I eat a lot of chicken, it’s one of the few proteins that I can cook. So going to a restaurant that specializes in flame grilled chicken didn’t exactly excite me. But Nando’s Peri-Peri is near my office and my coworkers go crazy over it. My car was in the shop so my roommate was picking me up from work and was able to be easily persuaded into giving Nando’s in Harbor East a shot.
My roommate is crazy for hummus, when she sees it on a menu she wants it. So, of course we started with the Hummus with Peri-Peri Drizzle. The creamy hummus was served with a bottle of tangy Peri-Peri infused oil (slightly spicy) to pour over the hummus and warm pita chips. The hummus was good and I loved the added kick of the Peri-Peri drizzle.
For her meal, my roommate ordered the Flame Grilled Wings. The wings were super flavorful, mildly spicy, and had a great crispy exterior. While these weren’t the best wings I’ve had, for sure they make the favorites list.
I heard the chicken was delicious, so I ordered Chicken Breast Wrap. The wrap came with peppery sweet chilli jam, tangy yogurt sauce, and grilled pineapples. This was probably the best chicken sandwich I have ever had. The chicken was tender and flavorful and served with a side of fries.
I was a bit of a doubter before, but Nando’s Peri-Peri has turned me on to Peruvian chicken.
Know of any other Peruvian chicken spots in Harbor East I need to try? Let me know in the comments below!
