Eating Out Options: Nandos

Standard

First of all, apologies for the lack of posts recently I had a period of no internet and then spent the last week in the wonderful city of Budapest (expect a summary of my Hungarian food experience soon).

So a few weeks ago now I visited Nando’s with my sister for dinner so I thought I’d review my experience there. This was not my first visit, though it was my first visit after becoming wheat free.

I’ve always liked Nando’s as the service is quick since you order and pay at the til, the food is simple but tasty, it is good value for money and you can never go wrong with spicy food.

For vegetarians Nando’s provides a great option choice on the menu, in fact I know many people who opt for the vegetarian option even though they are not vegetarian because there is so much flavour. The veggie options include: Beanie burger- sweetcorn, chickpea and lentils, a mushroom and halloumi burger and the Veggie Burger- soya and tomato. These can be served with a burger bap, pitta or wrap and with one or two sides from a large choice including: mash, spicy rice, coleslaw and corn on the cob.

I was rather tempted to get one of the veggie options without the bread but then I decided to opt for a salad instead for convenience and I am most definitely glad that I did, I was very impressed with my Mediterranean salad:

I often find that salads aren’t worth getting in restaurants since they are over priced and over flavoured but I cannot fault this salad in any way. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal without having to feel ill afterwards, as I so often have suffered from from eating out.

In my past trips to Nando’s I either ordered wine or stuck to the bottomless refills of fizzy drinks. However, this time I decided to try something a bit different and went with the Peach Rubro (iced tea):

Overall, I would definitely recommend Nando’s if you are yet to make a visit and if you have I would definitely recommend trying out one of the salads if you have been hesitant in the past.
