Best Piri Piri Chicken in T.O.?

Ok lets start this one. Where do you think sells the best/most authentic Piri Piri chicken in T.O. ? I used to live in portugal and am hankering for some good chicken.

    1. Oh man -- I LOVED the frango no churrasco in Portugal. There was a place in Albuferia, called O Alberto that made a Platonic version of grilled chicken. I'm hallucinating about it now...

      The closest I've found to that style of chicken in Toronto is at Bairrada Churrasqueira, but it's neck and neck with Piri Piri...

      1. I like Piri Piri on Dupont to go and eat, but for take out I prefer Cantanhede O Bairradino, 662 Lansdowne Ave, just south of Dupont. You can have bbq or the churrasco style of chicken.

        Say hi to Carlos!

            Hmm forget his last name. Cant miss him, mustache, curly hair. He catered my wedding actually. Fantastic job. After that I tried his restaurant as was very happy.

            Anyway, nice to go into some of the small family run places and be greeted by a friendly face, and have a chat. He does with it everyone.

              i will definatly be checking that place out and i will pass on the "hello" if i get the chance.

        1. Bairrada Churrasqueira Grill, 1002 College is good. Not the best but, I like it for its back patio. They usually have porcoa roasting on the grill and give it out free sometimes.

          1. Piri-Piri Grill House is good.

            I've also enjoyed Churrasco Villa, they're grilled squid was cooked nicely as well.
