At Nando’s

The Nando’s restaurant chain is a South African success story. When I first visited one of their restaurants in Malaysia (where they love spicy Portuguese peri-peri chicken) I had no idea it originated from SA. It’s well known locally for its excellent ad campaigns that often react to the local news. Inspired to visit after seeing the company’s inspiring and loud-mouthed CEO interviewed in a film about Joburg, we popped into Melville’s 24-hour outlet before visiting the Mandela Bridge yesterday. Our first Nando’s visit since we arrived last July. I had expected a McD’s fast food experience but it’s much more like a restaurant, with attention to design. The food’s pretty good, delivered to the table with a smile. We’ll be back.
