Lunch at Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken and Sauce Bar

Last Saturday was the opening of S&R Nuvali so we decided to do our grocery there since we will be attending a party in Arcadia Paseo de Sta Rosa. But after wasting almost 2 hours in traffic and falling in line, we realized it is not worth to wait. Honestly, I’ve never experienced that long lines during Member’s Treat. 

So to kill our time we went to Solenad 3, it was my first time there and I was happy because it has more stores and restaurants compared to Solenad 1 and Solenad 2. It was time for lunch, my husband suggested Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken and Sauce Bar, his officemate said na masarap daw dun. 

Actually, I was hesitant at first because we will be attending a birthday party in Max’s so chicken na naman. Pero tamad na kami maghanap pa so we tried it, we were lucky that there was available table for us kahit sa labas na lang.

We browsed the menu, since the name of the restaurant is Peri-Peri chicken we ordered chicken. We ordered 3 Bahia which includes 1/4 peri-peri chicken + 1 side dish P180 + SCThere is soup and beverage all you can at P99 with a minimum food purchase of P250. 

I was surprised to see the chicken kasi ang liit niya and ang dami ng java rice. I find it expensive considering the serving, rice is considered as side dish and no drinks included. 

In fairness, the chicken is good, it is different from other roasted or grilled chicken that you have tasted. It is tender and flavorful. According to their website, Peri- Peri Chicken is trimmed of excess fat and marinated 24 hours using best African-Portuguese mix which is from Africa for fuller flavor, inside and out. It is spit-fired over charcoal to bring out its smoky flavor and complemented by sauces derived from Peri-Peri. 

They gave us this plate of 3 sauces, I can’t remember the name of the sauces but my husband like the middle sauce.  Peri Peri or Piri Piri refers to African bird’s eye chilis that they use for their sauces. 


  1. The chicken itself looked packed with flavor. I bet it's more tasty with the sauces! Cool!

  2. I haven't tried Peri-Peri, thanks for the review. When we eat out, we try to order other dishes than chicken, because at home, more often than not, we have a chicken dish.

    1. As much as I would like to avoid chicken, my son loves chicken. Pero ako, nagsasawa rin. :)

  3. The food looks deliciou and the presentation is unique.

  4. We are planning to go to S&R this Saturday. I will be renewing our membership there and look for Christmas baskets too, hehe. Anyway, the chicken looks flavorful. Nakakatakam :)
