A long-established outpost of Portugal in south London, serving authentic dishes to expats and Anglophones alike.
A home from home to the local Portuguese, Grelha D’Ouro is a lot like a living room. The clientele is varied, the long menu is chockful of appealing Portuguese home-style dishes. Starters are divided roughly between fish/shellfish and meat/chicken, and include such unfamiliar items as chicken gizzards and pig's ear alongside standards such as caldo verde and grilled sardines. Mains are equally evenly divided, and there are a few dishes serving two, including some cooked in the cataplana (something like the Portuguese equivalent of a Spanish paella. Weekends are likely to be particularly lively, with multi-generational Portuguese families sharing pots of soupy seafood rice and slow-cooked feijoada.
