LLast February 9, 2017 was the opening of the Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken and Sauce Bar at Meerea High Street, North Reclamation Area, Mandaue City. Yes, this would be my second time blogging about a restaurant in that new strip mall. Peri-Peri Chicken is named after the African Birdâ€™s Eye Chili discovered many centuries ago by Portuguese explorers in search of the famed spice route. I had the firsthand experience on the famous chicken and some of their dishes. Let me tell you why youâ€™ll love them and if you have tried it, you will continue to do so.Â
I TASTED PERI
For me, the chicken itself that is marinated for a day doesnâ€™t need a sauce. I am the kind of person who prefers food that doesn’t need one. The Peri-Peri chicken has the taste of the traditional roasted chicken that we Filipinos love and an added flavor that the African herbs and spices give.
8 SHADES OF PERI
Butâ€¦ well. We cannot deny we also love freakinâ€™ sauces! Haha! The difference between Peri-Peri Chicken among the competitors is their sauces. They have eight. The sauces add a new dimension to the flavor. We can have fun trying out the different choices and eventually pick our favorite one that suits our taste.
THE 8 SAUCES
Ka Tukaâ€™s Honey Pinakurat â€“ The Filipino Spiced Vinegar
Hen Dynastyâ€™s Hoisin Sesame â€“ A Sweet and Tangy Sauce
Poulet Vous Cajun Remoulade â€“ Spiced Mayonnaise Dip
Apacheeâ€™kn Mesquite BBQ â€“ Smoky, Sweet and Tasty Dip
Tokyo Toriâ€™s Sweet Soy â€“ Teriyaki Style Sauce
Sheik Chicâ€™s Harissa Exotica â€“ An Exotic Blend of Spices
Count Cluckulaâ€™s Garlic Brew â€“ A Garlic Sauce
Fowl-Mouthed Chili Peppaâ€™- For Spicy-Loving Friends
Their main star is no other than their spit-grilled chicken but they also serve chicken cooked in different ways from salads, sandwiches, and appetizers.
For a full on treat, they also offer BBQ Back Ribs, truffle-based pasta Tartufo, pizzas, milkshakes, and desserts.
VALUE PER PERI
I wouldnâ€™t say Peri-Peri servings are cheap but I would say, you aren’t paying for nothing. Â Their whole chicken, priced at most 650 PHP, comes with 4 sides. You can choose what sides do you want to pair your chicken. And I know most of us will choose rice. Haha! Kidding aside, their servings are huge and are definitely “a value per peri”
