Whilst charcoal-grilled piri piri chicken undoubtedly takes centre stage at Casa do Frango’s new Shoreditch restaurant, guests can also sip on a selection of Portuguese wines, signature Casa cocktails, and Portuguese sharing snacks known as ‘petiscos’; all of which goes on at Bar da Casa, located on the ground floor.
Put together by London-based designers A-nrd studio—who also weaved their magic at the London Bridge outpost—Casa do Frango Shoreditch evokes nostalgia of the sun-soaked Algarve and its beloved café culture; from the bright dining room graced with lashings of natural light (thanks to wrap around floor-to-ceiling windows), to bespoke hand-painted tiles by a local Portuguese artist and majestic reclaimed parquet flooring and lime-washed walls.
A welcoming space set over three floors, guests will encounter an open plan Pasteleria, from where several varieties of Portugal’s lauded custard tarts, the ‘pastéis de nata’, are served. The open plan kitchen—where the fiery piri piri chicken is prepared upholding Algarvian cooking traditions—is framed by hand-glazed tiles, and enables diners to watch the chefs cooking over wood-fired grills from the comfort of their tables.
Influenced by the very best of Portugal, if you’re a fan of piri piri chicken, Portuguese architecture, and their exceedingly good wine, get yourself hotfooting to Casa do Frango Shoreditch. London’s hottest neighbourhood just got a whole lot hotter.
