Tasty Tuesday: Nando’s REVIEW

Happy Tuesday everyone! For today’s post, I want to talk about my new obsession: Nando’s. My friend, now co-worker introduced me to this restaurant two weeks ago and I have since been three times now. It doesn’t hurt that there’s one right beside the office.

If you haven’t heard of Nando’s yet, it’s a restaurant chain from South Africa, famous for it’s Portuguese-style Peri-Peri chicken. Peri-peri also known as African bird’s eye chili gives the flame-grilled chicken a unique kick. I don’t know what else they put in the marinade, but it is so delicious.

Unlike a traditional sit-down restaurant, you get a table number, line up to order, pay at the counter and then wait for your food to arrive at your table. Personally, I really prefer this set-up so you can just leave as soon as you’re done with your food. It comes in handy when they get really busy.

The only thing I’ve tried so far is the 1/4 chicken breast with garlic mashed potatoes and frankly, I don’t need anything else. The chicken is always cooked to perfection. I’ve gotten it either medium or mild and loved both.

Well, maybe some Pasteis de Natas for dessert. Definitely another reason to stop by are the super yummy Portuguese custard tarts!

The boyfriend’s go-to is their Peri-Peri Chicken Sandwich with pineapple. I haven’t tried it but he swears by it. I also really appreciate the many dipping sauces they have available. The garlic one is my favorite. Nando’s is the perfect example of a restaurant that is the best at doing a signature dish. I’m so happy to have discovered it, finally. Run, don’t walk. And I’m already counting down to the next time I go!
