Proving that there's more to the Algarve than package holidays and striking red cliffs, Casa do Frango has been winning hearts the city over since it opened in London Bridge. Now, the restaurant is planning on opening another site east, this time heading towards Shoreditch.
Promising the same Portuguese cuisine, the new spot will replicate the fiery menu found in London Bridge, with items such as African rice, charred cauliflower, and - of course - the legendary chargrilled piri piri chicken. There will also be some new treats to tuck into, including acorn-fed black pork and beef cheek stew.
Shoreditch promises just as dreamy interiors as its sister site; an upstairs dining room will be flooded with light thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, and stand-out pieces take the form of hand-glazed tiles, reclaimed wooden flooring, and lime-washed tiles.
Downstairs, on the ground floor, there will be a dark oak bar serving beers that have been created with an Algarvian brewery, a long list of Portuguese wines, and spirits such as Medronho (fig liqueur). The icing on the cake looks set to be the open plan bakery which will be serving custard tarts and other baked goods throughout the day.
