Nando’s the iconic brand that is loved the world over, celebrates its 20th birthday here in Malaysia with a bang.
From its humble beginnings in Jalan Telawi 20 years ago, Nando’s has grown to be a favorite amongst the flamed-grilled chicken enthusiasts locally. Sizzling the hearts of Malaysians with its trademark cheeky wit, out spoken humour and of course its glorious PERi-PERi sauce, the brand has not only introduced to Malaysians, really good chicken, but a host of other delectable eats that keep them coming back for more.
As soon as the restaurant came to roost in Malaysia, Nando’s signature PERi-PERi spread like wildfire as more and more people discovered just how delicious a little heat could be. Here are some sneak peak of the celebrations at Desa Park City’s Waterfront:
Truly passionate about chillies, Nando’s grows its own PERi-PERi chillies with the help of over 1,400 independent farmers in South Africa.
Mixing these fiery little wonders with onions, oil, herbs, fresh lemons and a kick of garlic produces the brand’s unparalleled secret weapon, the Nando’s PERi-PERi sauce.
Putting flavour first and heat second, the Nando’s PERi-PERi sauce is unlike the ‘all-out-burn’ of other chilli sauces. The chickens are marinated in the sauce for 24-hours and then basted with ones choice of heat level ranging from Lemon & Herb to the fiery Extra Hot.
The brand which has procured almost a cult status in Malaysia also have PERi-PERi sauces that fans can purchase for their home consumption, because sometimes, a dose of PERi-PERi is all one needs.
