Nando's is all about chicken. Chicken is on their menu and it is on their facade and walls. It was originally from South Africa and the Tanglin outlet is its 2nd outlet in Singapore. If it's your first time there, I would recommend the Chicken Meals to get a taste of their chicken and sidelines rather than ordering the items separately as it would cost more. The meals are served in different types of chicken dishes and portions of chicken.Here's how the ordering for the chicken works. You choose
Here's how the ordering for the chicken works. You choose the flavour of your chicken. It's based on 3 levels of spiciness - Lemon & Herb, Mild Peri-Peri, Hot Peri-Peri and Extra Hot Peri-Peri.
I ordered 1 Hot chicken with Peri Potato Salad and Mediterranean Rice, 1 Lemon & Herb Chicken with Peri Chips and Peri 3 Bean Salad, and 2 glasses of soft drinks - Orange and Coke. Basically, I feel there's not much difference in flavour between the chickens, but I prefer Lemon & Herb as the skin of the chicken is crispier.
To accentuate the taste of the chicken, try it with their 4 types of sauces - Tomato, Garlic, Hot and Extra Hot. Garlic is my favourite among the spicy sauces and I feel that the spicier it gets, the greater I dislike the taste. Perhaps African chilli spices are just not to my liking.
But I feel that Nando's shines because of its sidelines! The sidelines are really good! I love the sauce of the Peri Potato Salad! Note that the skins of the potatoes are retained so avoid this dish if you don't eat potato skin. The Peri Chips would have been normal chips if it wasn't sprinkled with the chilli powder, making them a little spicy and irresistible! My love goes to the Mediterranean Rice as well! I don't know how they cook their rice; although it's just mixed with peas, carrots and corn, it's very yummy! As for the Peri 3 Bean Salad, I only took a couple spoonfuls of it as I find the taste weird.
Nando's is a place worth visiting for pleasant environment and killer sidelines!
