Visited Nando’s for a food tasting session recently with the CGSG13 bloggers and am excited to share with you a new item on their menu, the Angry Mango Burger!
So.. is Nando’s from Brazil or Mexico?
Nando’s is a South African casual dining restaurant originating from the Mozambican-Portuguese community with a Portuguese/Mozambiquan theme.
What are they well known for?
Nando’s specialties are in chicken dishes with either lemon and herb, medium, hot, extra hot or extra extra hot Peri-Peri marinades (known as Galinha à Africana).
It’s my first time trying out Nando’s and I’m psyched!
That’s right… there’s a new item on the menu and there’s mango in it!
For starters, we had the mushroom soup and I’m in love with it. It’s the peppery type!
If you don’t take spicy food, you should opt for the lemon & herb as that’s the least spicy. My face was already red after tasting the mild flavored chicken. You really don’t feel the spiciness on your tongue when eating, but the spice attacks your throat and brings about this warm fuzzy, sizzling sensation to your entire body.
And we’re moving on to their new item on the menu.
Meet the new angry mango range!
Available in Burger, Pita and Wrap options.
First bite into the angry mango burger, there’s this awesome burst of mango goodness coupled with grilled-to-the-right-degree chicken breast.
The mango carried more of a sour note rather than sweet. I thought it was a rather interesting combination. It gives this refreshing feel to a regular chicken burger. In fact, I don’t feel so fat eating it cause it’s so light and fruity!
I would recommend anyone to give this a try if you’re looking for something that’s fresh, tropical and fun.
I will be visiting often from now for sure!
