Bangkok Foodie: Piri-Piri Flaming Chicken, Emporium

I love chicken. And when you love chicken and you live in Thailand, there is one name you know: Piri-Piri Flaming Chicken. Simple, cheap and hearty. The Portuguese style establishment is worthy to be coo-coo for.


How does it look like?
The emporium branch looks similar to its Paragon sister. Picture stepping in the kitchen of an estranged Portuguese auntie.

How do they treat you?
Service is fast when it comes to getting your order taken and your food served. But it is somehow difficult to get your check. There are a lot of people in the kitchen but not enough waiters.


How is the food?
It is rustic but copious. Just how your mother’s food should taste. Sadly I’m allergic to their Piri-Piri specialty but I really enjoy their Bombay chicken. Sadly though, they don’t dress their sauce as generously as they portion their meat.

How much?
Here are the prices:

If you love chicken and you enjoy a relaxed and family-style atmosphere, you won’t be disappointed.
