Tonight I was thinking of Nando’s. Recently my grocery store started carrying Nando’s sauces and I bought a couple bottles.
The two available sauces were these two which I normally use when I eat at Nando’s.
Tonight my dinner was not as good as what you see here. Instead I just baked a couple chicken breast tenderloins with a bit of seasoning. I then cut them into small chunks and dipped them in the medium sauce.
Perhaps next time I will try something a bit more ambitions. I probably won’t try to grill a half chicken, but perhaps I will marinate the chicken before cooking.
I may also make some fries as they are very good dipped in the peri-peri sauce.
What I would really like is to get a true Nando’s fix at one of the restaurants in Sydney where I can get some chicken ribs.
Another place that would be nice to visit is this Nando’s in Cambridge, England.
I first experienced Nando’s just before 9/11 when I was in South Africa. Since that time I have eaten Nando’s in multiple places around the world.
Perhaps someday I will get to visit a Nando’s in the US. Nando’s does have restaurants in the Baltimore/DC and Chicago areas and they are slowly expanding to other areas. Virginia Beach and Houston have been announced as new locations that are coming soon.
I do know that the San Francisco Bay Area was being considered back when Nando’s chose Chicago as their second market, so perhaps they are still high on the list for expansion.
