Restaurants won't be open to customers until April (outside at least) so we're starting to see some more interesting ways that they've devised to reopen before then (particularly now that we're allowed to sit and eat in the park).
Roulote is Bar Douro's way of slowly getting back to business. It's a sandwich pop up, named after Portuguese street food trailers, that's being run from the restaurant's Flat Iron Square location. Keeping things pretty simple there are just two sandwiches on offer, but they both sound amazing.
- The Bifana is made with thinly-sliced pork shoulder, poached in a white wine & fermented pepper sauce and served in carcaças bread with savora mustard mayonnaise.
- The Octopus Roll features a soft white roll with octopus, red peppers and caramelised onions and topped with coriander, straw potato crisps and piri-piri mayonnaise.
Obviously you're going to need something to go with that, and while it can't be alcohol just yet, it can be alcohol free beer, courtesy of Free Star, which is what they're serving.
Later in the summer, once the restaurant has reopened, there are plans to have a special Roulote van selling sarnies in Flat Iron Square.
