Everyone has heard about it and they’re famous for their chicken. However, not a lot of people know that there are many delicious vegetarian options as well. Just as all the non-veg fanatics go crazy for Nando’s chicken, we vegetarians have some mouth-watering veggie dishes to drool over too.

My personal favourite is the Veggie Burger. It may seem ordinary, but with their various spice levels and sauces, it’s far from normal! Every vegetarian MUST try it. And if you don’t want to go for the usual fries as a side dish (even with the Nando’s PERi-PERi spice), they have many other sides to accompany your main meal, such as, Garlic Bread (which goes ideal with Nando’s Perinaise – guaranteed to be a hit with whatever you eat), Spicy Rice, Coleslaw and Corn-on-the-Cob.

There are also other main dishes, which you can have as a wrap, pitta or burger, such as the ‘Veggie’, Roasted Portobello Mushroom and Grilled Halloumi Cheese, or ‘Beanie’. Also the Houmous with PERi-PERi Drizzle starter is a must, dug in with warm pitta, it sounds simple but not when the houmous is flavoured over with Nando’s PERi-PERi oil, you wouldn’t have tried anything like it before! Or if houmous isn’t your thing, you can try the Red Pepper Dip, which has roasted, diced red peppers tossed with chilli and spices.

With their selection of sauces ranging from wild herb to extra-extra hot, everyone’s needs are catered for. And why not add in a jug of Sangria on a Friday night to really have the full Nando’s experience! Usually, in most Nando’s, even if they’re busy, the food shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes. In recent years, Nando’s has become a very popular destination; this is most likely because of their reasonable prices and extremely good food.

Nando’s is a fun place to be, with their Portuguese music and decorated theme throughout. I’d recommend getting their loyalty card stamped because it’s definitely worth a few more visits!

My Rating: ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰ The service is mostly very good, the food is excellent, so they deserve the full 5 out of 5 rating. 

My Recommendation:

Starters: Humous and Pitta Bread

Main: Veggie Burger – with cheese, medium spice (or for those daring, try extra hot!)

Sides: Peri-Peri Chips, Garlic Bread and a Perinaise.

Average Price: £12 per person, including a starter, a main, 2 sides and a refillable drink!

My Tip: Get a bottomless drink to go along with your meal, it really does help refresh your taste buds.
