Ogalo – It’s Portuguese for ‘The Rooster’
Ogalo represents a vision in quality convenience food – it’s not fast food…. Just great food, much quicker. The Ogalo story started with an idea to provide Australians with a home style taste that gave every meal its own character - without compromising on our delicious and healthy quality.The Portuguese are renowned for their wholesome style of barbequeing marinated chickens on a healthy grill, cooking in the natural flavours without the fat and creating a tasty meal that the whole family can enjoy. The Portuguese explorers who preceded the colonization of Africa were introduced to the African bird eye chili and thus began the culinary journey to mainland Europe. This is where the so-called 'Piri-Piri’ chili sauce concept was combined with local Portuguese cooking and produce.
At Ogalo, we are part of the ‘taste evolution’ creating our own timeless, all inspired basting sauce combining fresh chili, garden herbs and exotic spices that tantalize taste buds and draw out the natural goodness of our chickens and burgers. If you like it hot, than have a lot, if not, just a little… We will make it just how you like it. We only use premium quality produce and we take time in freshly cutting and marinating our chickens; yes that’s right, every chicken and every fillet of our famous Ogalo burgers. So when you visit any Ogalo store, our friendly staff will greet you with one thing in mind – giving you not just food but great food, much quicker.
So who is behind Ogalo? Ogalo started as a family business and has since grown into a chain of outlets that are owned and managed by other operators who are ever faithful to the founding vision. We are a young and enthusiastic bunch of people with a fresh, enterprising approach to delivering tasty, fresh food in the local community.
