With a no-nonsense approach to cooking, Piri Piri prides itself on offering fast and tasty food that doesn’t scrimp on quality. While their grilled chicken is the main star, this restaurant chain also has other delish burgers, beef grill and a selection of salad. We came one afternoon to have a feast…
The casual and rustic atmosphere was welcoming. Piri Piri has several branches across Bangkok. Location is key, as we all say - and this chain has got it - superb locations within Siam Paragon, Emporium, Terminal 21 and their latest opening in Trendy Building on Sukhumvit Soi 13.
We started the meal with the must-have Piri Piri Chicken, cooked the Portuguese way. The piping hot fries were a welcoming sight, we downed it with gulps of ice-cold Coke (or soft drink of your choice) and happiness rushed in. We had a great time sharing the various plates of chicken. Lemon & Herb Chicken was most memorable. 4 distinct bottles of sauce were available at every table. Hot Chilli, Thai Salsa, Sweet Chilli and Extra Hot - the last one is surely not for the faint hearted.
It was also possible to swap out the fries and have a bowl of fried rice, to accompany your chicken. Beef lovers - move towards the Grilled Meat section in the menu where Tenderloin 200grams kicks off the selection. Combo options also aplenty for anyone wanting to mix and match and have a portion of seafood with your chicken. We tried the prawns and sea bass, interchanging them with different sauces! Oh, what a great lunch!
