5 Rotisserie Meats to Try



There is just something about meat on a rotisserie that makes us hungry. Keeping things juicy and delicious, here are five cuts that can satisfy your carnivorous side this week.

Charcut Prime Rib

Definitely a classic here. Order a tender cut of this prime rib fresh off the rotisserie at a minimum of eight ounces and go up from there if you're extra hungry. Served with horseradish and roasted garlic. (899 Centre St. S., 403-984-2180, charcut.com, @charcut)

Gaucho Brazilian Barbecue Pork Loin

There is many a slice of meat rotating away on the huge fiery set-up here, but settle with some juicy pork over the lunch hour with a side of manioc wedges (yucca topped with parmesan and oregano). (5920 Macleod Tr. S.W., 403-454-9119, brazilianbbq.ca, @gauchobbq)

The Libertine Pig Roast

If you are happening by this popular pub on Stephen Avenue on Wednesdays at 5 p.m., you can partake in this pig roast for free. If you want to include friends and family and make a night of it, they can roast up a pig just for you for around $25/person, including all the fixings!

Notable's roasted lamb is deliciously tender and rich.

Notable Leg of Lamb

The chicken is the the star of the rotisserie here (especially since you can take it to-go!), but pop by on a Tuesday to try a slice or two of the leg of lamb with an order of potato gratin on the side. (4611 Bowness Rd. N.W., 403-288-4372, notabletherestaurant.ca, @notablecalgary)

The family combo at Pio Peruvian features the tender rotisserie chicken.

Pio Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken

A secret family spice rub on tender, rotisserie chicken, served with sides like fried plantains with feta cheese will make you wonder why you ever chose to opt for the Colonel's greasy, battered variation. (2929 Sunridge Way N.E., 403-681-7378, pioperu.com, @pioperu)
