Nando's Chickenland

08 October 2010

Move over Barcelos, the real deal from South Africa has arrived and by the looks of it, is here to stay. Admittedly I was quite reluctant to pay a visit to Nando's in Singapore because I've tried it in Kuala Lumpur for almost half the price. It's only natural that you would feel somewhat cheated having to fork out more for essentially the same thing.

Peri-fect Platter

A meal for four with the family; how apt that the tagline for this platter was "families that eat together, stay together". The Peri Chips were not too bad given the spicy flavour, but it's not actually cooked with spices but really just sprinkle-on chilli powder. The Spiced Rice, moist with a curry-like flavour, was unique and could be eaten on its own. Grilled Vegetables were alright while the Mediterranean Rice was the most plain and boring of the lot.

For the uninitiated, Nando's specialises in flame-grilled Portuguese-style "peri-peri" (Swahili for the African Bird’s Eye chilli) chicken, so don't you step in here and order some boring salad! The chicken was tender on most parts and it's commendable that the herbs and spices were sufficiently infused throughout. If it's not spicy enough, there's always extremely peri-peri (spicy) sauces on the table to test your limits.

Very good.

$43.60++ for the peri-fect platter.

Additional Comment
The staff told me that all their meats are Halal-certified, but there isn't full certification for the whole restaurant because they serve alcohol.

oh they're expanding in SG pretty fast! At least more options instead of queueing up at Bugis! And I agree, not to order just boring salad when you hop into this chickenland!

It can be quite long at Tanglin too, but I suppose not as long as the one in Bugis. Just go at odd hours!
