If your taste buds don’t mind a bit of Portuguese spicing up every now and then, then you’ll want to put Veri Peri on your dining out menu.

The restaurant that’s been serving authentic Portuguese food since 2013 is opening its first UAE outlet in Deira on Friday, December 30.

First established in the United Kingdom, the quick-service restaurant has grown from strength to strength, opening an additional branch in the UK before marking its footprint in the Middle East — first in Saudi Arabia followed now by its Dubai location.

All produce is fresh and locally sourced, and the menu serves up signature dishes like the Beef Espetada, the Veri Peri Sizzling Steak and the Cataplana. Also included are salads, soups, burgers, wraps, pastas and a number of vegetarian dishes.

Apart from the range of tasty meals available, Veri Peri has also created its own unique range of Veri Peri sauces, with six flavours, ranging from spicy to flaming hot and including delicious variants such as garlic, lemon and herb and lime and coriander, each dish can be ‘Perified’.

Fahad Abdullah, Veri Peri’s marketing boss, is thrilled about the restaurant’s expansion into the UAE.

“We are very excited to be launching our first outlet in the UAE as we believe the market is the right fit and that our offering will suit the variety of taste buds present in Dubai.

“We are a family-friendly, casual dining establishment and our extensive menu ensures that we have something for everyone. We want to offer guests an authentically Portuguese culinary experience that will leave them licking their lips and coming back for more.”

While Veri Peri in Deira will start serving on December 30 from 12pm to 12am daily, there are plans to open a second branch in Motor City in 2017. Foodies can dine-in, takeaway and or order delivery. For reservations or delivery, call 04 2638 638.
