As majestic as it looks (and sound), Espetada Carnival is a pleasant delight. The flame-grilled chicken thigh is tender and springy. The Feta Cheese and garlic stuffed within the chunks of chicken meat add a natural flavoring to its grilled counterparts. I love the little charred parts – it adds the taste of grilled authenticity without being too strong or unhealthy. Customize your own spicy level tolerance with the special peri-peri sauce – zesty with different levels of spiciness for your preference. My friends and I usually pick our chicken to be mild, and add on the sauce ourselves to fit our own taste.
Pumpkin and Grilled Corn is a new side dish from Nando’s. It is sweet and I like how the pumpkin carries a slight crunch to it. Not a fan of pumpkin myself, this new side will be a healthy and sweet alternative that will appeal more to pumpkin lovers, although flavor might be a little acquired to some.
Available now until 28 June 2014, enjoy the Espetada Carnival with 2 sides at $22.90 or complete the meal with a Spicy Mango Sangria at $25.90.
Nando’s prove the versatility of chicken by spinning many other delectable dishes with it, along with the signature PERi-PERi sauce with a customized spiciness to your liking. For this limited period delight, nothing should hold you back to try out the Nando’s Espetada Carnival today.
