Nando's celebrates 20th birthday!

March 16, 2018

How many times did i mentioned here that i am a big big fan of Nando's? I don't know but all my friends knew it, i can eat Nando's 3-4 days/ week, LOL! What's make me love it much is the juicy and tender flamed-grilled chicken paired with their unique PERi-PERi sauce, OMG heavenly delicious! *this is not a sponsor post =P*

Alright, back to topic. Thanks to Nando's invitation, i was in their 20th birthday party with Nando's team to celebrates their moment of great pride and honour to have completed two successful decades here. 
From its humble beginnings in Jalan Telawi, Nando’s has grown to be a favourite 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 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. Truly passionate about chillies, Nando’s grows its own PERi-PERi chillies with the help of over 1,400 independent farmers in South Africa. It takes 42,000 chillies to fill one 14kg bag and 25,000 bags are filled every year. Each chilli plant produces about 300 chillies which are hand-picked and plucked one at a time. PERi-PERi chillies rich in Vitamins A, B and C and contain capsaicin that delivers a ‘feel-good’ effect – your pupils will dilate and your metabolic rate will increase as you feel the rush of endorphins. 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. Fans can purchase for their home consumption too.

“We are definitely excited about reaching such a significant milestone here in Malaysia. When we first introduced ourselves, I believe we piqued the interest of chicken lovers out there. We were unique and were offering new flavours to people so it was an intriguing time for everyone. 20 years on and we are still firing up the tastebuds of our amazing fans and hitting a few new-comers as well. Our magical little chilli called PERi-PERi is to thank for this as it is our heart and our heat and it is truly unique to Nando’s,” commented Stephen Chew, CEO of Nando’s Malaysia.
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.
Happy 20th Birthday, Nando's!
