Top 5 dishes at Nando’s Peri-Peri

Hunter Wolff and Andrew Ryder


#1: Flame-Grilled Chicken


Hands down the top dish at Nando’s is the Flame-Grilled Chicken. Smothered in the Peri-Peri sauce to your liking (six choices), the tender chicken fills your mouth with an array of sensations. You can choose a spicy, mild, sweet, or tangy route when it comes to your desired flavors and heat levels. This main dish goes well with a side of the legendary corn on the cob and garlic bread.


The only way you can get closer than this is to actually eat the Flame-Grilled Chicken yourself.


#2: Chicken Breast Sandwich


A solid second choice for an entrée, one of the best parts of the Chicken Breast Sandwich is the toasted Portuguese roll. With flame-grilled on the inside along with arugula, pickled red onions, and of course Peri-Peri mayo it is one of the more flavorful sandwiches we’ve ever had. Also coming in a rather small portion, the sandwich is a great medium sized option.


#3 Hummus with Peri-Peri Drizzle


Leading the way for appetizers on the Nando’s menu is the hummus with pita. Hummus and pita is definitely a classic dish in many restaurants however this rendition takes on a whole new dimension with the drizzle of Peri-Peri in the center and warm, fresh, and fluffy pita bread on the side. This is by far our favorite starter dish.


Make sure you order extra pita as pictured above so that you can eat all of the Hummus, otherwise you’ll run out!


#4 Caesar Salad


The fourth best dish at Nando’s has got to be the Caesar Salad. The crisp green romaine lettuce covered in Caesar dressing and house made croutons is a mouthwatering experience. If you’re feeling adventurous, order the salad with the flame-grilled chicken and drizzle your choice of Peri-Peri sauce on top.

#5 Chocolate Spoon Cake


To top off a delicious dinner you have to have a great dessert. While in Chicago, most people might go to a place that specializes in dessert but at Nando’s the Chocolate Spoon Cake covers all of your dessert cravings. A side of whipped cream counters the rich chocolate flavors from the moist and soft cake and icing.


Attention to detail is what Nando’s is all about, the chocolate cake is no exception.
