The idealisation of the Barcelos rooster derived from a legend concerning a Galego who was sentenced to hang, despite his protests of innocence. In a last-minute appeal to the judge, who was having dinner at the time, the condemned man made a bold statement: if his claim of innocence was true, the roasted rooster, resting on the judge’s plate would get up and crow. Suddenly, a glorious scarlet- plumed cockerel rose from the plate crowing loud and long. The man was acquitted of course!
While the re-telling of the legend varies, offering different versions, Barcelos Flame Grilled Chicken has written a singularly modern story of its own. As with any journey that starts out with one small step, Barcelos opened its first store in Pretoria, South Africa in 1993. Using recipes mastered by the Portuguese hundreds of years ago, our flame grilled flavours became so popular that we franchised the business in 1998. Since then we have opened outlets in 16 countries including South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana, Namibia, Ghana, Nigeria, Sudan, Canada, United Kingdom, Dubai, Mauritius, Maldives, Pakistan, India, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and growing.
Modern fast-lane-living has left us with little time to enjoy good, old-fashioned traditions and ideals. This is equally true about food and eating habits, therefore we at Barcelos strive continually to find a balance between the traditional, healthy home-style cuisine and the fast lane demands of the modern world. Our fast food restaurants specialize in the traditional way of serving healthy and spicy, flame-grilled chicken, prepared as authentically as it was mastered by the ancient Portuguese chefs.
Today, Barcelos, with its roots in culture, tradition and history, offers a relaxed and convenient dining experience for a diverse range of cultures.
As important as the Barcelos legend is, so is the Marinade recipe used for Barcelos chicken, which is so old its origins cannot be traced. Using the finest quality chickens, Barcelos chickens are marinated for 24 hours and then flame grilled to absolute perfection.
As with most brands, the Barcelos identity has undergone some transformations over the years in order to remain a key player in the casual dining/quick service restaurant industry.
With our fame and flavour rooted firmly in tradition, authentic recipes and friendly service, Barcelos is a forward-thinking company, seeking to grow and establish our brand globally.
Our ability to satisfy various cultures and tastes is evidence that we have mastered the recipe for success and growth. Join us in our journey as Barcelos expands all over the world to ensure that the legend lives on….
