A Portuguese (well actually South African - but made to look Portuguese) restaurant chain. their main speciality is Chicken dishes with various levels of spice - in particula Peri Peri spices which i think are from somewhere like Mozambique originally.
There are quite a few in the UK these days - we have one in the town where i live. Go to South Africa and they are everywhere, including at the airports.
Just when I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, it was some B*****d with a torch bringing me more work

Quoting IAH777 (Reply 6): The thingies that dangle betwixt your legs, I believe. I'm not all that current on the vernacular kids are using these days.
I think those would be nads!
Nandos is pretty good - certainly a couple of steps up the food ladder above McDs and KFC!
The chicken is grilled not fried and is generally pretty good.
Yes they are expanding - there's even a Nandos in Doha now! In fact the most popular dish there is not available in the UK. It's a hanging chicken kebab that's been grilled on the skewer, served with rice and salad. Very tasty.

While it's pretty good, I don't think I'd ever drive 2 hours just to eat there.

Mmmmmmmm Nando's - lemon 'n herb, my fave ! Very popular in SA, now seems to be a global thing, good on 'em. The international versions can't quite get the chips right though, they need to be good old South African slap chips, thick cut and a bit soggy. Mmmmm.
Quoting Jasepl (Reply 9): Then I was told it's a Portuguese-South African chain that does fried chicken or something.
Not fried - flame-grilled, very important distinction. And very yummy.

They opened in Israel about 8 years ago (not sure - but definitely about that time) and been quite successful. Personally I like them , not to mention the fact that they offer the healthiest fast food in the market.

As we say in South Africa "very lekker!" (nice, good etc) and there are some healthy options.One of our local airlines 1Time DC9's is painted in Nandos colour scheme. Check out their website www.nandos.co.za. Open a franchise in your own town !
