Nando’s has launched its spring menu, and new meals feature a PERInaise burger, a pita and a wrap – as well as two new frosted drinks. All three meals come with caramelised onion and avo slices.
Business Insider tried all three, and here’s what we though.
At R79 – R3 less than a standard chicken burger from Nando’s – it’s pretty similar to the original, just with the added avocado, PERInaise and caramelised onions.
The presentation was a bit sloppy, but the buns and other ingredients were fresh. The mild version of the burger was pretty spicy and the caramelised onions were a welcome addition.
The wrap – which we also ordered mild – contained chicken strips, diced cucumber, avocado slices, tomato, and caramelised onion. The combination was juicy and flavourful.
The sweetness of the caramelised onions just added to the flavour.
Verdict: 8.5/10 – a score that would have easily been a 10 had the chips been above average.
With chicken strips, diced cucumber, tomato, lettuce, avocado slices and caramelised onion stuffed in a pita pocket, the mild version of the meal was pretty spicy.
It was better than the burger, but not as good as the wrap.
Verdict: 7/10 – also because the chips seemed just a bit too stale.
The drinks come in two flavours – Raspberry Lemonade and the Coco-Pine.
Both frosted drinks – that will set you back R25 – were refreshingly tasty. But be warned, the brain freeze is real!
The slightly sweeter Raspberry Lemonade drink just edged out the Coco-Pine, which had a bit of a granadilla taste to it.
