OUR STORY

A memorable restaurant experience not only focuses on gastronomical delights but should also be an authentic sensory occasion.

Brazas Portuguese Fusion does exactly this and lives up to their mantra – Mi casa Su casa –  Our home is your home.

A restaurant that feels like a home, with vibrant personal art adorning the walls, and mouth-watering dishes that tell the story of a family’s culinary journey.  This is real soul food in a relaxed family orientated environment.

Opened in 2022, having returned to East London, their story now represents new beginnings and community support where the rich history of Portuguese cuisine reflects bold and spicy flavours, passion and fire.

The focus on high quality, locally sourced fresh ingredients inspires chef Jean Michel to create weekly specials, including deliciously creative Vegetarian meals and unique desserts.

Popular dishes include prawns with lemony butter, flame grilled peri-peri chicken, rump espetada and Mozambican chicken and prawn curry.

Super Bock Portuguese beer compliments the experience, with a cocktail menu for all tastes.  Brazas prides itself on a wonderful Portuguese and local wine menu

The fusion element marries the food, space and dynamic working relationships into something that should be celebrated – the simplicity of a delicious meal in a comforting environment surrounded with great company.

Mi Casa, Su Casa

Our home is your home, sit back and enjoy

Great experiences

WOW - that literally sums it up! Absolutely devine food and incredible service. We were in a rush but didn't mention it to the staff, nevertheless food was served in a short time - fresh, hot and so tasty. Service was great - friendly and very accommodating. There was a vegetarian guest on a neighboring table, and the chef came out himself to give additional options that were not listed on the menu. Haven't seen that in a while, and it shows you that they care. Well done, thanks to the whole team for an awesome dinner night out. We will be back. Obrigado!

Best Peri Peri chicken in East London, Maybe even in South Africa If you love proper Mozambique Peri peri chicken, then look bo further than this spot. Massively impressed. House made Peri peri sauce options speak volumes to the ethos of this fine restaurant. Will definitely return when back in EL.

octopus Pedro suggested that we try the octopus portugese style "Polvo a Lagareiro"?, grilled tentacles, baby potatoes, peppers and onions...What a dish! Can't wait for the Cape St. Francis calamari to appear.

Delicious lunch! I visited yesterday at lunch time with my daughter and had a wonderful experience! We had the garlic prawn starter, muscles special, chicken prego and ice cream for dessert. All of the food was cooked, spiced and flavored to perfection. The atmosphere of the restaurant is wonderful and authentic, and our host had fantastic manners and a great attitude. Our chef also came to check that we enjoyed the food and is a very friendly guy. Perfect lunch time spot and will definitely return again soon! We will actually be there tomorrow for Father's Day. Thank you Brazas team! 5/5 recommended. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

An experience that'll keep you coming back for more! Having Portuguese family means we crave the taste of authentic Portuguese food. So we were very excited to give Brazas a try and I am so glad we did. The food is sensational, from wholseome prawn curry with just the right amount of spice to the iconic espetada and perfectly tender calamari. Every dish passing our table made us swallow and want to order more. The restaurant is intimate and cosy and can definitely boast about their friendly and helpful waitrons as well as offering its diners the pleasure of watching Chef Jean Michel and his incredible team cook, plate and perfect every item coming off the pass. I will definitely be returning soon to get myself a prego roll, prawns and some more calamari!
