Yes, the weekend will forever be reserved for roast chicken. That’s just the law of this land. But, there’s something distinctly satisfying about eating piri piri chicken on a weeknight. Casa Do Frango’s half chicken comes with either piri piri, oregano, or lemon and garlic glaze for £9.50. Their sides include batatas fritas, African chorizo rice, and fresh salads for a fiver and under, as well as some very affordable small plates, like piri piri grilled prawns. They’ve also got a selection of cocktails if you’re looking to transform your casual school night chicken-fest into something a bit more boozy.
