A new restaurant opened a couple of weeks ago in Palo Alto. They must have signed the least just before SIP as this is such an uncertain times to open any eating spots.
But here they are, The Port of Peri Peri is part of the larger Peri Peri chain that originated from Chicago. I first learned about their opening when they had somebody handing out flyers at the Cal Ave Farmer’s Market. They already had a couple of locations in California, including one in the Bay Area in Fremont.
Peri Peri serves Nando’s style chicken, I was told. Nando’s is a South African fast food chain that operates mostly around DC and Chicago in the US. I have never had Nando’s or the Peri Peri sauce before. Their chicken is flame grilled with the sauce made with the African peri peri pepper slathered on top.
Chicken was succulent. Better chicken than the typical factory farmed one with loads of dry meat. I’d get it again.
Also got a couple of natas. Natas were decent. Though they probably have been sitting too long since the crust was soggy. More sweet than the Macanese version.
Fries with dry peri peri seasoning.
Additional sauces. Although for me just the default peri peri sauce is sufficient.
