Brightly-lit and comfortable, Inigo offers reasonably-priced roasted chickens (grain-fed and free-range), as well as “other species” (as listed on their menu). Everything is separately-priced, allowing you to craft your own meal.
I opted for a 1/4 chicken (dark meat) sided with the candied-beet and apple salad. This was a nice and light lunch. The spicing on the chicken wasn’t overly strong and the skin had an okay crispness. This won’t blow your mind, but it’s a solid chicken meal at $3.75 for a leg (a whole chicken will cost you $12). I really enjoyed my beet and apple salad and would get that again as a snack.
I pictured their winter minestra (bacon, turnip, cabbage) soup as a chowder, and this was full-on soup. Tasty and warming, this was a nice accompaniment to my chicken.
I ordered the braised beef cheeks to-go for lunch the next day, and was also surprised that it was less stew-like and more soupy than I had imagined. The beans and small potatoes I paired with it were right out of a steam-tray and nothing exciting.
Overall, this place makes for a solid place in the neighbourhood. Worth a visit if you’re in the area and wanting a light meal.
