I live close to Ilford Lane in East London which is home to loads of halal restaurants. Recently a new restaurant opened up called @edenperiperiilford and I was invited to pop along
They specialise in peri peri chicken, which I found a bold move as there’s the very popular and a personal favourite Franzos which is only a stone’s throw away! So another option for people
I ordered a mix of things off the menu, my usual whole chicken with some sides, chicken skewers and 2 burgers, beef and lamb. Along with a few smoothies and a shake. The whole chicken (£12.99 with 2 sides) itself was very tender and juicy, even the chicken breast was juicy, very easy to cook that too dry, but they did a good job. So I’ll give it a 7/10, happy to eat that again. Just felt there was some flavour lacking in the chicken, but still not bad for what it is
The chicken skewers were dry and just brushed with sauce, I didn’t like them. I knew the burgers were going to be cooked on the flame grill, a cooking method that I don’t really like as it dries out the meat and you lose a lot of flavour. The burgers were okay, I personally wouldn’t order them again as they weren’t to my taste. But I know its still a style of burger that the average person likes
When it comes to a “Fake Nandos” there are a few other places that I rank higher. However, this place is great for families, its spacious, affordable, clean and is fully halal. Swipe to pic for menu and prices.
I was invited to review here and meal was complimentary. Words, as always honest.
