Hands up who loves a Nandos?
For anyone reading this who doesn’t know what Nandos is, it’s a chain of Portuguese chicken restaurants that’s quick, casual and very tasty! The kind of place that if your meeting up with a friend for food it usually ends up with ‘Fancy a Nandos?’
If you’re in the mood for chicken but fancy somewhere a bit different, Chicken Shop is a good choice. Or as some people cal it … Posh Nandos!
The concept is the same but the menu is shorter and simpler.
Quarter, half or whole rotisserie chicken with their own special spice blend and sauces.
As well a range of sides likes coleslaw, avocado salad and a must try corn on the cob.
They bring the corn to the table and ask do you want butter on it. If you do they stand and pour hot garlic butter all over it until it’s swimming in the stuff.
So what have we learnt here? ALWAYS SAY YES!
They also do some proper homemade, comforting desserts too – warm brownies, lemon tart and the BEST deep filled apple pie EVER.
Again, they bring it to the table and spoon it out of these huge pie dishes. It’s crunchy and gooey and cinnamony (if that’s a word!) You’ll end up going back for that alone.
You really can’t fail with chicken so it’s pretty much the perfect place for anyone (maybe except vegetarians!). Not to mention its actually quite healthy!
It’s pretty chilled and a really good place for a date night, quick midweek dinner or weekend feast with a few drinks and a mate or two.
P.S PLEEEEAAASEEEE GET THE APPLE PIE!!!
