Nando's Chicken @ Jcube

Dinner at Nandos Chicken with friends. The restaurant is famous for their fiery peri peri sauce.

A little story behind "Peri-peri": A young spirited boy went exploring one day and returned late that night with the African Bird's eye Chill "Pili Pili"(Swahili word for 'pepper pepper') It had been shown to him by the African people who named it Pili-Pili. The Portugese boy couln't pronounce "Pili-Pili" and introduced the chillies as Peri-Peri.

1/4 Chicken (Hot) with 2 sidelines: $14.90 My choice was potato salad and Peri Chips.

Sidelines available
Old Styled Chips
Peri Chips
Mediterranean rice
Peri potato salad
Grilled vegetables
Peri 3 Bean Salad
Spiced Rice

My obsession with potatoes. This Peri chips is soft, sprinkled with Peri powder. This isn't really spicy. I love the thick and soft potatoes.

I order the hot peri chicken. The chicken is well marinated and grilled with the Hot Peri sauce. I really like the taste of the chicken. The meat is springy.

Potato salad is delicious. Baby potatoes coated with what taste like a combination of sour cream, lime and green onions. The potatoes are soft and I don't mind eating with the skin on. Potatoes skin contains vitamin C.

Crunchy roll: $5.90

This black stuff is basically milk chocolate and the white stuff are biscuits. It is not crunchy at all so don't let the name fool you. It is really soft and just tasted like milk chocolate with soft biscuits, coated with a layer of sugar. I think it tasted okay but is a little expensive for three bite size biscuit. It would have been better if it is dark chocolate instead.

Rating: 4/5

The nandos chicken is awesome.
