September saw the opening of the fourth store of home of delicious Portuguese chicken and prawns, Senhor Peri Peri. The store opened in the bustling precinct of Melrose Arch and it is their first Halaal store.
Senhor Peri Peri offers Joburgers a modern twist on Portuguese cuisine. Their unique take on well-loved favourites is sure to have diners coming back for more. From the sought-after Peri Peri Chicken to succulent Mozambican-style prawns and hearty burgers there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
It all started with the sauce
Founder and inspiration Jorge Calisto was born in a small northern town in Portugal but spent most of his life in the South of Joburg. His love for experimentation led him to create a table Peri Peri sauce made with the famous Bird’s Eye Chilli. Next, came a full range of traditional sugar-free sauces made in a variety of flavours: Lemon & Herb, Medium, Mild, Hot and for the very brave, X-Hot.
Jorge’s love for food and travel led to his exploration of the colourful and vibrant country of Mozambique, where he fell in love with the culture, fresh cuisine and striking colours. The new Senhor Peri Peri eatery pays tribute to Mozambique, with pops of colour throughout the eatery. Neutral features such as the cork and circular wooden, light-fittings complement the brightly detailed wall mural, which encapsulates the authenticity, warmth and personality of the eatery.
The Senhor Peri Peri eatery, which always stays true to its roots and welcomes all diners as a part of its family, is the brainchild of Jorge Calisto and the Fournews Group, industry leaders with over 24 years’ experience. “We are extremely excited about the launch of our first Halaal Senhor Peri Peri,” says brand manager, Varina Singh. “We think our concept of the modern Portuguese eatery will bring a unique and flavoursome experience to Melrose Arch- it’s the perfect place of high spirits and love for all things Peri Peri,” Singh adds.
