The Grilled Chicken Palace in Hillside, NJ

It’s been a while since I featured a food post and I thought I’d share with you my venture to the Grilled Chicken Palace on Hillside Avenue in Hillside, NJ over the weekend.

Owned by this Sistah I went to High School with, she runs a pretty impressive take-out joint to satisfy your every taste bud. A friendly staff of professionals, who are “on point” and courteous, I was shocked when we walked in and were asked “If it was our first time there?” and when we replied “Yes“, we were told we were going to get a taste test. Well the food was OUT OF THIS WORLD!

This is not a soul food restaurant in my opinion, the food had more of a Caribbean flair. They had everything but the kitchen sink on the menu; from rice and beans, to condoles and rice, from collard greens to a stir fried mixed vegetables of cabbage, broccoli, zucchini and carrots.

The home of a variety of chicken and I don’t eat meat but you can wrap your appetite around her Palace chicken, curry chicken, pineapple chicken or drunken chicken, just to name a few; each meat had its own flare. And the choices of fish are endless, from the Terriyaki grilled salmon to the lobster and shrimp pasta with spinach. The menu is ever-changing and “all of that” with a big fat bag of chips!

You can “top your meal off” with any of her desert selections; “Red Velvet cake” “Sweet potato cheese cake” “CoconutΒ cake” or the ‘Chocolate chip mouse cake”.

With a full serviced staff, an awesome chef and a packed house, you won’t go wrong to satisfy your cravings, so bring your appetite because this place is “off the hook!” and sure to please.

I wanted to feature the owner and former school mate as a guest on “Conversations Of A Sistah” during “Women’s History Month” but she’s too shy to pull it off….so you’ll just have to visit the restaurant and have the “best food experience” for yourself.

If you’re ever in Hillside, NJ make your way to Hillside Avenue because The Grilled Chicken Palace is way more than just chicken but it lives up to its name.
