Like those who choose extra-hot might just have something to prove, your choice of spice at Nando’s can say a lot about you. Today, the popular restaurant chain has given its menu a bit of a shake-up with a brand-new spice level for all who’re game for a challenge.
For the uninitiated, Nando’s offers varying degrees of heat across five different PERi-PERi flavours on a daily basis: Extra Hot, Hot, Mild, Lemon & Herb, and Plain. Now topping Nando’s iconic PERi-ometer scale, the limited-edition Vusa XXHot flavour is their fiercest and spiciest yet.
Available while stocks last, the sauce adds a kick of intense heat to your meal with a recipe of African Bird’s Eye Chilli, lemon, and garlic. If you need to know, this red sauce measures approximately 175,000 Scoville heat units – so be warned, it can indeed get too hot to handle. Think chicken coated with a dark, fiery red sauce with chilli seeds peeking through.
Perfect for fans, quell the intense heat with an array of bottomless sides. On top of their free-flow drinks, sauces, and frozen yoghurts, Nando’s now offers free-flow chips or rice alongside their flame-grilled chicken! What that also means is you’ll never run out of chips to swipe up every last bit of finger-licking good sauce.
Growing their own African Bird’s Eye Chilli straight from the source in Southern Africa, Nando’s is committed to bettering the community and empowering small-scale African farmers by giving them an additional source of income while providing the most authentic flavours – buying the chillies from these farmers at an unchanging, pre-agreed price all year round. The brand also actively supports independent artists, acquiring their works and designs for use in their restaurants around the world.
