I feel a bit weird doing a Nando’s review approximately 15 years since I had my first – but let’s go with it…

Nando’s, is the place where all the nans, their kids, grandkids, and great grandkids go. Everyone goes to Nando’s. In fact, you don’t have to have a nan to go with… You can go with your man, drive a van, or just turn up with your mate Jan, who’s a fan.

I love Nando’s. The food, the sauces, the ambiance (not ambulance, although – if you try a spice too hot and aren’t accustomed to it, you might need one).

PERi PERi Sauce

My favourite Nando’s sauce has to be the Pomegranate dressing. It’s not spicy, it’s just bae. Also, Nando’s NEW(ish) Vusa sauce is apparently hotter than the Extra Extra Sauce (the black bottle) but, umm, I don’t know if my mum made love to a Scotch Bonnet the night she got preggers with me, I just didn’t find it “too spicy”. However, it is DELICIOUS! I’d have it on everything.


What do I have when I go there? Aside from the Halloumi, Hummus Dip, Sweet Potato Wedges and Chicken (what it’s most famous for)? The Quinoa salad. It’s got my absolute every favourite ingredients… Chicken, Quinoa, Chick Peas, Avocado, and Greens. I have to admit I’m not big on Feta – so I choose to have the salad without. I do get a side of Halloumi though.

If you find yourself in South Africa (where it originates) or Portugal, pop down and try it from the HOME of Nando’s. Alternatively, do a Mii and travel as far as your local high road, in the UK, for a CHEEKY one! You’ll never regret it. It’s actually the most delicious way to have chicken. Grilled. Charred.

Finally, this is a special announcement – I’m obsessed with the Wing Roulette. It’s a safer, non muderous version of Russian Roulette. Instead, you’re sacrificing your tastebud (if too much spicy/heat isn’t your thing). BAE. B A E. U are B-A-E, Nando’s.
