Nando's - A peek into the Peri-Peri world

Nando's is a casual dining restaurant originating from South Africa with a Portuguese & Muzambican theme. I visited Nando's, church street, Bangalore to sample some of their dishes. 

Peri-Peri is the core differentiator of Nando's. Almost all the dishes here are flavored using the peri-peri sauce. Nando's peri-peri sauce is made from African bird's eye chili and the recipe is a closely guarded secret...


The Altogether Now appetizer has Spicy Mixed Olives, Roasted veg dip, warm pita and Hummus. Hummus with a drizzle of peri-peri sauce was my favorite...


We could choose extra hot, hot, mild or lemon & herb peri-peri. I sampled all of them in the 9 Chicken wings...

 Caesar Salad with cos lettuce, parmesan cheese, Nando's croutons, chicken, topped with Nando's unique caesar dressing...


Chicken Livers and Portuguese Roll...


Espetada Rustica is served on a skewer holder and comes with side dishes of your choice. In this case, fries, spicy rice and corn-on-cob. The taste is as special as the presentation...


Corn off cob is easier to eat...

Cataplana (also the name of the copper utensil) comes with peri peri chicken on a bed of spicy rice, bell pepper and chickpeas...


Nothing is complete without eating the Butterfly Chicken Breast meal. The Butterfly Chicken Breast is a unique A-grade, trimmed off excess fat, 24 hours marinated, flame grilled chicken served in your choice of PERi-PERi flavors. The portion of chicken is butterflied and off the bone. This distinctive flame grilled double breasted delight is served with Crispy Wedges, Fresh side salad and a Refreshing Designer Drink...


The designer drinks - Citrus Bliss and Madeira Red...


 Choco cake - A decadent chocolate cake with layers of home made buttercream...


Creamy cheese cake - Dense baked cheese cake with real cream cheese and crunchy biscuit crumbs...


Even with so much crowd, the staff was very attentive and quick...


Verdict: Peri Peri Good!

    1. This spread is suggested for 2-3 people to share. Sampling each dish was a massive fill up.

  7. The food looks wonderful. I never heard of peri-peri sauce before. I lived in Brazil for a while, so if it has any Portuguese roots, I might have eaten it but perhaps it was called something else there.

    I'd love to try it, but I recently had a bleeding ulcer and I'm off spicy foods for a while. I looked it up and noticed it's on sale at Amazon.com ---isn't everything? ---so I might buy some commercially made sauce before attempting to make my own if I can ever eat spicy foods again.

    I found your blog at Geometric Friday.
