Quick Bite: Nando's Peri-Peri's Chicken Estepada

Friday, August 15, 2014

We first ate at Nando’s PERi-PERi some three years ago when we first came to Doha, and we still do every once in a while. Nando’s is a Portugese restaurant known for their flame grilled chicken and their special PERi-PERi sauce. The bottled sauces comes in 6 flavors, or should I say levels of hotness.

The Lemon & Herb PERi-PERi sauce is labeled x-mild (for extra mild) is the one I always take. Yes I am a coward. My tolerance for spicy food is at the lowest level. You can buy the sauce in any Nando’s branch. Sometimes they have it at Carrefour and Spinney’s, but it will be safer to go to their restaurants.

Now let’s talk about the chicken…

Nando’s is famous for its legendary butterfly cut, PERi-PERi chicken, which is marinated for 24-hours before being flame-grilled and basted in your choice of addictive Nando’s PERi-PERi sauce. 


Now if you want a little drama to your chicken, you could try the Espetada. You can choose two sides for each order of chicken. They have a variety of choices from vegetables to corn to french fries. The price is very reasonable at QR60 an order. I would recommend the potato wedges and coleslaw for the sides.

They have 6 branches here in Qatar: Salwa Road, City Center Mall, Bin Omran, C-Ring Road (Financial Square), Hyatt Plaza Mall, and the last one is at The Pearl-Qatar which opened just recently.
