Piri Pica makes you feel like you’re at a backyard BBQ, with sides like grilled corn and chili. It looks a little like a model restaurant for a future fast casual mini-chain, which is neither good or bad, but the big U-shaped booths would be good to grab for a lunch break with a few coworkers. Go for the piri piri chicken, and if it doesn’t have enough heat for you, add some of their house hot sauce or maybe opt for the spicier version next time.
