Press & Accolades
A selection of Casa do Frango press and industry award highlights.
"Quite simply, the best chicken and chips in town."
"Skin bronzed and frazzled in parts, meat smoky from the wood grill, the chillied baste a joyful smack in the chops. You know when you've been Frango'd."
“It’s a gorgeous space, all wood floors and bleached brick and huge windows."
"There’s no such thing as an ideal restaurant for me now. But on the hottest day of the year, polishing off a home-made pastel de nata and a last glug of vinho, gorgeous Casa do Frango comes pretty close."
“London needs this delightful piri-piri chicken joint.”
"Do we really need another piri-piri chicken joint here? The answer is, yes, we do. We need this one. It’s delightful. Casa do Frango occupies a huge, airy space by Borough Market. It is effortless shabby chic, of the sort set designers strain to create."
“A lovely clash of flavours: busy and loud and chaotic."
"If you’re not a ‘cheeky Nando’s’ kind of person, go here for piri-piri chicken. African rice was a lovely clash of flavours: busy and loud and chaotic, a carnival in the mouth."
"London's Portuguese food scene is having a moment."
"The space’s stand-out original features like the vaulted ceiling, large arched windows and the naked brickwork provided a good starting point for a look that takes its cues from Portugal’s heritage."
“'Chicken house' vastly undersells what’s happening here.”
"We tried chewy potato sourdough served warm with whipped butter that was topped with chunky flakes of salt, smoky grilled chorizo which left a trail of scarlet oil in the dollop of black olive mayo that came with it, and Piri-Piri Prawns that packed a garlicky punch."
“Truly authentic Algarvian piri-piri chicken in London.”
"Casa do Frango has made a name for itself as the only restaurant serving truly authenthic Algarvian piri-piri chicken in London. What’s happening at Casa do Frango is pretty unique, and London is lapping it up."
"Blandness, fortunately, is the last thing on the menu.”
"Blandness, fortunately, is the last thing on the menu at this restaurant. Bermondsey posh-piri-piri joint Casa do Frango is in fact so appealing that two critics find themselves visiting within a few days."
"Casa do Frango do piri-piri chicken. Properly."
"Pull up a pew at their gorgeously airy, whitewashed space filled with greenery and little decorative winks (the bar is inspired by the famous trams in Lisbon), and tuck into lip-smacking hunks of perfectly seasoned chargrilled chicken."
