Roulote takes its name from the trailers which dominate the street corners of Lisbon and Porto and will initially launch as a pop-up at the group’s original restaurant in Flat Iron Square near London Bridge.
This summer, Roulote will relaunch outside the restaurant in its own street food trailer.
Roulote will initially serve two sandwiches for take-away only; the Portuguese classic bifana (thinly-sliced pork shoulder, poached in a white wine and fermented pepper sauce and served in carcaças bread with savora mustard mayonnaise) and a more contemporary octopus roll, which is billed as being reminiscent of the Portuguese late-night street food favourite, the cachorros (hot dog roll).
Roulote will serve beer from drinks partner Free Star, which produces ‘IPA-style alcohol-free lager’.
The business will trade from midday to 4pm from 13 March until 10 April Fridays and Saturdays with further updates to be released shortly.
Max Graham launched Bar Douro in Flat Iron Square in 2016 and followed up with a second, larger restaurant in The City in early 2020.
