The wait is finally over! Oporto, the legendary Australian restaurant known for its equally famous fresh and flavourful flame grilled chicken, has officially opened the doors to its first Middle East eatery located at Dubai Festival City Mall.
A combination of Australia’s feel-good vibes with a culinary blend of Portuguese and Southern European influences, is how Oporto has become a recognised name for adventure and shared moments that tantalise the tastebuds and sizzle the soul. The Oporto experience is built on celebrating authentic moments together, while diving into a delectably delightful array of fiery flame grilled chicken, burgers and sides. The classic and unpretentious menu features many Oporto flavours and favourites, including their original recipe chilli sauce, their classic flamed grilled Portuguese chicken and last but certainly not least, their celebrated signature Bondi burger, invented back in 1986 by Oporto’s founder and Portuguese immigrant, Antonio Cerqueira. The Bondi burger is an epic feast of flavour that has been made exactly the same way since its creation, with two freshly grilled 100% chicken breast fillets, crisp lettuce, cheese, creamy mayo and Oporto's legendary Original Chilli sauce. Flavour remains at the heart and soul of every meal, with the quality of its strictly grilled, never fried chicken, a testament to the brands journey that has now traversed continents and the test of time, to remain a simple selection of feel-good bites and snacks.
The UAE’s inaugural Oporto transports both old fans and new to a socially cool yet uplifting dine-in experience. Spread over 2000 sq ft, the restaurant can host over 65 guests seated around the indoor and outdoor tables, providing a comfortable and intimate setting to enjoy a guilt-free meal. The laidback atmosphere is complimented by bright and inviting interiors, designed to evoke the brand's heritage and its evolution to the Middle East audience. A unique wall is also dedicated solely to Oporto’s signature chilli sauce, with row upon row of jars proudly displaying one of the trademark tastes that makes Oporto, Oporto. Bold tones, colours and expansive beach art showcase a visual feast, while equally bold flavours, spices and experiences retain their historical roots, offering authentic, shared moments and something for everyone, simply cooked yet always bursting with flavour.
