Eat Only Lar!

About two months ago, we were browsing through offers from Student Beans and found a good deal from Nando’s. Since we haven’t had Nando’s for quite some time, we decided to visit the restaurant.

The Nando’s which we visited is located in the Old Brewery Quarter. It is located near Bali Restaurant and Chiquito.

The counter where we placed our orders.

We read from their website that they only use fresh and not frozen chicken and that it was marinated for 24 hours in their Portuguese peri-peri sauce. The chicken was grilled to order over an open flame so to reduce fat content. We like the open kitchen concept where we can see our food being prepared.

The counter where we refill our drinks and get cutleries and peri-peri sauce.

So here we go, we got ourselves an extra extra hot peri-peri sauce and a ketchup.

With the printed voucher and a valid NUS student card, we are able to get a free half chicken subject to ordering a bottomless drink (£1.95) and a side dish (£1.85). Here’s ys’s free half chicken and coleslaw. For the level of spiciness of the chicken, we chose extra hot to satisfy our cravings for spicy food.

I had a quarter chicken with two regular sides for £6.10. For the sides, we had chips and spicy rice. The chicken was good, very well-grilled, fresh and spicy. Complemented with the extra hot peri-peri sauce, it was fiery and perfect! The chips were nice and decent, nothing much to shout about. The spicy rice was good, albeit not spicy, it was quite nice and flavourful.

The servings were a little small to our surprise. Not too sure about other Nando’s outlets in the UK, but the floor of the restaurant which we visited in St Mary Street was a little slippery. We have to pay extra caution when carrying our drinks from the counter. Other than that, service and food was excellent. Would absolutely go back for more fiery chicken!
