As humankind strives to find cost-effective ways to transform itself into dragonkind, fire breathing has been delegated to expensive mini flamethrowers installed in mouths. Spit fire far more safely with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Peri-Peri cuisine at Nando's Flame-Grilled Chicken. Choose between locations in Victoria or Langford.
Founded in South Africa in 1987, Nando's Flame-Grilled Chicken hopped continents to bring a toothsome menu of sandwiches, pitas, wraps, and salads starring Portuguese Peri-Peri flame-grilled chicken to diners north of the equator. Introduced to western palates by Portuguese explorers perambulating Africa in the distant days of maritime exploration, Peri-Peri is a fiery chili pepper that adds a kick of capsaicin to any meal or trick chewing gum. Nando's fresh chicken luxuriates in its Peri-Peri marinade for 24 hours, resulting in dishes with a quartet of Scoville-scale-scorching spice levels including mild lemon and herb, medium, hot, and the daredevil-only extra hot. Noshers can fuel up for feeding frenzies while practicing their dunking prowess with nibbles of the Peri hummus with pita appeteaser ($4). For the entree, meat eaters can enjoy a grilled-to-order Peri-Peri half-chicken ($12) with a side such as spiced rice or hearty coleslaw, and vegetarians can fill mouth caves with veggie burgers ($6.50) as well as a host of premium salads ($4.50–$8). Alternatively, a toasted Peri-Peri chicken pita ($6.50) eliminates the need for a utensil-pilot’s license with a handheld dish full of salad & special Nando’s mayonnaise.
