Nando’s is very famous with their Peri-Peri Chicken. But did you know what’s Peri-Peri? It’s an African Bird’s Eye chilli which is so spicy and setting fire once reached your mouth! This is what their traditional and signatured Peri-Peri sauces main ingredients where they have 5 kinds of it (Extreme Hot, Hot, Mild, Wild Herb and Garlic Peri-Peri sauces). This is of course used, as one of their secret ingredients with the marination too.
We were in Al Qasba last weekend for a dinner. Just without any plan we thought of having a spicy and firey one! Nando’s is the best option especially when it comes to their Chicken Wings!
We chose to dine-in inside although they have a very spacious area outside. Why? Because of our little naughty Hamza! I met Ganesh and he attended and helped us with the menu.
We had the appeteasers as they call it with Hummus with Peri-Peri drizzle. It will give you a good kick drizzling this Peri-Peri drizzle on top of the hummus with olive oil, dipping the warm and soft pita to it. Absolutely a must try!
Then the most awaited Chicken Wings which I thought of joining last month when they have a #chickenwingschallenge in Abu Dhabi. I guess I could’ve beaten the winner 😅. This is extremely tasty however hot at the same time. So your nose will start getting watery. There were 4 pcs but I was able to have 3 because I didn’t expect hubby will give up on 1 piece. I loved the opportunity!
Now the main course were the PERI-PERI Chicken and the Espetada. Each dishes have 2 side dishes that you can add. We chose 2 spicy rice, corn on the cob and normal fries. Truly amazing taste! What’s not to like? Tender and juicy too!
I’m not going to finish without a dessert. I tried their best-seller Choc’late Lovin Spoon Cake. It’s a chocolate pudding between 2 layers of dark moist chocolate cake served with a vanilla ice cream as a request. A great combination! I enjoyed every lovin spoon I made.
For drinks hubby got his usual Lemon Mint and I tried the Madeira Red. A sweet, fizzy pomegranate lemonade made with Sprite and finished with a sugary rim.
Al Qasba is a great place to go to because aside for the exclusive visit for Nando’s, we can stroll around and there are kids entertainment available. A family oriented place and of course it’s for everyone!
