There is a place that we drove by everyday on our commute home that would be filling the air with tons of smoke and great scents of barbecue. We always tried to pinpoint where this smoke was coming from. First its tough because at the same time Im trying to avoid multiple cars trying to run me off the road… and for kicks a few double occupied cell phone talkers on vespas squeezing in between the Mario Andrettis around me. Second its tough to pinpoint these places because they are very elusive. There are no signs or distinguishable features from one building to the next for the most part. Not like in the States where you have a very well lit sign and a corresponding parking lot. One day it was clear as day when we saw the big Red Devil outside… next was trying to find parking.
The Red Devil as we call it (and come to find out other people call it this as well) is a Sicilian style fast food place. No seating available. Glass cases filled with all sorts of very good looking food.. all to go. The star of the show are the rotisserie chickens that they cook right outside by the red devil. These chickens blow away the Costco chickens with some extra flavoring that I couldn’t figure out right away, but I found in the cavity of the bird after eating. So for those of you with the Costco chickens as a staple of your American diet we got you covered out here… all without the annoying oversized shopping carts and 3 lb jugs of mayonnaise. You just have to walk in and say ” Un pollo!” and your good to go for 4 or 5 euro. I also got the artichokes, which are growing in many of the farmlands around our work location. It was a great combo that I recommend trying at the Red Devil.
Below are the pictures from my first time in the Red Devil, we have been back a couple times since.
