Best known for their PERi-PERi sauce and their flamed grilled chicken, Nando's has been expanding quickly to almost every part of Singapore. With 9 outlets island-wide, Singaporeans can expect to feast on delicious grilled chicken marinated in a secret 24-hour marinade, paired with their signature PERi-PERi sauce made from 100% natural ingredients.
Ranging from Lemon & Herb to Extra Hot, each PERi-PERi sauce offers a different level of heat and intensity to suit your tastebuds. From least spicy to the most spicy - Lemon & Herb, Mild, Hot and Extra Hot.
One's visit to Nando's isn't complete until you have tried their PERi-PERi Chicken. Offered in different PERi-PERi levels and in different portions (1/4, 1/2 or whole), one can also opt for an additional 2 sides or 1 fino side to complete the meal. We suggest you stick to 1/4 chicken and 2 sides if you are having it alone as the portions at Nando's are quite hearty.
With an extremely wide selection of sides ranging from their signature chips with PERi sprinkle to Mediterranean Rice, one will be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing their sides. But if we really had to pick, we would go for the chips which came golden and crispy, as well as the pumpkin and grilled corn.
For a healthier option, we would recommend going for the Butterfly Chicken Breast which came charred at the right places and was succulent and juicy despite it being chicken breast. Nando's also uses A-grade chickens which are trimmed of most of the excess fats.
And of course we saved the best for last. Espetada - tender flame-grilled chicken thighs stuffed with garlic, parsley and feta cheese, skewered alongside mixed peppers. We couldn't fault this dish based on appearance, as well as taste. All the flavours complimented each other and each piece of chicken thigh was juicy, tender and stuffed generously.
Undoubtedly a restaurant that will leave you having a 'chicken-tastic' time, we like how Nando's plays around with one ingredient (chicken) and offers a variety of different dishes that is bound to suit one's tastebuds. And of course the best part will have to be being able to customise the level of spiciness you want your chicken dish to be - there's absolutely no reason to not enjoy a customised meal.
