Roasting Jack’s: Gobsmackingly delicious versions of the rotisserie chicken

Sep 12, 2019, Author: Candice May

Roasting Jack’s’ clever take on rotisserie chicken has us craving dishes beyond standard browned fowl. Get your wet wipes ready, people – it’s time to feast your eyes on tasty birds boasting a crispy, flavourful outer layer while oozing juicy goodness on the inside – a result of being cooked slowly and carefully over low heat. 


The new rotisserie tucked away upstairs at The Wedge Shopping Centre in Morningside offers everything from double-dredged drumettes to lunchtime chicken sandwiches – think rotisserie chickens, chicken breasts, burgers, chicken wings, salads, sides and baked treats. We suggest popping into this casual spot where you’ll stare at the golden-brown chickens being roasted on the rotisserie machine while sipping your drink for a quick lunch or dinner with family or friends. 

For starters, order the mouthwatering batter-fried blooming onion that’s crispy on the outside and tender on the inside with RJ Roasted Garlic Mayo (or the RJ Hot Mayo if you’d prefer a fiery kick). If you’re in need of a drink on the side, you’ll be happy to know that Roasting Jack’s also serves a selection of beer and wine, including Mad Giant Lager on tap and Killer Hop craft beer plus Brampton and Franschhoek Cellar wines. 


Moving onto mains, you have to try the venerable half rotisserie chicken, or the tequila and lime chicken sandwich prepared with pulled rotisserie chicken, tequila, lime, chilli, corn salsa, avocado and cheddar cheese and served with RJ House Mayo on a freshly baked baguette. End the meal on a sweet note with a smooth and creamy gingerbread milkshake – it’s sure to delight both the young and the young at heart. 

You can also pick up a takeaway roast bird from Roasting Jack’s when you’re too lazy to cook or are looking for something to replace the KFC bucket on the dinner table. Simply give them a call to order.
