Even though Portuguese explorers couldn't pronounce the Swahili name for the African bird's eye chili—pili-pili—the sailors fully embraced its flavor shortly after landing in the region known today as Mozambique. Intrigued by the small, fiery pepper, they combined it with aromatic doses of herbs, garlic, and lemon to create the first peri-peri sauce. That sauce eventually became a wildly popular marinade for poultry, and the tasty concoction made its way to South Africa over the next several centuries. There, in 1987, two friends decided to honor this culinary legacy by founding the first Nando's Peri-Peri restaurant. The eatery continued to remain true to its South African roots, even while expanding to encompass locations in 24 countries across four continents.
Beginning with fresh chickens that never see the inside of a kitchen freezer, the chefs furtively marinate the birds in a secret peri-peri sauce for 24 hours before grilling them over an open flame. Diners dictate the heat level of their order, requesting that the grilled chicken arrive relatively mild or that wings be slathered with even more incendiary spices. The succulent chicken can be plated with hearty side dishes—such as Portuguese-style rice with herbs and peppers or peas with mint—or served in the form of a sandwich, wrap, or pita. To complement the menus' African flavors, Nando's worldwide locations collectively feature more than 4,000 pieces of African artwork.

An expansive dividing screen of embossed trapezoids forms a complex, glowing tessellation through which patrons can glimpse the next dining room. There, the wooden bar seems not to have been built, but to have grown organically at a tapered angle from of the smooth hardwood floor. Between the cushy banquettes, wine cabinets are lit from below and ornately carved slabs of stone from Lebanon hang on the walls.
Tendrils of smoke unfurl like dark blossoms from the kitchen, where a brick oven fueled by natural, all-wood charcoal roasts kebabs, removing excess fat and sealing in flavor. The cooks take a firm stance against chemicals and preservatives, slicing meat fresh daily and utilizing all-natural olive oil cold-pressed and filtered in Lebanon. Servers take a moment to adjust to the gentle lighting as they bear dishes to tables, where glasses clink together, filled with one of more than 100 bottled wines. Lebanese arak, an anise seed liquor, cools over ice on the surface of a granite counter polished to a patina by the excited chatter of geologists.
