Nobody does it better than Barcelos – the Flame Grilled Chicken with choice of Peri Peri sauces.
Named after a Portuguese town, Barcelos is famous worldwide for it’s signature Flame Grilled Chicken and choice of Peri Peri sauces (mild, very, supa). Also on the menu are colored burgers – red, white and black, which are as much a treat to look at as they are to the palate. With the latest outlet open at DLF Place, Saket, Barcelos is all set to woo the patrons, once again!
Nestled near the food court on the second floor of DLF Place Mall, Saket, the restaurant provides a casual place to enjoy the best flame grilled chicken. They have got a huge area, which clearly reflects in the placement of the tables. The service is good, given we just had to signal our servers for anything we needed. They were around all the time, but never once we felt bothered by the presence!
We like to stick to their signature dishes – Flame Grilled Chicken and burgers, that’s what they are known for. Make a choice of 1/4, 1/2 or full chicken, based on your appetite and you will never regret it. The choice of sauce and sides (one/two) is there, and we like to stick with veri peri, the supa peri is too hot! We also like the tangy lemon sauce that they offer. It is the juiciest chicken you will have, with the marination just right. The juicy meat with crisp skin is all you can ask for in a grilled chicken, and Barcelos does it just right. We have never had a chicken breast so juicy as Barcelos manages to do it.
The menu otherwise is vast. We also tried the Portuguese Delight Cheesy Chicken Espetada, which is presented very nicely. Although we loved the flavors, we found the chicken pieces to be fibrous, which was a striking contrast from the Flame Grilled Chicken.
Burgers is another thing Barcelos is known for and if you think what’s different – they serve red, black and white buns, in addition to the regular brown buns. If the choice becomes difficult, go for the sampler – a choice of 4 V/NV mini burgers, one of each color, that is :). We did a customized order of 2 burgers each of veg. & chicken and loved them. We didn’t quite like the white burger, since there is coconut, otherwise the other 3 were amazing.
Barcelos also does some very nice Molecular Drinks. We tried Kiwi Cooler and liked it. There are other quirky options to choose from.
