When I was visiting the home province, I made sure that I stopped in to see my friend Dixie Lee.
Dixie Lee is a small(ish) chain of fried chicken restaurants founded in Canada that makes delicious chicken with 9 selected spices.
The usual Dixie Lee sign shows the lovely Dixie Lee looking for all the world like an Asian French maid.
Apart from the great taste, another wonderful selling feature is that the chicken they use actually seems to be chicken. You can identify the small to medium sized pieces as parts from a, gasp, chicken.
My sister told me about a location I should visit not only for the fine chicken but for the sign. The store sign is fine but the one in the parking lot finds Dixie looking like maybe she's been working a bit too much overtime.
Sis refers to her in this incarnation as Picasso Dixie.
