Piri Piri Portuguese

A friend of a friend recommends the chicken dishes at Piri Piri. Several times I pass by the restaurant in Siam Paragon but refrain from getting in because I read "flaming hot" and I'm no fan of hot, spicy food. But one weekend after church I wandered around looking for something to eat. There's an advantage when you're not that hungry while restaurant-hunting. You get to vary the restaurants you go to. I was curious and didn't want to miss what Piri-piri is famous for: flaming hot chicken.

No smoke came off my ears and nostrils - a discovery that tells me it's OK to go back. I love how fresh the lettuce and capsicum strips are. The menu presentation is charming, and that's great in my books. There's a little story in it which makes up for leisure reading while waiting for your order. So I learned Piri Piri is Portuguese / Mediterranean cuisine. There are small pictures of ancient sea vessels around the menu which remind me of the Portuguese explorer Magellan. And yes, this was a yummy brunch experience.

There are two Piri-Piri restaurants in Thailand, both are in Bangkok:

Emporium, 5th Floor
622, Soi 24 Sukhumvit Rd, Klong Toei Nua, Wattana 10110

Piri Piri Siam Paragon, Ground Floor
991/1 Rama 1 Rd Pathumwan 10330

Business Hours: 10.00 - 21.00 every day
Price Range: 200 - 1,000 Bht / 6 - 33 USD
