We first tried the Chicken Club Sandwich. The bread was nice and crunchy accompanied with toasty taste. The chicken, egg, cheese and other toppings had very subtle taste, yet it was a tasty sandwich that also felt very nice and light. We enjoyed the accompanied fries and coleslaw as well.
We next tried the Copper Kettle Special Chicken Steak. We were reluctant and didn’t know what to expect. Gotta say we enjoyed the chicken very much as well as the white sauce. The chicken breast was juicy, but also flavourful. We were pleasantly surprised and happy that we tried this dish.
We then tried the Philly Cheesesteak, which we found different from the traditional Philly Cheesesteaks. It had fried onions, fried bell peppers and oregano seasoning on it. It certainly was filling. We found the oregano a little overpowering.
Lastly we tried Karachi Bun Kabab. It was chicken shami kabab with chutney and onions on a nice kaiser bun. Overall the taste was great; however, it was slightly dry.
We particularly enjoyed the Chicken Club Sandwich and Copper Kettle Special Chicken Steak. We anticipate visiting again and trying other items on the menu. The owner did indicate that they strictly use hand-slaughtered meat. The owner also mentioned something along the lines of it being the franchise of the original Copper Kettle.
