Nando's Springfield Reviews
Nando's Peri-Peri Comes to Springfield Jun 10, 2015
Nando's Peri-Peri has proven a most welcome addition to the reimagined Springfield Town Center. The focus of the restaurant is Portuguese style chicken, prepared in a number of ways with varieties of its signature Peri-Peri sauce.
Chicken can be ordered in combinations ranging from a 1/4 Chicken Leg & Thigh (my favorite) to wings to sandwiches and wraps. I will include two sides, with a Mixed Leaf salad and Peri Chips (fries) my favorites. Susan very much likes the Macho Peas (pea mash with whole peas, parsley, mint and chilli) side dish. I must also add that I like the Spicy Mixed Olives appetizer. I order the olives to go, and enjoy them later.
A hostess will show you to a table, but patrons must go the the counter to order. Waitstaff then will bring your food.
The restaurant's ambiance projects a Brazilian vibe. I understand its origin is in South Africa and it is a world-wide operation, particularly popular in the UK. I'm pleased we have such an international operation right here locally! European style portion sizes are the norm, which I welcome.
Nando's is something quite different and I highly recommend it.
