Welcome to our new restaurant, Casa do Frango
Opening at Nova from 26th June!
At the heart of the menu is Frango Piri-Piri. True to its origins and drawing on co-founder Marco Mendes’ Algarvian heritage, Casa do Frango use an age-old Piri-Piri recipe, perfected over time; half a chicken is grilled over an open-fire, stoked with wood charcoal to create the unmistakable flavour and char that is paramount to the dish, dubbed by critics as “the best chicken and chips in town.”
Alongside the main event, traditional sharing plates draw from some of Portugal’s most iconic dishes – Iberico Pork Croquettes, Bacalhau Fritters, Grilled Chorizo and Piri-Piri Garlic Prawns – accompanied by sides that are essential to every Casa experience – signature African Rice made with Portuguese Carolino rice, chorizo, crispy chicken skin and plantain; Batatas Fritas; and a crisp, zesty Casa Slaw with a sherry vinegar & mustard dressing, the perfect foil to Frango Piri-Piri. New for the summer season, the menu will also feature Crispy Fried Green Beans, served with Piri-Piri mayo (a take on a traditional Portuguese dish ‘Peixinhos da Horta’, meaning “little fishes from the garden”); Baby Gem Salad with chargrilled peppers and sweet white onion; and a summery Heritage Tomato Salad. To finish, the national icon Pastéis de Nata (made fresh on-site every day) and a nostalgic favourite, Chocolate Mousse, a classic end to any meal in the Algarve’s famous chicken restaurants.
