Australia's Portuguese flame-grilled chicken chain - Oporto has opened its first-ever outlet at Holland Village in Singapore. With over 160 stores in Australia and New Zealand, Oporto brings an array of healthy fast food of flame-grilled chicken, wraps and burgers using fresh chicken, paired with their irresistible specialty sauces.
Original Chilli Half Chicken 3.8/5
Porto's flame-grilled chicken comes in Quarter ($6.90), Half ($11.90) and Whole ($21.90). Diners have a choice of Original Chilli or Lemon & Herb Flavour. The chicken is tender and juicy, with a nice hint of smokiness.
Lemon & Herb Half Chicken 4/5
Between the two sauces, I preferred the Lemon & Herb over the Original Chilli. The lemon & herb seems more balanced and complements the poultry better. The original chilli has a bit of heat at the end and it was a bit salty too.
Oprego Burger 4/5
Besides the flame-grilled chicken, the menu is offers two different type of burgers with fresh grilled 100% chicken fillets - Oprego Burger and Bondi Burger. It comes in three different patty sizes, Single ($5.90), Double ($7.90) and Triple ($9.90).
Bondi Burger 4/5
The Oprego Burger comprises of chicken fillets, crispy lettuce, fresh tomato, cheese, mayo and tangy Prego sauce, while the Bondi Burger is the spicy version with chicken fillets, crispy lettuce, cheese, creamy mayo and original chilli sauce. Once again the chicken fillet is really tender and juicy. However I am a little disappointed that the chicken fillet was not charred enough, lacking that smokiness I was expecting.
Chicken Taca Bowl 3/5
There are also Salad and Wraps on the menu. You can have a satisfying Chicken Taca Bowl ($9.90) that comes with lettuce, crunchy slaw, grilled chicken rappa and choice of sauces. There are a total of six sauces (original chilli, lemon & herb, garlic, mayo, prego and bbq) to choose from.
Chicken Rappa 3.5/5
A good to go choice or something for a quick meal is the Chicken Rappa ($7.90). I preferred this to the salad as I can get everything in one bite.
Diners can also make it into a meal with an addition of $2.50 (1 Regular Side and Drink) or $3.50 (1 Large Side and Drink). There are a total of six sides to choose from. They are Spicy Rice, White Rice, Chips, Crunchy Slaw and Grilled Corn. For something light, there are snacks such as the Bondi Bites, Wings, Spicy Chicken Bites, Potato Bites and Chilli Cheese Chips. I like the spicy chicken bites and potato bites.
