EVENTS/EATS: New @ NANDO's! [A Gastronomical Food Tasting Event]



SHALL WARN YOU.
THIS IS A HEAVY FOOD POST.
WHEN I SAY HEAVY, I  DO MEAN HEAVY.






 I HAVE NEVER TRIED EATING AT NANDO'S;
FROM WHAT I HEARD BEFORE IT'S ALL ABOUT CHICKEN AND THEIR SPECIAL SAUCES.
NOT REALLY KEEN ON THAT
UNTIL THIS SPECIAL COMMUNITY GAMES ORGANIZATION  CAME UP WITH AN INVITE AND
OF COURSE WHO AM I TO MISS OUT A FOOD TASTING EVENT!


I WENT TO THE NANDO'S TANGLIN MALL OUTLET
AND NOT ONLY MANAGED TO TASTE DELISH FOOD BUT
MEET FAB CO-BLOGGERS AS WELL.






UPON ENTRANCE I WAS GREETED BY THIS..
THE MAIN STAR OF THE SHOW
THEIR NEWEST FOOD ITEM TO PUMP UP THE SUMMER SEASON.






Nando's is a South African casual dining restaurant group originating from the Mozambican-Portuguese community with a Portuguese/Mozambiquan theme. Nando's specialises in flame-grilled Peri-Peri chicken. Peri-peri also known as African Bird's Eye chilli, is a variety of Capsicum frutescens widely grown in East and Southern Africa.



AS MENTIONED, THE PEOPLE FROM VIBES COMMUNICATIONS; NANDO'S SINGAPORE AND

PRETTY AND REALLY REFRESHING;

 I ORDERED THE CRIMSON COLA JUST CAUSE OF THE RED BITS LOL
FEELS LIKE AM IN THE BEACH OR SOMETHING HEHE.
THE TASTE OF POMEGRANATES WITH COKE IS SOMETHING DELICIOUSLY UNUSUAL, 
MAJOR SLURPS!





AS MENTIONED, THE STAR OF THE NIGHT:
THE ANGRY MANGO






THEY SERVED US THE FOLLOWING:

Wild Mushroom Soup & Garlic Bread ($6.90)


PIPING HOT MUSHROOM SOUP WITH TONS OF CHICKEN BITS,
TASTY AND THE SINCE THE SOUP HAS THE ELEMENTS OF PERI-PERI IN IT,
IT WOULD NOT GIVE YOU THAT UMAY FACTOR.
BEAUTIFUL SOUP, GREAT COMBO.


 THEN NANDO'S PROUDLY PRESENTS:

THE ANGRY MANGO
COMES IN BURGER, PITA AND WRAP 




 
Angry Mango Peri-Peri Chicken 
(Wrap/Burger/Pita) 
($11.90 each)




 


 







I LOVE THAT THEY ALSO HAVE OPTIONS TO GO WITH THEIR ANGRY MANGO.
I TRIED THE WRAP SINCE THE BURGER REALLY LOOKS FILLING 
PLUS I DO NOT WANNA BLOAT MYSELF HAHA.


PRETTY DECENT ON MY PLATE
BUT HECK I GRABBED IT WITH MY CLEAN BARE HANDS OF COURSE,
AND ATE IT WITH MUCH GUSTO.



IT REMINDED ME OF CHICKEN MANGO SALSA,
HOWEVER THIS ONE IS DIFFERENT.
THE TROPICAL FLAVOR OF THE MANGO COMPLEMENTS WITH THE PERI-PERI SAUCE NICELY;
IT'S A TUG O'WAR ..TANGY AND SWEET.
 GOOD TO SEE THAT THE CHICKEN ARE INDEED IN BITE SIZED PIECES;
JUST A LIL BIT OF SPICE;
FLAME-GRILLED JUST RIGHT...
CRUNCHY TOO, LOVE.


 

 SIDE DISHES ANYONE?
YOU NEED THESE TRUST ME...
ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE GETTING DOWN INTO BUSINESS WITH YOUR PERI-PERI CHICKEN!
 Peri-Peri Sprinkle Chips or Fries ($3.90-$5.90)

Coleslaw($3.90-$5.90)
Spinach ($4.90-$6.90)
Grilled Veggies 
($4.90-$6.90)





 

 PERSONALLY LOVE THE FRIES AND THE VEGGIES, I THINK I FINISHED THE ZUCCHINIS...MY FAVE!



FINALLY!
THE PERI-PERI CHICKEN SERVED IN ALL ITS GLORY.






 I CHOSE THE HOT PERI-PERI CHICKEN
AND PAIRED IT MOSTLY WITH THE COLESLAW TO COOL ME OFF.
NOT THAT SPICY IMO. 
NOW I REGRET NOT GETTING THE EXTRA HOT LOL LOL
SHOULD I STILL SAY THAT THE CHICKEN WAS UBER JUICY AND TASTY?
PIC SAYS IT ALL...
FINGER LICKIN' SAUCE.
THIS MEAT IS PRETTY EASY TO ENJOY.
NOT REALLY A FAN OF CHICKEN IN GENERAL,
BUT FOUND MYSELF WANTING TO BACK AND WAS CRAVING THIS THE NEXT DAY AFTER;



IT MAY NOT BE MIND BLOWING 
BUT THE SAUCE WILL DEFO SAVE YOUR DAY.
TRY IT, JUST ONCE AND I THINK YOU'D BE ABLE TO PICK A SAUCE THAT MATCHES YOUR TASTE.
MINE'S THE GARLIC!
IT GOES WELL WITH THE CHICKEN AND I WAS TELLING ONE OF THE LOVELY LADY FROM NANDO'S THAT
THIS WOULD SURELY GO WELL WITH PORK...GRILLED PORK BELLY TO BE EXACT.
I MADE MY OWN DISH AND SERVED IT WITH THE GARLIC PERI-PERI SAUCE,
YOU BET IT'S A VERSATILE SAUCE.




AND JUST AS WE THOUGHT WE HAVE NO MORE SPACE LEFT IN OUR BELLY FOR MORE FOOD,
THEY ASKED US IF WE WANTED  TEA.
CAFFEINE IT IS FOR ME  AS USUAL SO I OPTED FOR A  CUP OF BREWED COFFEE.





THE YOU-CAN-NEVER-SAY-NO-TO-DESSERTS SCENARIO


Pastel de Nata ($4.90)



I HELD THIS THING IN MY HAND,
THE SMELL..ZOMG!
IT WAS HOT AND REALLY SOFT.
I IMMEDIATELY TOOK A BITE,
NOT MINDING IF I'D SCALD MY TOUNGE HAHAHA

PASTEL DE NATA IS PORTUGAL'S SIGNATURE PASTRY AKA PASTEIS DE NATA;
IT'S A CUSTARD TART WITH A TOUCH OF CINNAMON..
LIL BITES OF HEAVEN, YUM OVERLOAD.
ALMOST GOT TEMPTED TO DIP IT IN MY COFFEE HAHA.


DO YOU SPOT ANOTHER DEVILISH TREAT IN THE PHOTO BELOW?



 Lighten Up Chocolate Cake ($5.90)


GOODNESS, THIS IS NOT IN ANY WAY LIGHT!
LOOKED OLD-FASHIONED TO ME AT FIRST, BUT UPON FIRST BITE 
IT HAS THIS SMOOTH MELTING FUDGEY TASTE.
THE CAKE WAS A BIT DRY BUT THE FUDGE MADE ME FORGET ABOUT IT.


ANOTHER LOVELLLLLY CAKE!

Caramel Cheesecake ($5.90)


ONE WORD.... SCRUMBUMPTIOUS!
THIS MAY LOOKED LIKE AN ORDINARY CHEESECAKE FROM AN ORDINARY BAKERY
BUT THE TASTE WAS EXQUISITE.
LOVE THE CRUNCH BASE AND MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH KICK.
I.Was.Pumped.
 THE PERFECT DESSERT SET TO END OUR MEAL.
